UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES: FORCE MULTIPLIERS

rb

UAVs will be the major force multipliers in the future battles, as they are not only economical to develop and maintain than the conventional war fighting machines but also reduce the risk of human life. In recent years, the capabilities of unmanned vehicles have been employed over a larger spectrum of combat and civil/commercial roles which in turn has driven the UAV market.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) known as Drones or Remotely Piloted Vehicles (RPVs), and, more recently termed as Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) simply can be described as a vehicle that operates without an onboard human presence, is either autonomous or remotely operated and is used for ISR activities and combat support role. These will be the major force multipliers in the future battles as they are not only economical to develop and maintain than the conventional war fighting machines but also reduce the risk of human life. In recent years, the capabilities of unmanned vehicles have been employed over a larger spectrum of combat roles, including armed-combat support with remarkable success, which in turn has driven the major defence industries to develop a whole new portfolio of weapons specifically designed for use on future unmanned combat vehicles. Besides UAVs have great potential in law and order management, border monitoring and coastline surveillance Agriculture, Land surveying, Film making, Inspection of Labour forces, 3-D Modelling of Building and landscapes and also special areas like studying the craters of active volcanos etc. The diversity of applications has resulted in the development of a wide range of different types of UAV depending on role and application.
