Along with the development of the communication network technology and computer technology, the diversity of information in modern society and the geographical area scale has placed limits on the single unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in the tasks, so that cooperative mission of multiple UAVs will be the main form to be utilized in the future information society. Interference and energy limit are two key issues in the network, so we propose a novel opportunistic interference alignment (OIA) scheme with wireless energy harvesting (EH), which can eliminate the interference while optimizing the energy efficiency. Extensive simulation results are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed OIA scheme with wireless EH.
