A drone is the layman’s term for any type of unmanned aerial device. In the military, they are called UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems). In your backyard, they are a new perspective!
Used by the Air Force to explore situations where manned flight is considered too risky or difficult, they can stay up in the air for up to 17 hours at a time. But the everyday use by civilians is in the news every day. Real Estate companies use them to take a birds-eye view of properties, scientists use them for weather analysis, farmers for agricultural surveys, first responders for search and rescue.
Elara takes you on a tour of the difference uses of drones in this energetic animation with a voiceover.
