Aerial monitoring applications can be characterized by constantly changing operating conditions, and need for adequate resources to maintain stability, mobility and communication. Heterogeneous aerial sensor network has the ability to move nodes based on application specific goals that can provide three-dimensional sensing, and data distribution using hierarchical communication strategy. In this research paper, swarm based heterogeneous aerial sensor network is deployed on the fly using off-the shelf copters to provide increased sensing accuracy and reliability in comparison networks that require a prior knowledge of the infrastructure. The robustness of swarm approach makes it a suitable algorithm for aerial monitoring environment.
