What are commercial UAVs? “UAV” stands for “unmanned aerial vehicle,” and commercial UAVs are commonly called drones. Like many common nicknames, though, the term “drones” doesn’t provide a complete description of this exciting technology. As a result, we prefer the term UAV to drones
UAVs have been used throughout the world for a number of years, notably in Australia, Canada, Brazil, and Japan. The United States, through the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), plans to announce new regulations to govern UAVs in 2015.
Now is a great time to prepare for the new US UAV regulations and legislation if you want to stay ahead of your competitors. Commercial UAVS or drones are used for a variety of business purposes, and you can learn more about Commercial UAVs use here. You’ll see that commercial UAVs are used for agriculture, film, advertising, real estate, search and rescue, science, and more.
What especially nice is that commercial UAVs have a low impact on the environment, creating very little pollution and noise. Commercial UAVs, in fact, help protect the environment by providing a less-intrusive alternative to traditional methods of exploration and research.
Commercial UAVs are in the news a great deal, and will continue to be as America gets closer to passing comprehensive UAV legislation and regulations. For the latest news about commercial UAVs, please go here.
