The lat­est word in tech­nol­ogy is un­manned. At the first round­table meet­ing, Ray Mann, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, West Wales Air­port, said, “The in­ter­net has cre­ated a sit­u­a­tion where there is now an in­creas­ing re­quire­ment to move goods quickly from the sup­plier to the con­sumer. Although ini­tially de­vel­oped for mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions, UCA can be con­structed in any size and shape de­pend­ing on the task re­quired.”

Glyn Hughes, Global Head of Cargo, IATA, com­mented, “UCAs have the po­ten­tial to cre­ate new mod­els for busi­ness and ser­vice de­liv­ery but they also have the abil­ity to trans­form in­dus­tries and over­come in­fra­struc­ture lim­i­ta­tions. For full eco­nomic and so­cial ben­e­fits of com­mer­cial drone tech­nol­ogy to be re­alised the ground­work needs to be done.”
