What is the Material Selection for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(Drone)?

An unmanned aerial vehicle (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 on board computers or by the remote control of a pilot on the ground or in another vehicle.This post mainly focus on,what is the Material Selection for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(Drone) and is as follows.

Explanation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle:

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 Vehicle:

Unmanned aerial vehicles have mostly found in military and special operations applications, but also are increasingly finding uses in
  • Civil applications such as policing, surveillance and firefighting
  • Non-military security work such as inspection of power or pipelines.
UAVs are often preferred for missions that are too “dull, dirty or dangerous” for manned aircraft.
The remaining contents of material selection for Unmanned Aerial  is presented in the PPT which is  shown below.
