Abstract

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.
