In this letter, an optimal placement and distribution of cooperative unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the next generation heterogeneous networks is presented in order to optimize the overall network delays. The positioning issue is formulated as a minimax facility problem, which is then resolved using the entropy nets by formation of an optimal placement algorithm. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is demonstrated in terms of significant gains including increased UAV positioning accuracy and reduced delays in UAV allocation.
