SMi’s UAVs - Challenges and Opportunities masterclass - hosted by Bournemouth University will take place on the 2nd April in London

The analysts forecast the Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market to grow at a CAGR of 3.17 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in UAV launch. The Global UAV market has also been witnessing an increase in R&D. However, the rapid technological changes could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
