Composite materials are essentially a combination of two or more distinct materials that are combined together to fashion a superior category material. With various innovations in the field of composite technology, the power of these materials have significantly increased and is actively replacing metal alloys such as aluminum, titanium etc. The advancement in the materials and production technologies have enabled the implementation of improved design with reduced size, weight, cost and aerodynamic drag of unmanned systems. In unmanned systems, these composites are preferred increasingly so as to reduce the weight of the aircraft and increase the payload content. Carbon fiber reinforced polymer is one of the popularly known substance used in unmanned systems.
