In this paper, we present a three-tier supply chain network model consisting of a fleet of UAVs organized as a FANET (Fly ad hoc network) connected one to each other with direct wireless links, managed by a fleet of UAV controllers, whose purpose is to provide 5G network slices on demand to users and devices on the ground.

Abstract

In this paper, we present a three-tier supply chain network model consisting of a fleet of UAVs organized as a FANET (Fly ad hoc network) connected one to each other with direct wireless links, managed by a fleet of UAV controllers, whose purpose is to provide 5G network slices on demand to users and devices on the ground. The aim of this paper is to determine the optimal distributions of request flows. We obtain a constrained optimization problem for which we derive the associated Variational inequality formulation. Also, qualitative properties in terms of existence and uniqueness of solution are provided. Finally, a numerical example is performed to validate the effectiveness of the model.
