Due to the limited transmission power, the data transmission between the unmanned aerial vehicle and the ground station often needs the synergetic forwarding. The optimization of the synergetic forwarding organization is important to the performance of the unmanned aerial vehicle communication networks. This paper aims to optimize the energy cost using the synergetic forwarding mode in the unmanned aerial vehicle communication networks. To reduce the expensive information exchange and improve the robust of the network, we put forward an energy cost orient forwarding allocation approach using game based intelligent algorithm. The theoretic analysis and simulation results verify that the put forward method could achieve optimal energy cost communication organization.
