The directory represents worldwide information on Unmanned Aeronautical Vehicles (UAV) systems presently being manufactured. With the industry changing rapidly, it is difficult to track companies entering and exiting the field. This compilation has been put together from a number of sources including association membership, tradeshows, publications, press releases, websites, and government reports.

This UAV Marketing Directory includes:

  • UAV Marketing Data
  • Worldwide Systems Manufacturers Directory
  • Systems by Country and Manufacturers
  • Industry Contacts
  • UAV Test Facilities Worldwide
  • Airship Suppliers and Capabilities

This directory is intended to be a marketing guide for subsystem, components, and other companies unfamiliar with the UAV market.

What's in a Name?

There are many terms being used for Unmanned Aerial Systems, such as UAV, UAS, STUAS, SUAS, VCLASS, VTUAV, UCAV, BAMS, RPV, RPAs, Drones, UCAS, Target Drones, etc. This Marketing guide covers all aerial Unmanned Systems, including fixed wing, rotary wing, helicopters, airships, tethered vehicles, and others.
