Comprehensive List of UAVs for Humanitarian Response

The Humanitarian UAV Network (UAViators) is carrying out a comprehensive evaluation of UAVs and related technologies for use in humanitarian settings. We’ve developed an evaluation framework for this assessment and have now drafted this list of UAV models to determine which are worth evaluating. As you’ll note, the link also points to three other related lists: cameras, sensors and software for image processing and analysis. We’ll be evaluating these as well to identify which are the best fit for use by humanitarians in the field.

We are actively seeking feedback on these preliminary lists in order to identify which items we should prioritize for evaluation. The lists are available in this open and editable Google Spreadsheet. Each list include a column for you to add any comments you might have about any entries. We’re particularly interested in getting feedback on which items are not worth evaluating and which should be added at to the list. Thank you!
