Frequently Asked Questions

New technology brings with it new questions and we want to help everyone understand why drones are the future by answering these questions and how they can be a part of the answers too. Of course, wanting to know beyond what we have shown here is a conversation we look forward to having, do get in touch with us at [email protected] to know more!
Note: We do not sell or service drones, to know why, read on

About Drones

A drone or an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is essentially an aircraft without a pilot on board. Bear in mind that drones can range from ones that can fit in your pocket to ones that weigh several tonnes, these drones can are used for purposes that range from surveillance and weather research to streaming Internet services and delivering essentials.

Drones are here to stay and will only proliferate more (please refer the end of the section to find out how) From the entire range of drones that exist, the ones that will change the way we live are the ones used for three main purposes

  • Removing people from danger

    Inspectors of assets like powerlines, cell towers and pipelines, rescue workers and even law enforcement can view and understand their point of interest without being placed in danger.

  • Enhancing what we can see

    Planning large scale projects like highways, or keeping track of how much mining takes place are some of the things that drones can help us understand better by helping us see the bigger picture without losing out on all the finer details.

  • Getting things done faster

    Drones do not have to worry about navigating the obstacles on the ground, because they are removed from the terrain they are observing they are very efficient at collecting information over large distances.

Drones, at the end of the day, are very effective and intelligent data gathering tools. To understand where the industry is heading and how it will shape up, you can read about it through helpful links listed below.

Drones and Solutions

Since drones are extremely good at collecting data in terms of cost and time, the natural question that follows is ...

Beyond just observing the world from an elevated point of view, technology can be used to channel that data and perspective through processing software and algorithms to turn visual data into numbers and decision points about how healthy an asset is or how fast a project is evolving.

Turning drone data into information and insights that can be used to make decisions are known as Drone Solutions and this is a domain that is rapidly evolving all over the world to help everyone from enterprises to farmers and governments.

Our own solution built from the ground up has helped connect farmers and evolved better business practices

Drones and You

There was a time when cell phones were not as ubiquitous as they are today, now more than a billion smartphone users in the world populate the world constantly connecting every corner of the Earth at every moment. Drones are heading in the same direction, soon there will be a day when the cost of owning a personalised smartphone/computer in the sky will be affordable enough for the average smartphone user today.

Keeping the future in mind it helps to know that flying and owning drones comes with enormous responsibility and employment opportunities.

Nice try, but one should learn where they are flying their drone or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle and learn the rules, laws and requirements of their country before even considering getting a drone.

Visit the drone regulations website to understand how your country regulates drones.

India is yet to finalise drone regulations and permissions are granted on a case to case basis for predominantly government organisations, private companies working on government projects or research institutes. However, the Indian Government has been working towards establishing a policy wherein security concerns and potential applications for the good can be balanced.

Do read upon the latest draft regulations and how the government plans to implement them.

Drones are going to change the way industries like infrastructure and mining make decisions and with the forthcoming demand comes even greater demand for skilled pilots, data analysts and even business acumen to marry expectations and technology. You could either catch the updraft early or watch the drones take off into the future, if you are of the former do get in touch with us to be a part of the future!
