In order to make them very suitable for extreme surveillance devices, the ability to track new technologies and applications. A large number of applications related to extreme events especially natural disasters, agriculture, water, forestry, military, housing, health monitoring, crisis response & emergency management, regional and industrial surveillance, have already been researched from the perspective of emerging technologies, and some of these surveillance applications have drawn a great deal of interest. New innovations are increasingly becoming the most relevant and valuable source of expertise and intelligence in the face of extreme incidents. This covers all of them from the memories of everyone to all that happens in the world. In natural events, video tracking, flood images, social media, voice and video, to name a few, only if their volumes escalate to the degree that current delivery and analysis technologies do not accommodate them efficiently can there be more new developments. UAV networks can range from sluggish to dynamic structure; they have sporadic connexions and fluid topology. While ad hoc mesh networks are assumed to be more appropriate for UAV networks, the design of multi-UAV networks has been understudied. Software Defined Networking (SDN) will make it easy to implement and handle new networks in a modular way and help to minimise costs , improve security and network capacity. UAV network routing requirements go beyond the needs of MANETS and VANETS. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) allow people in emergency situations to enter necessary skills and expertise. Multiple UAVs creating a UAV network (UAVNet) could work together to execute particular tasks in a more effective and knowledgeable way than making a single UAV by communicating with each other. UAV Nets have unusual characteristics of strong complexity, unreliable wireless aerial communications, and probabilities of UAV collision. We suggest a special issue aimed at collecting the current research and development advances in the field of software-defined disaster area UAV contact networks for intense surveillance in order to overcome these challenges. Original papers are sought and discuss the most recent issues and challenges.
