Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) startups are building systems for aerial intelligence and surveillance, as well as methods for take-off, landing, and collision avoidance.
From capturing aerial images to delivering supplies to providing internet connectivity, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS, also known as drones) are being used across industries.
In the defense sector, UAVs serve many roles, from delivering mission-critical payloads to monitoring regions to intercepting attacks. Governments also use drones for inspection, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) — or the collection and processing of intelligence for military operations.
With a wide array of use cases, organizations and investors are jumping on the opportunity.
