An intelligent and agile wireless communication scheme is a key factor in provision of efficient air-to-ground (A2G) communication for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) operations. For this purpose we review and propose an architecture for aeronautical cognitive communication system (ACCS) that will be providing command, control and communication (C3) link between ground control stations (GCSs) and multiple UAVs utilizing cognitive radio (CR) concept. The factors reviewed and accounted for in the design process are the topology of cognitive detectors, connectivity between cognitive detector and control agency, connection with unmanned traffic management (UTM) system, data link requirements imposed by cognitive scheme, failure notification and recovery, etc. The proposed ACCS is suitable for supporting UAV operations and features a distributed non-communication architecture consisting of GCS network in the ground zone, hybrid data link with the static uplink and the flexible downlink, demonstrating a dynamic nature overall with the frequency handoff scheme generated periodically in accordance with current spectrum environment.
