Iran among pioneers in streamlining use of UAVs

Financial Tribune- Unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as UAVs or drones, have opened new doors in the realm of aviation on a global scale, especially Iran.

According to the International Civil Aviation Organization, an unmanned aerial vehicle is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. UAVs are a component of an unmanned aircraft system, which include a ground-based controller and a system of communications between the two.

The flight of UAVs may operate with various degrees of autonomy: either under remote control by a human operator or autonomously by onboard computers.
