In this letter, a novel framework to deliver critical spread out URLLC services deploying unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in an out-of-coverage area is developed. To this end, the resource optimization problem, i.e., resource block (RB) and power allocation, are studied for UAV-assisted 5G networks to meet the objective of jointly maximizing the average sum-rate and minimizing the transmit power of UAV while satisfying the URLLC requirements. To cope with the sporadic URLLC traffic problem, an efficient online URLLC traffic prediction model based on Gaussian Process Regression (GPR) is proposed to derive optimal URLLC scheduling and transmit power strategy. The formulated problem is revealed as a mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP), which is solved following the introduced successive minimization algorithm. Finally, simulation results are provided to show the efficacy of our proposed solution approach.
