Selected Non-Military Commercial Drone Applications

Proof Point Findings

  • Logistics – Delivering goods fast and efficiently, enabling shorter turnaround times and ability to reach previously inaccessible areas
  • Events Coverage – Democratizing sports, music, political, and other events coverage, leveraging drone mobility and proliferation of increasingly affordable drone units
  • Asset Management – Inspecting infrastructure and other assets remotely, accurately, and safely, eliminating need for high-risk human activities and enabling efficient asset management
  • Agriculture – Enabling data-driven farming with sensors and attachable modules, resulting in better situation responses as well as increased quantity and quality of agricultural yields
  • Environmental and Ecological Protection – Expanding natural resources and wildlife monitoring, exploiting lower cost of drones, wider coverage, increased mobility, and limited need for human intervention over traditional surveillance
  • Engineering and Construction – Improving construction project management, making projects safer and more efficient, driven by real-time data gathering, better resource allocation, and faster responses to issues and challenges
  • Transportation – Exploring point-to-point passenger air travel, potentially driving advances in next-generation, autonomous transportation systems
