Abstract: In drone applications, the drone could send data using telemetry devices or radio frequency module which has a limited range. So, there is no interaction between user and drone after a certain range. In this study, a hierarchical tree topology based wireless drone network is designed and presented to overcome range challenge. Proposed network consist of three main parts; Control Center (CC), Master Drone (MD) and Slave Drones (SDs). The CC as a network manager communicates with just MD via telemetry devices. SDs are explorer drones for the search and rescue application. The data transfer between CC and SDs is provided by MD which is explorer like SDs. This paper clearly shows that the enhancement of the communication range is possible with such this approach. Also the designed drone networks are simulated using V-REP (Virtual Robot Experimentation Platform). According to the simulation results, the proposed drone network system operates quickly, and finds the target in 5 minutes, which classical system not find in 10 minutes. The proposed model clearly shows that an application using a drone is completed in a shorter time with the drone swarm well organized.
