This paper presents an approach to obtain surveillance through a swarm of fixed wing airplanes and quad-rotor UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle). The approach is presented on a realistic situation where an autonomous fixed wing airplane and semi-autonomous swarm of quad-rotor UAV(s) work together to surveillance an area. The fixed wing airplane UAV determines the altitude, surveillance area, GPS location and provides communication and image recognition capabilities among the swarm and the ground station. The swarm quad-rotor UAV(s) are autonomous and can accept directives from the ground station and the fixed wing. Sensors deployed from the quad-rotor UAVs, directly communicate with the quad-rotors swarm. In this scenario, heterogeneous systems and human control interact in a system of systems architecture.
