With the growing demand of real-time communications in anywhere for anyone, UAV communications has been developed, as the UAV can be simply deployed in cities, remote areas, over the seas, etc. To support the high bandwidth requests for UAV communications, millimeter wave band is considered as a promising candidate. This talk will overview some research challenges and opportunities in developing mmWave communications for UAVs, including channel modeling, beam training and tracking, dynamic routing and mmWave cellular technology.
