This chapter provides the background and context for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and UAV networks with a focus on their civilian applications. It discusses, for example, the types of UAVs, fuel, payload capacity, speed, and endurance. It will also discuss the state-of-the-art in engineering and technology aspects of UAVs and UAV networks and the advantages of UAV networks, including enhanced situational awareness and reduced latency in communications among the UAVs. It presents the applications of UAV networks, research opportunities, and challenges involved in designing, developing, and deploying UAV networks, and the roadmap for research in UAV networks.
