Use Of Drones by Public Service Agencies Growing at a Staggering Pace

Palm Beach, FL – November 30, 2022 – News Commentary – Many public safety agencies are starting their own unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) programs. The (ones) tailored specifically for police can fit in any interceptor and allow rapid deployment for any situation, giving law enforcement teams wider situational awareness, allowing them to formulate an appropriate response in any situation. Moreover, whether in response to a disaster earthquake event, a missing hiker, or a boater in distress, the capabilities of a remote-controlled drones to search large areas quickly and efficiently with high definition video and thermal video regardless of ground conditions make search and rescue operations much more efficient and effective. Hence, adoption of such drones is boosting the growth of the public safety drones market.  A recent article in industry observer, Commercial UAV News said: “Public safety agencies, by and large, have recognized that the capabilities offered by small, unmanned aircraft systems provide unique advantages to how they conduct their operations, and the use of drones in public safety will continue to grow,” Christopher Todd, Executive Director of the Airborne International Response Team (AIRT), told Commercial UAV News.  Last year, DRONERESPONDERS, an AIRT program that trains and supports public safety personal who use UAVs, introduced a comprehensive directory of public safety agencies that use drones in emergency response with the goal furthering coordination, training, and support. The dashboard contains more than 1,000 organizations, teams, first responders, law enforcement officers, firefighters, and pilots from more than 20 countries… Given current trends, the size of that list is bound to grow.”  Active companies in the markets this week include: Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO) (CSE: DPRO), Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL), Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX), NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA), Ambarella, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMBA).


Commercial UAV News continued: “Todd attributed the recent growth of the use of drones in public safety to functionality and cost. “Historically, less than 1% of public safety agencies could access manned aviation resources like helicopters and aircraft. They’re just too expensive,” he explained. “In recent years, though, many agencies have seen the value of reliable, low-cost, high-quality, small drones, and it’s changing the way many agencies operate.”  A report from Allied Market Research added: “Public safety drones have become advanced and are equipped with high-quality video cameras. These drones are the cost-effective alternative to traditional helicopters. For over a decade, manufacturing companies have specialized in cost-effective thermal drone solutions for First responders. In addition, these drones understand their use cases and unique procurement process making us the smart choice for enterprise solutions. Hence, these drones (have) been adopted by many agencies across the world specially in developed economies, which is expected to contribute toward the growth of the market (through 2027).”
