      FAQs about Drone Application Report

      How does the Drone Application Report differ from other reports?

      The Drone Application Report provides an in-depth look into how drones are used throughout the world and across dozens of industries. Rather than providing a macro-level view of the drone industry by region, this report shows how drones solve everyday-business problems and provides concrete examples from companies all around the globe.

      What is a drone application?

      Drone applications are innovative ways in which drones are used to make business processes safer, more efficient and/or more profitable. By applying a drone in a unique way to solve a problem, the drone industry has grown exponentially and continues to expand into new industries.

      What is the difference between an application example and a case study?

      Application examples are generic combinations of a method (e.g. spraying or mapping) along with an industry (e.g. agriculture). Case studies are concrete examples of how a specific company used a drone for a particular task.

      Are the case studies focused in any particular region?

      Cases are taken from all around the globe including Brazil, Germany, Mexico, Malaysia, Trinidad and Tobago, Norway, Iceland, India, and dozens more.

      What is included in each case study?

      Each case study in the Drone Application Report includes date, location, operational characteristics (type of drone, autonomy level, payload, distance, flight time, etc), value-added metrics, as well as detailed problem and solution descriptions (in paragraph form) and further observations (as bullet points).
