With the current days the use of these unmanned devices is everywhere and they can be used for everything. Invention of drones has really led to improvement in life in several ways. They have no human pilot boarded, and instead they are either controlled by a person on the ground or by a computerized program.
These slyness planes are becoming more familiar, not just for battle and military functions, but also for everything from wildlife and atmospheric research to disaster relief sports photography, plantation surveillance. These aircrafts are becoming the seeing and hearing aids of scientist experts by checking the ground for archaeological sites, signs of poaching and crop destruction, and even checking inside hurricanes to study the wild storms.
Contrasting to normal aircraft, drones are often liked for functions that are too risky for human’s intervention like wars and disasters. The drones mainly came mostly in military functions, although their use is becoming wider. In certain countries in Africa like Malawi and Zimbabwe drones are being to transport medicine to remote villages in the countries where there is poor infrastructure than can’t be used by either vehicles or even aircrafts so the best method is to use drones. In Rwanda drones are used to transport emergency blood supplies.
Drones are grouped into six functional divisions:
Object and attraction – They provide floor and aerial ordinance that activate an attack
Surveillance – providing war field knowledge
Fight – providing invasion for high-risk missions
Logistics – transportation of cargo
Research and development – promote research in drones
Civil and commercial functions – used in agriculture, aerial photography, data collection and even for leisure
Pros of using drones
They save lives
Operate on low costs compared to planes
Presence of low risks
Can remain airborne for long hours compared to aircrafts
They are more harmful to enemies as compared to normal planes
Easy to deploy
Good for gathering information
Cons of drones
They are considered as an invasion of privacy since that they are continuously surveilling hence privacy of a place may be leaked
Drones may make people to become deaden to war and killing in general.
May cause injuries and even loss of life
Loss of career by pilots
Cautions of flying drones
Flying drones comes with cautions to be observed like:
•Drones are suitable for persons who aren’t less than fourteen years old, who have skills of flying drones before because they may cause accidents and even death
•When using drones they should not be used under extreme weather conditions likestrong wind, rainy, fog weather among others
•When flying drones is advisable to select a wide open & legal space to fly so as to avoid obstruction, crush or persecution
•When flying drones, is advisable stay-away from high speed rotating components like propeller, brushless motor so as to avoid crush and damage of drones
•When using drones is advisable not to fly in the areas having high voltage lines, communication-base stations/towers, only to mention but just a few, so as to avoid the interference on remote control.
•Is advisable not to fly in prohibited areas like military bases, war spaces to avoid persecution and imprisonment
The future of drones
In the future drones will take from other drones. With the changing technology advanced drones will be invented for advanced functions like waiter drones to serve people in hotels, ambulance drones, drone sporting, and planting crops drones among others
