Nowadays, thousands of Unmanned aerial vehicles are in use worldwide, and one fast growing application is in transportation / logistics: Unmanned Cargo Aircraft (UCA).
It is clear that UCA can be cheaper and more productive than other means of transport, and are suitable for low-volume cargo streams for which the use of manned aircraft is uneconomical. But which developments can we expect in the near future? Which markets could benefit from UCA? What should a UCA look like? And will aircraft manufacturers invest in UCA technology?
The Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Systems can be divided into four segments:
- Military Systems
- Long Range / Medium-High Payload Systems
- Specialised/Irregular Delivery Systems
- Urban Delivery Systems
