Abstract

This work employs an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) as a jammer to aid a covert communication from a transmitter Alice to a receiver Bob, where the LAV transmits artificial noise (AN) with random power to deliberately create interference to a warden Willie. To maximize the system performance, we formulate an optimization problem to jointly design the UAV's trajectory and Alice's transmit power. The formulated optimization problem is non-convex that is difficult to tackle directly. To this end, this work, for the first time, develops a geometric (GM) method to solve the optimization problem. Our examination shows that the GM method can significantly outperforms a benchmark method in terms of achieving a higher average covert rate and the complexity of the GM method is lower than that of the benchmark method.
