Hurricane-Proof Drones Are the Storm Chasers of Tomorrow

Current hurricane-hunting planes gather data on winds, pressure, precipitation and temperature, but they can’t fly below about 5,000 feet because of extreme turbulence. Dropsondes, small cylindrical sensors that can be dropped from a plane, only provide a few minutes’ worth of data before falling into the ocean. A new unmanned aerial vehicle, however, will go

UAV Technology and Trends: “UAVs have come of age”

UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) are taking over the surveying industry thanks to their ever-improving sensors and the fact that they are getting lighter and can therefore remain in the air for longer. They complete surveying and inspection tasks that would otherwise be difficult to tackle and do so with impressive cost-efficiency. UAV trends and technology

Preparing For an Exploding Technology

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), already popular with hobbyists, are gaining the interest of map-making professionals. Perhaps you’ve played with a remotely controlled model plane or multi-rotor-copter. Within a year, Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles (also known as UAVs) – drones used by military services – will integrate into U.S. airspace for civilian, governmental, commercial, and scientific purposes.
