The importance of rotary-wing and fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), which have recently been used in various fields all over the world, is increasing day by day. Some of these vehicles are not only used for civilian life, but also in the military field. In this field, systems that undertake important tasks in the military field have been developed with very different technologies. These systems, which have developed rapidly in recent years, have become preferred because they facilitate the needs. The success of our country in the field of UAV has reached an important level and has set an example to the whole world. Among these systems, the UAV, which operate autonomously, have increased their importance because they provide great convenience to the user. For these systems, in this study, it has been tried to fulfill the autonomous reconnaissance task given to the UAV in places where there is no ground control center, where the remote control is not possible, or as a result of the disconnection with the UAV, and successful results have been obtained. In addition, in our study, the manual control system and the fully autonomous system were discussed and applied to the UAV system. It has been ensured that the UAV system can successfully take off as fully autonomous control, reach the target, reconnaissance, and land successfully at the take-off site. In addition, the sensor information and camera images on the UAV were instantly transferred to the ground control station and the reconnaissance mission was completed through the autonomous fly process.
