This work investigates the secrecy issues for the secrecy reconfigurable intelligent surface-based integrated satellite unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) relay networks with multiple vehicle eavesdroppers. Particularly, the maximal ratio combining (MRC) eavesdropping is utilized to overhear the legitimate signal information. The UAV is applied to forward the legitimate signal to the destination user. Reconfigurable intelligent surface is applied to ensure the transmission. Relied on the proposed secrecy system model and MRC eavesdropping scheme, this paper gets the detailed investigations for the secrecy outage probability (SOP) through the whole signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) to valuate the effects of important parameters on the SOP. Moreover, to achieve the further impacts of main parameters on the SOP at high SNRs, the approximate analysis for the SOP is also gotten together with the secrecy diversity order (SDO) and secrecy coding gain (SCG). At last, several typical Monte Carlo (MC) results are obtained to present the rightness of obtained theoretical analysis.
