Drone Electronics

With a huge spurt in commercial applications, Drones and UAV Designs are finding increasing use in surveillance, intelligence, early warning, military, search and rescue, law enforcement, photography & videography, gaming, communication and logistics applications.


With the spurt in growth of sensors and sophisticated processor architecture, Drones and UAV Designs are gaining immense popularity. Drone Electronics use autonomous navigation to maneuver around and perform a number of missions and applications. The earliest use of Drones and UAVs dates back to 1849 when the Austrians used unmanned balloons loaded with explosives to attack the Italian city of Venice. With time the role and designs for Drones and UAVs has evolved. Drones and UAV Designs are now being equipped with various payloads to adapt them for different applications like surveillance, intelligence, early warning, military applications, search and rescue, law enforcement, photography & videography, gaming, communication and logistics among others.

Drone Electronics

Drones and UAVs are unmanned aircraft with no on-board crew or passengers in it. Unmanned aircrafts systems predominantly include the unmanned aerial vehicle, a remote controller, and a system of communications between them. With the advancement in technology, Drones Electronics are becoming more common and affordable. Our expertise in Drones and UAVs include real-time wireless HD streaming and the related control apps for Drones and UAV Designs.

Some of the advantage offered by these devices for the application mentioned above include: high-quality aerial imaging, precision and accessibility to difficult terrains, easily deployable and security.  The availability of Control Apps on generic devices like tablets and mobiles are one of the key technologies that have led to a sudden spurt in drone electronics for Drones and UAVs. Mistral offers custom designs for Drone Electronics for a wide range of Drones and UAVs.
