What is a drone?

  • A drone is an unmanned aircraft. Drones are more formally known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or unmanned aircraft systems. Essentially, a drone is a flying robot that can be remotely controlled or fly autonomously using software-controlled flight plans in its embedded systems that work in conjunction with onboard sensors and a global positioning system (GPS).
  • UAVs were most often associated with the military. They were initially used for anti-aircraft target practice, intelligence gathering and, more controversially, as weapons platforms. Drones are now also used in a range of civilian roles, including the following:
    • search and rescue
    • surveillance
    • traffic monitoring
    • weather monitoring
    • firefighting
    • personal use
    • drone-based photography
    • videography
    • agriculture
    • delivery services
  • Drones have two basic functions: flight mode and navigation.
