The electronic structure of the uranium dipnictides UX2 (X=As, Sb, and Bi) is investigated by means of ab initio calculations based on density functional theory. The calculated Fermi surfaces are presented and compared to available experimental models obtained from de Haas-van Alphen experiments. In agreement with experiments they are found to have a significant two-dimensional character. Also, the change of the electronic properties through the series is discussed.
