Drones can be referred to as an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known  as an unpiloted aerial vehicle and a remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), is an aircraft without a human pilot onboard.  ICAO categorize unmanned aircraft into two types under Circular 328 AN/190.

There are many different names for these aircraft. They are UAV (unpiloted aerial vehicle),
RPAS (remote piloted aircraft systems) and model aircraft.

It has also become popular to refer to them as drones. Their flight is controlled either independently or unconventionally by onboard computers or by the remote control of a pilot on the ground or in another vehicle.

 The typical launch and recovery method of an unmanned  aerial systems or aircraft is by the function of an automatic system or an external operator on the ground. Historically, UAVs were simple remotely piloted aircraft, but autonomous control is increasingly being employed.  One of the best known and widely used types was the Nazi-German V-1 that flew autonomously powered by a pulse jet. Its successor was the Nazi-German V-2, also autonomous but rocket powered, and partly functioning ballistic ally. They are usually deployed for military and special operation solicitations  and confrontations , but also used in a small but emergent number of civil applications, such as policing and firefighting, and nonmilitary 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.

Further than the military submissions of  unmanned aerial Systems (Drones), UAVs with which “drones” became most supplementary, numerous civil aviation uses have been technologically advanced, including aerial surveying of crops acrobatic aerial footage in film-making  search and rescue operations inspecting power lines and pipelines, counting wildlife, delivering medical supplies to remote or otherwise inaccessible regions, with some manufacturers re-branding the technology as “un manned aerial systems” (UASs) in preference over the military-connotative term “drones.
More so,  Very significant in commercial aerial surveillance.

Aerial surveillance of large  regions and or capacities is made possible with low cost UAV systems. Surveillance applications include heifers monitoring, wildfire mapping, pipeline security, home security, road patrol, and anti-piracy. The trend for the use of UAV technology in commercial aerial surveillance is escalating rapidly with increased improvement of automated object detection methodologies.

Remote sensing

UAV remote sensing functions include electromagnetic spectrum sensors, gamma ray sensors, biological sensors, and chemical sensors. A UAV’s electromagnetic sensors typically include visual spectrum, infrared, or near infrared cameras as well as radar systems. Other electromagnetic wave detectors such as microwave and ultraviolet spectrum sensors may also be used but are uncommon. Biological sensors are sensors capable of detecting the airborne presence of various microorganisms and other biological factors. Chemical sensors use laser spectroscopy to analyze the concentrations of each element in the air.
