According to experts from “Teal Group” over the next ten years the space industry will grow increasingly fast in the UAV segment. UAV development and production costs will almost double: if the annual cost of the UAV market in 2008 was estimated at $ 3.4 billion then in 2017 it would increase to $ 7.3 billion. The main reason for the rapid development in the UAV's global market is the US strategy to supply troops with high-tech systems that enable information and network-oriented military operations. At the same time, UAVs are considered as promising means for next-generation intelligence and attacks.
Keywords: economical aspects, unmanned aerial vehicles, integration of UAV’s, unified airspace.
