|What are unmanned aerial Systems (Drones) Wikipadia|
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.

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.

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.
