UAV equipment has the advantages of low loss, zero casualties, reusability and high maneuverability. The world's military powers are actively developing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) adapted to domestic needs. This paper introduces the development and application of UAV equipment technology in military aspects, and then analyzes the future development trend of UAV equipment technology from new power technologies, stealth technologies, artificial intelligence and new manufacturing technologies. n the future, UAV equipment will be integrated into various military fields, such as aviation, shipwreck, reconnaissance, etc., and even change the human combat mode.


drone; long battery life; electronic skin; stealth technology.
