Advances in the commercial and military technologies are rapidly increasing the capabilities of low cost micro and small UAVs, enabling them to carry out missions that are comparable to the larger UAVs at a considerably lesser cost and risk.
In addition, new concepts of operation, such as cooperative behavior protocols swarming will open the door to numerous missions that were once thought impossible for small low-cost and low-tech UAVs. In future, micro and small UAVs will conduct missions across the full spectrum of conflict, from intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD), and electronic warfare (EW) to attack and strike operations. Given their inherent low cost, flexibility, and expendability, micro and small UAVs will play a major role in the success of the future Air Force.
Micro-UAVs can operate in three-dimensional environments, explore, and map multi-story buildings, manipulate, and transport objects. SUAVs are opening up several new opportunities from pilots for UAVs to electronics, sensors, and camera.
Due to terrorist attacks, the UAV spending across the globe, has gained critical importance. The multi usage of micro and mini UAV in various applications also helps the market increase their shares. U.S., Europe, and Israel are the major players in the small UAV market.
The electric propulsion systems technology advancement will take place in 2019.The various applications of small UAV in navy is relaying radio signals, electronic intelligence, warfare. In armed forces small UAVs are used for target destination and monitoring, reconnaissance, location and destruction of land mines. Small UAVs are also used by air forces for base security, damage assessment, radar jamming and its destruction.
