1. Classification of UAV
By applications, UAVs are classified into military, civil pro and consumer products. Military UAVs target reconnaissance and combat. Civil pro products aim at inspection and geological survey. Consumer UAVs are mainly miniature rotor UAVs which is one type of micro aerial vehicle requiring relatively low level technology. 


Classification by applications


By technologies, UAVs are classified into unmanned helicopter and fixed-wing UAVs, multiple rotor unmanned aircraft, unmanned airships, parasail with the first three types being the most widely used.
