UAVs are the next generation of aerial platforms to be deployed by defense ministries around the world. Demand for UAVs is fuelled by the successful deployment of these systems in combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. These unmanned platforms are used as force multipliers, performing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, target recognition, damage assessment and electronic warfare.

Defense ministries around the world are investing in this capability to reduce troop casualties. Mini and VTOL UAVs are also affordable and capable of performing ISR missions, and demand for these cost-effective UAVs is rising in countries with low spending power.
