Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly referred as drones, are aircraft without a human pilot aboard. The flight is controlled either autonomously, or by an onboard computer, or by remote control from the ground or another vehicle. The large-sized remotely pilot aircraft (RPA) are powered by internal combustion engines, while relatively small UAVs are driven by electric motors. Such small electric-powered UAVs are mainly used for military and defense applications, as without combustion, they produce low sound and are, hence, found to be more suitable for spy missions. In addition, there has been an increasing interest in civilian or commercial applications of UAVs, such as aerial photography, agriculture, 3D mapping, and wildlife protection.

The analysts forecast global UAV market to grow at a CAGR of 12.7% during the period 2017-2021.
