Material Selection for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles(Drone): An unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) is commonly known as a drone and also referred by several other names is an aircraft without a human pilot. The flight of UAV’s may be controlled either autonomously by onboard computers or by the remote control of a pilot on the ground or in another vehicle. This post mainly focuses on the Material Selection for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drone) and is as follows.
CONTENTS of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles:

- Uses of UAV’S
- Conclusions and Future scope
Explanation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles:
ICAO classified unmanned aircraft into two types under Circular 328 AN/190:
- Autonomous aircraft – currently considered unsuitable for regulation due to legal and liability issues
- Remotely piloted aircraft – subject to civil regulation under ICAO and under the relevant national aviation authority.
- Historically, UAVs were simple remotely piloted aircraft, but autonomous control is increasingly being employed.
Applications of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles:
- Civil applications such as policing, surveillance and firefighting
- Non-military security work such as inspection of power or pipelines.
