The Wireless Token Ring Protocol (WTRP) is a medium access control protocol for wireless networks in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. It supports quality of service in terms of bounded latency and reserved bandwidth. This quality of service guarantee is critical in mesh stability of the formation of the vehicles. The communication of the speed and the velocity of the lead vehicle to all other vehicles in the formation had been shown to be sufficient for mesh stability of the system.
