The research concerns the methods of UAV group control in networks with duplex communication between nodes built on the "client-server" architecture. Such systems belong to self-organized networks with variable topology. It is important to study the allowable parameters of deviation from the task in the management of a group of UAVs and analysis of the network topology for the group flighting. The network was optimized according to the Ant Colony algorithm ACO. The application of different types of algorithms prevents routing problems in networks, such as ANTMANET, AntNet, ACODV and others. Methods of coordination of group joint actions are considered. A method is proposed by which the optimal number of UAVs operated by one operator can be determined and the traffic intensity of the communication channel is calculated, as well as the bandwidth and packet transmission delay are estimated.
