The communication protocols used in Base Transceiver Station (BTS) could be harmful to human species and other life forms in the ecosystem. The BTS used for these systems could emit radiations beyond safety threshold. Therefore, it is essential to monitor such power radiation levels from time to time. Manual readings at each BTS are strenuous and time consuming work. This paper proposes radiation measurement using Quad Phone assembled within the Quadcopter using android software. Quadcopter is

An application is developed to monitor the power radiation emitted by each of the bands and the associated communication protocol by utilizing the Quad Phone. It can use CDMA, GSM, 3G and LTE protocols at the designated frequency bands. A Quad Phone incorporating the android application is used to record power radiation levels at several points around a single tower facilitated by the Quadcopter flight navigation system. The Wave Point navigation is a hardware module used to move around a target
