Description: In article the topical issues related to processing of digital aerial photographs in uav complexes (UAV) of air reconnaissance are considered. The generalized analysis of the ukrainian UAV, the existing transmission channels is carried out and the appropriate dependence of information intensity of the initial aerial photographs on data transmission rate on commu?ication links is built. Need of reduction of aerial photographs information intensity when maintaining key signs (planimetric and brightness components) of objects of air reconnaissance is justified. The generalized information technology of aerial photographs processing for information delivery efficiency increasing in the intelligence information processing automated systems is created.
Keywords: UAV complex, aerial photograph, transformant, redundance, coding
