UAV stands for Unmanned Autonomous Vehicle
UGV stands for Unmanned Ground Vehicle
Unmanned autonomous vehicles, commonly known as UAVs, are remotely operated vehicles without the need for a human operator. These vehicles can be utilized in several challenging, risky, or infeasible situations where human operators cannot be employed. UAVs comprise an internal computer that enables them to make independent decisions about movement, enemy and ally identification, and other actions.
There are three main categories of UAV/UGV:
Small, quiet, unarmed camera with zoom/NV/thermal
A 6X6 inch wheel drive that can carry a mounted weapon and a camera with zoom/NV/thermal.
