The first purpose of this study is to develop a GCS(Ground Control System) by using RF(Radio Frequency) wireless communication equipments for UAV(Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). The second goal is to develop an antenna tracking system operating automatically. UAV receives flight data from a RF wireless system. So the role of antenna tracking system is very important to keep good communication state between UAV and GCS. GCS can check flight data and display a aviation state of UAV in real-time. The flight data displayed in real-time by GCS include the latitude, longitude, altitude, speed and so on. Experiments that measure a communication range and reliability are needed to develop a RF wireless communication system.
