When you mention cargo UAS people smile and usually ask “have you heard something?

It must be said –

At this point this is what is called “preliminary evaluations” or ” early feasibility studies” the different names refer to one certain thing – the unmanned air system (UAS) as a cargo mover is on the long,  but paved way to implementation.

Israel as a leading UAS developer with 40 years of operational experience, is in a very good position to start looking at this option.

The talk is vague but when you start asking questions, you learn very fast that the it includes numbers , weights , range and things like that.

Nothing real will happen until UAS are allowed to fly in civil airspaces like manned aircraft. The process has been going on for some years ,  but it is very slow. The experts say that the obstacles are only psychological. Technically, they say they are ready to board  a UAS and cross the Atlantic.

But between the general talk there are hints about UAS that will be capable of  carrying  “many tons” of cargo to long distances. This will make the transfer cheaper and that alone is an incentive to the developers.

The technology is here, the need is here, the human imagination is here. Nothing can beat such a combination . It will take time,  but cargo , heavy cargo will be flown by very advanced robots and this will no question be one small step to unmanned passenger aircraft.

Will Israel take the lead? I can only guess that it will.
