Aerial Services completed this market survey of existing Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) in September 2012 and then updated it in May of 2014. It contains well over 150 different models of UAS and dozens of UAS-sized sensors and photogrammetric software from all over the world. The products listed here are intended primarily for civil use.
This information illustrates the diversity of unmanned aerial systems and, with time, will record just how quickly this market is changing and maturing. The main utility of this information will be to quickly discover the plethora of available options for Unmanned Aerial Systems useful for creating geospatial information and services. Today’s major players in each of these market segments are easily identified.
This database is not complete. Not only is this market rapidly developing with different products being offered and retired each week, but no attempt was made to include those UAS used primarily for military purposes or those marketed only in foreign countries.
Aerial Services acknowledges the Iowa Space Grant Consortium (ISGC) for making the original market survey possible. Intern Garrett Ramthum, funded by ISGC completed much of this work while working at Aerial Services.
