Water Cooler May 6, 2021: Assent of the Drones
Whether these unmanned aircraft are controlled by a remote or accessed via a smartphone app, they possess the capability of reaching the most remote areas with little to no manpower needed and require the least amount of effort, time, and energy. This is one of the biggest reasons why they are being adopted worldwide, especially by these four sectors: Military, Commercial, Personal, and Future Technology. The designs presented by the SURVICE Engineering team are becoming capable of transporting up to 500 lbs.
A few of the uses identified for drones:
Aerial photography for journalism and film
Express shipping and delivery
Gathering information or supplying essentials for disaster management
Thermal sensor drones for search and rescue operations
Geographic mapping of inaccessible terrain and locations
Building safety inspections
Precision crop monitoring
Unmanned cargo transport
Law enforcement and border control surveillance
Storm tracking and forecasting hurricanes and tornadoes
and, multiple military applications.
Development of hundreds of more uses of drones are underway due to the multiple investments pouring into this promising industry everyday. Estimated to be a $64 Billion industry by 2023, with millions of drones in use.
Not for you? at one time, every innovative technology faced that, maybe even the wheel.
Mark Butkiewicz, Applied Technology Operations Manager (ATO) for SURVICE Engineering, and now creating, here in Churchville, MD, one of the country’s most unique drone research facilities – SURVICE ATO at the Harford County Airport. It’s unique because it has its own, and rare to get, restricted flying zone for drones; it’s on the maps of the FAA and airlines maps, with this new facility supporting the development and testing of the latest in unmanned multirotor platforms and integration of custom payloads and autonomous technologies.
