PELE: Power Efficient Legitimate Eavesdropping via Jamming in UAV Communications

Abstract:
We consider a wireless information surveillance in UAV network, where a legitimate unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) proactively eavesdrops communication between two suspicious UAVs. However, challenges arise due to lossy airborne channels and limited power of the UAV. In this paper, we study an emerging legitimate eavesdropping paradigm that the legitimate UAV improves the eavesdropping performance via jamming the suspicious communication. Moreover, a power efficient legitimate eavesdropping scheme, PELE, is proposed to maximize the number of eavesdropped packets from the legitimate UAV while maintaining a target signal to interference plus noise ratio at the suspicious link. Numerical results are shown to validate the performance of PELE. Additionally, four typical fading channel models are applied to the network so as to investigate their impact on PELE.
