Key Advantages of Drone Technology

In today's world, military use of drones has taken precedence. Drones have become an integral part of military forces around the world, serving as target decoys, combat missions, research and development, and supervision.

Fremont, CA: Drones, also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Miniature Pilotless Aircraft, or Flying Mini Robots, are quickly gaining popularity. Drones are still in their infancy in terms of mass adoption and usage, but they have already broken down rigid traditional barriers in industries that previously seemed impenetrable by similar technological innovations.

Drones have become central to the functions of different businesses and governmental organizations over the last few years, piercing through areas where certain industries were either unchanged or lagging behind. Drones are proving to be extremely beneficial in places where a man cannot reach or perform in a timely and efficient manner, from making quick deliveries during rush hour to scanning an unreachable military base.

Commercial Drone Technology

Commercial use of drones is gaining traction and has become the talk of the town, with multiple industries incorporating drones into their day-to-day operations. According to recent research, the market for commercial and civilian drones will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19 percent between 2015 and 2020, compared to a CAGR of 5 percent for military drones.

Military Drone Technology

In today's world, military use of drones has taken precedence. Drones have become an integral part of military forces around the world, serving as target decoys, combat missions, research and development, and supervision.

According to a recent report, military spending will continue to be the primary driver of drone spending in the coming years. Goldman estimates that global militaries will spend $70 billion on drones by 2020 and that these drones will be critical in resolving future conflicts and replacing human pilots.

Military spending also tends to come in larger increments, with a single US Predator drone costing around $4 million and total program spending estimated at nearly $2.4 billion.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) will continue to be used in a variety of military operations due to their ease of use in reducing losses and enabling the execution of high-profile and time-sensitive missions.
