With the recent advances in aircraft technologies, software, sensors, and communications, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can offer a wide range of applications. UAVs can play important roles in applications, such as search and rescue, situation awareness in natural disasters, environmental monitoring, and perimeter surveillance. Developing UAV applications involves integrating hardware, software, sensors, and communication components with the UAV’s base system. UAV applications development projects are complex because of the various development stages and the integration complexity of high component. This research addresses the business and technical challenges encountered by UAV applications development and Project Management (PM). It identifies the risks associated with UAV applications development and compares various risk mitigation and management techniques that can be used. The study also investigates the role of Knowledge Management (KM) in reducing and managing risks. Furthermore, this study proposes a KM framework that reduces risks in UAV applications development projects. In addition, the proposed framework relies on KM and text mining techniques to enhance the efficiency of executing these projects.
