The aim of this work is to consider the results of experimental testing (full-scale complex tests) in the Center of space systems (CSS) «Dubna» – a branch of FSUE "Space communication" of an experimental sample of satellite radio communication complex (SRCC), held in December 2017. The main objectives of this article include: a description of the conditions of ground-based complex tests, evaluation and analysis of the results obtained in the process of ground-based complex tests, the formation of proposals and recommendations for the practical application of the developed experimental model of satellite radio communication complex in current and future complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). The main results include the achieved high speed of information transfer from UAV to ground control and information processing
point (GCIPP) – telemetry and target information, and from GCIPP to UAV control team, the minimum number of losses in the transmission of information for the speeds received. The main conclusions based on the results of ground-based complex tests are technical possibility and practical feasibility of equipping all current and future UAV systems with a satellite radio communication complex which will significantly increase the efficiency of their application by repeatedly increasing the radius of their action in solving set targets, ensure the organization of a network-centric circuit of UAV information exchange in the group using a spacecraft repeater.

Key words: complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles, satellite radio communication, spacecraft, experimental sample of satellite radio communication facilities, onboard satellite terminal, ground satellite terminal, ground tests, signal-code constructions, modulation, coding, information transmission rate, error probability, signal/noise.
