Middle East

UAS policy and regulation in the Middle East region is highly controlled.  Given recent and ongoing conflicts and the use of armed drones within this context, personal and commercial use of unmanned aerial systems is dramatically reduced.

Some countries such as Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates are insulated sufficiently and with adequate economic resources to attempt to position themselves as leaders in commercial development of UAS.
