Over the past few decades of imaging, these sensing instruments are now more advanced with multiple missions such as surveillance, monitoring, tracking and destruction of spatial objects. Nowadays, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are much prevalent, which could acquire a comprehensive view and could perform actions even to the lowest target levels at the ground. The UAV can be developed with minimal cost than other remote mission. Hence, it is much cost-effective. This chapter aims at detailing the critical aspects of two different variants of remotesensing (RS) technologies in UAVs: (a) multispectral imaging (MSI) and (b) hyperspectral imaging, which accounts for the spatial and spectral signatures of the observed underlying natural phenomena.
