UAV Drones Come In Handy In Dangerous Situations As a tool for both business and civilian use, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are rapidly evolving. While at this time there may still be a little hesitance to embrace the technology because of its reputation as a military asset, the fact is that there are several purposes for these little pilot-less planes far from the battlefield. Some are unsafe, some are just ingenious, but they all share the benefit of being major time and money-savers. And yes, even in civilian life, a UAV drone can be a lifesaver, also. There are a few interesting applications for drones in regular life and here are just a few of them. Drones for Search and Rescue It can be a prolonged and expensive process to carry out SAR missions, or search and rescue for short, because of their unpredictable nature. No matter how dangerous or far-flung the terrain, authorities are duty-bound to put their best efforts into finding lost people, regardless of the dangers these missions present to the would-be rescuers themselves. Drones are fantastic for these missions, and their use in SAR instances is bound to grow swiftly in coming years. There may be a situation in which a hiker was hurt and is wandering and disoriented for example. If a piloted helicopter search is organized, the weather might not cooperate or you may encounter an impassable muddy mountain road. Time is critical as temperatures may dip below freezing or below zero come nightfall. Without risk to other people or equipment, A UAV drone outfitted with heat-sensing and image-capturing technology can be implemented and find the missing hiker. There are departments currently using drones to resolve these situations with good results because believe it or not, this very situation can and does happen often. Real Estate Marketing Some people say that a picture is worth a thousand words. It could also be said that nowhere is the value of words higher than in a sales pitch, should the pitch prove successful. When it comes to selling high end estates, you can imagine the premium put upon aerial photography. UAVs are currently being used by real estate marketing developers to get amazing views from above choice properties. When a property is located near a golf course, coastline, or mountains, the view is one of the most effective selling points, and photos from wide angles that capture it all could go a long way in closing a sale. Without spending a lot of money on a small piloted aircraft that would also annoy neighbors, there is really no simple way to capture such images. Spending a few thousand in a drone offers quite the potential return but when you consider how much money there is to be made, this is nothing. Drones for Tracking Deadly Storms Sending a plane piloted by humans into the heart of a storm only for research purposes is something you can't do. Unconscionable is how this may be described. A UAV drone, however, can plunge directly into the eye of hurricane for the sake of gathering information without any risk to life or limb. To do exactly that, NASA partnered with the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) as well as other research bodies. UAV Direct

Tens of millions of dollars are being paid by these scientific research giants to carry out studies involving info-collecting drones that gather data on the evolution of killer storms. The hope is that by better understanding hurricanes and tropical storms, meteorologists may be better able to forecast them, spread the news, and save lives and livelihoods. Drones could be the secret to navigating all sorts of risky situations that would otherwise inconvenience people or put them in danger. These unmanned aircraft could possibly be the solution that changes everything from search and rescue missions to real estate or storm-tracking ventures. UAV drone aerial photography is definitely an option for consideration if you are looking into different ways to enhance your film.
