This paper reports a network based computer simulation and control platform for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The complete platform has been built by a complex software integration in NIST/ECMA model having user interfaces on distributed platforms, open-source and educational vertical tools accessing public domain maps, satellite images and tool libraries. Entire platform is setup to use UDP for interprocess message communication. Successful integration is illustrated for a UAV and simulation results are presented.
