Select Research Findings
Drones as a service for scientific research solutions will reach $8.1 billion by 2026
High potential industry verticals include construction, insurance, aerospace and real estate
Surveillance and mapping remain largest opportunities with maintenance and inspection rapidly gaining ground as high ROI solutions
Developing countries are fastest growing for many solutions due largely to substantial cost avoidance for expensive professional services
A drone (or unmanned aircraft) represents any aircraft that flies without the need for direct human intervention. Drones are available in different sizes and shapes and are developed to gather data primarily to meet a multitude of various tasks and applications. The absence of an onboard pilot means drones exist in a variety of sizes, from micro-drones held in the hand to large drones and airships that will ultimately rival the size and power of traditional piloted craft.
Drones range in size from a small drone that fits in the palm of one's hand to platforms that rival manned drones in wingspan, weight and power. Drones also vary significantly in design, including rotary-wing flight systems, such as quadcopters, fixed-wing drones, and lighter-than-air vessels such as tethered aerial devices. Drones require sophisticated software to adapt the data link between the drone and operator as well as streamline sharing of drone-gathered data with other stakeholders.
