Drone pilots working on construction sites across the country are starting to discover the power of autonomy, finding that it helps them complete a broader range of tasks more efficiently and safely than traditional manual drones.
Drones have become valuable situational awareness tools for first responders completing emergency response, search and rescue, and a host of other missions.
With drones becoming increasingly automated, the level of involvement of humans in command has also been sufficiently reduced, so much so that they become Remote Operators instead of Remote Pilots.
Drones have quickly become crucial tools for troops on the ground to collect organic unit-level ISR, but legacy drones have historically been difficult to fly and easy to crash, reducing their effectiveness as an asset to troops on the ground.
Small UAS have become an irreplaceable tool to gather Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance for the military.
Drones have become valuable tools for giving police officers airborne eyes on active scenes, such as responding to emergencies, conducting search and rescue missions, and for collecting evidence from privileged vantage points.
Autonomous drones are helping utilities, engineering firms, and government agencies generate detailed inspections of hard-to-reach assets with higher precision, less pilot training requirements, and less ground risk than the incumbent manual solutions commonly used in the past.
The first chapter of the drone market story was written by hardware-centric vehicles. However, similar to what's happened in other technology disciplines, the next chapter is being written by software-driven solutions.
