UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or drones are aircraft without a human pilot and or either controlled by on-board computers or under remote control from another aircraft or on from ground control. They are mainly used for military applications, but also used in a small but growing number of civil applications, such as fire fighting and non military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. UAVs usually fall into one of six functional categories (although multi-role airframe platforms are becoming more prevalent): 1. Target and decoy — providing ground and aerial gunnery a target that simulates an enemy aircraft or missile. 2. Reconnaissance — providing battlefield intelligence. 3. Combat — providing attack capability for high-risk missions (see Unmanned combat air vehicle). 4. Logistics — UAVs specifically designed for cargo and logistics operation. 5. Research and development — used to further develop UAV technologies to be integrated into field deployed UAV aircraft. 6. Civil and Commercial UAVs — UAVs specifically designed for civil and commercial applications. This video clip shows a UAV Surveillance Drone Video of a Helicopter tracking insurgents.
