The purpose of this study is to find out what kind of services can be designed by utilizing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). This study provides an understanding of the current obstacles for producing these services. The legal UAS issues in public and private organizations are examined. The biggest challenge in using Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles (UAVs) is that legislation does not recognise enough a UAV as an aircraft. Training and other requirements for the operator and the actual flyer are unspecified for UASoperations. UAVs development is waiting for standardization. The aim of this research is to analyze and assemble summary about this issue by using data triangulation. From the research perspective there are needs for UAS and also social general ignorance how UAS can be exploit in civilian use. Challenge for cooperation in this particular case is to reconcile the needs of different actors - public and private - under common interests. The market has a huge economic promise for different UAS classes. By other means than utilizing UAS, the same benefits are difficult to be achieved; therefore societal benefits are particularly high. UAS would significantly increase the number of the biggest priorities of safety, security and environmental issues.
