For the multi-UAV path planning problem in disaster relief, the genetic algorithm was used to encode the cruise matrix of the UAV group to form a chromosome, the number of individuals and the maximum genetic algebra to optimize the cruise trajectory was set, and a drone terminal traffic transfer matrix that assigns the appropriate power to each user was established due to the 0-1 planning and non- Linear programming, minimizing the sum of time for the drone to complete all tasks. Genetic algorithm analysis results: When 3 drones were sent from H and J, it was took at least 11.37 h to complete the life sign search for the seven key areas. At this time, the total distance of the cruise was 3 808 km, and 3 planes were dispatched from H. The communication equipment and sends different content to the 72 ground terminals in the disaster area was carried by the drone. It was took at least 25.81 h to complete all tasks. At this time, the total distance of the cruise was 1 547 km.

Key words: drone, disaster relief, signs of life detection, genetic algorithm, 0-1 planning, nonlinear programming, route plan
