A method and system of determining a location of a remote transmitter is provided. The method includes: receiving, with a plurality of sensors operably associated with a plurality of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), a signal emitted from a remote transmitter, the emitted signal being indicative of an actual location of the remote transmitter; estimating a first location of the remote transmitter based on the emitted signal received by the plurality of sensors, the plurality of sensors being associated with a first arrangement of the corresponding plurality of UAVs relative to the remote transmitter; changing the first arrangement of the plurality of UAVs relative to the remote transmitter to a target arrangement of the plurality of UAVs relative to the remote transmitter based on the estimation of the first location of the remote transmitter; and estimating a second location of the remote transmitter based on the target arrangement of the plurality of sensors and the corresponding plurality ofUAVs relative to the remote transmitter. The second estimated location is more accurate of the actual location of the remote transmitter than the first estimated location.
