With a huge spurt in commercial applications, Drones and UAVs 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 UGVs are gaining immense popularity. Drone and UAVs use autonomous navigation to manoeuvre 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 of Drones and UAVs has evolved. Drones and UGVs present an innovative and sustainable solution for the various transportation and logistical challenges faced by the world currently. 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.
Drones and UAV Designs
Drones and UAVs can be equipped with various payloads to suit them for different applications like surveillance, intelligence, early warning, military applications, search and rescue, law enforcement, photography & videography, gaming, communication and logistics among others.
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 UAV designs.
