It is hoped that there will never be a war in the world, but one of the defensive requirements of any country during the war is the using Unmanned Aerial Vehicle used for destruction and defense. Today, UAVs movement from origin to destination is an important problem due to the abundant application of UAVs in wars and experimental research. This is important because the range of some UAVs in fly time is low, and others are very high due to their fuel. Parametric indeterminacy is several factors in UAVs movement prediction and trajectory, such as speed, movement angle, accuracy, movement time, and situation and direct control. So this research is trying to provide a method based on LQG controller with and then set motion and specify path scheduling without deviations based on swarm intelligence algorithms in combinational mode: Dragonfly-Firefly algorithm. The simulation results showed that the UAV power consumption is comparable to 56.2045 mW, which signifies a prosperous pass. Mean Square Error, Peak Signal to Noise Ratio, Signal-to-Noise Ratio, and Accuracy Criteria will all be used in this study. Based on the results of the evaluation criteria, it is feasible to ensure that the recommended technique will be used for UAV route scheduling and target trajectory optimization when the project is finished.
