UAV Drones Are A Great Help In High-Risk Situations As a tool for both business and civilian use, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are quickly developing. Due to its reputation as a military asset, at this moment there is still a bit of hesitance to embrace the technology behind these pilot-less planes, but the fact of the matter is, there are several purposes for them far from the battlefield. Some are ingenious, some are a bit dangerous, but major money and time savings are benefits they both share. And yes, even in civilian life, a UAV drone can be quite a life-saver, as well. Here's a look at some of the surprising applications for drones in regular life. Drones for Search and Rescue Search and rescue missions (“SAR�, for short) can frequently be lengthy and expensive to conduct because of their unpredictable natures. 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 and no matter how treacherous or far-flung the terrain. Drones are fantastic for these missions, and their use in SAR scenarios is bound to grow quickly in coming years. There might be a scenario in which a hiker was wounded and is wandering and disoriented as an example. If a piloted helicopter search is organized, the weather might not cooperate or you may come across 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 armed with heat-sensing and image-capturing technology can be implemented and find the missing hiker. There are departments currently utilizing drones to resolve these situations with good results because believe it or not, this very situation can and does happen frequently. Real Estate Marketing Some people claim that a picture is worth a thousand words. When giving a sales pitch, it could be said that nowhere is the value of words greater, especially if the pitch is successful. You can imagine the premium put upon aerial photography, then, in terms of selling luxurious estates. To capture spectacular views from above choice properties, UAVs are currently being used by real estate marketing developers. Wide angles that capture stunning views can go a long way in closing a sale and when a property is located near a golf course, coastline, or mountains, the view is one of the best selling points. Without spending a lot of money on a small piloted aircraft that would also annoy neighbors, there is really no practical way to get such images. By comparison, considering how much money there is to be made, investing a few thousand in a drone presents quite the potential return. Storm Monitoring Drones You can't send a plane piloted by humans into the heart of a storm only for research purposes. Unconscionable is how this might be described. To collect data without any hazard to life or limb, a UAV drone, however, can drop right into the eye of hurricane. To do just that, NASA teamed up with the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) as well as other research bodies. UAV Direct

UAV Drones Are A Great Help In High-Risk Situations

These scientific research giants are spending tens of millions of dollars to conduct studies involving info-collecting drones that gather data on the evolution of killer storms. With a better understanding of hurricanes and tropical storms, the hope is that meteorologists may be better able to anticipate them, spread the news, and save lives and livelihoods. Drones may very well be secret to navigating a myriad of dangerous situations that would otherwise inconvenience people or put them in danger. These unmanned aircraft could be the solution that transforms everything from search and rescue missions to real estate or stormtracking endeavors. As a tool for both business and civilian use, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are quickly developing. Due to its reputation as ...
