The commercial prospects for uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS), also referred to as unmanned aircraft systems, are currently limited by persistent issues around safety. Cracking the conundrum of regulatory obstacles – related to societal acceptance – offers the keys to the future.
We believe that the answer lies in a new generation of automated, collaborative uncrewed aerial vehicle (UAV) fleets with pilots on the loop, not in the loop. In fact, we are sure of it – and we’ve invested in a live working demo to support the thesis.
This Innovation Briefing reveals details of that drone fleet demonstration, exciting prospective commercial use cases and the business opportunities these present for ambitious operators.
The paper focuses on three take-aways:
A ground-breaking application of autonomy is ready to accelerate the public acceptance and commercial viability of UAVs, transforming safety, reliability and trust
Advances in drone AI have unlocked a new paradigm of collaborative autonomous UAVs that are able to share tasks and respond to dynamic environments through a dynamic hierarchy of command and control
The unprecedented levels of teamwork will elevate current commercial applications, enable new levels of drone navigation, and unleash a new generation of novel use cases offering significant business advantage
