In this paper, we propose a unified cooperative control architecture UCCA that supports effective cooperation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles UAVs and learning capabilities for UAV missions. Main features of the proposed UCCA include 1 it has a modular structure each function module focuses on a particular type of task and provide services to other function modules through well defined interfaces 2 it allows the efficient sharing of UAV control and onboard resources by the function modules and is able to effectively handle simultaneously multiple objectives in the UAV operation 3 it facilitates the cooperation among different function modules 4 it supports effective cooperation among multiple UAVs on a mission s tasks, 5 an objective driven learning approach is also supported, which allows UAVs to systematically explore uncertain mission environments to increase the level of situation awareness for the achievement of their missiontask objectives.
