1.Drones

The word drone is the name given to a male bee in a bee hive. There exist drones which are similar in shape to these bees and hence bees have acted as a huge inspiration for designing these drones. Over the years the design of these drones has evolved owing to the field of their use. Drone Technology have been classified depending on their use, design and the range(altitude) in which they fly.

Engine Powered Drones

These drones are powered by small kerosene or diesel powered engines which help them to fly opposing to a conventional drone flying technology by electric motors, in terms of efficiency these drones are superior compared to normal drones. Sometimes even jet engines are used to power these drones in certain drones used for military purposes.

Development is done according to their areas of application such as commercial, research and also for military purposes. Insect sized drones are expected to replace other drones in all areas in the near future.

They can be as small as 5 centimeters. Development is done according to their areas of application such as commercial, research and also for military purposes. Insect sized drones are expected to replace other drones in all areas in the near future.

2. The Design of Drones:

Drone technology depends on how efficient these drones are in carrying out their designated mission. The key to efficient operation depends on state of the art design and also on the materials which are used for manufacturing these drones.

Manned and unmanned drones differ in terms of designs, for example, unmanned drone does not require certain features to be included in the body of these drones such as cockpits, life support and environmental control systems etc., these drones are also designed to carry out their designated operation efficiently as well as by utilizing minimal amount of resources used.

Utilization and Optimization of Drone Technology

The popularity of drones is increasing over the days and will continue to gain more of an importance in the near future due to the diversification in the application of these drones. The big question is why are these machines gaining fame among others.

The answer is in their features as they can be used with ease and are of course fun to play with. Let us discuss in detail about the application of these drones.

Search and Use:

Drones are used for rescue operations in terms of any catastrophic disaster to find and locate humans/objects which cannot be located with the naked eye. They are also used to detect a number of certain gasses in the air in times of any gas leak or air contaminations.

Inspection:

Many drones can be used for checking the long pipelines which carry gas and oil (sometimes over long distances), power lines where any defect on them can also be corrected by these drones.

Aerial Photography and Video:

Many drones are used for aerial photographic purposes and also for recording certain events wh ich cannot be efficiently captured by normal camera tools.
Drones are also used for other purposes such as in engineering, maritime, constructions, hobby, meteorology, education, marketing and more.

The increase in demand for a better and efficient drone has led to the utilization of these drones in various fields. The effectivity of the drone technology is leading to the creation of newer areas of application for these drones.

Vishwajeeth J.K
My name is vishwajeethJ.K. I am from the city of Chennai, home to many great writers, (I am aspiring to become one of them ).I am an aeronautical engineering graduate. the reason for choosing this course is my passion towards machines that fly. Towards the course of my study, I learned few major concepts behind aircraft. Apart from things that fly, I like to read books and write stuff. I travel a lot and love to meet new people and learn their way of life. Anything and everything that inspires me and gives me knowledge instantly become my friend hence, I have a lot of friends. Sometimes I act myself and that becomes unlikeable for people, I am otherwise friendly and kind towards everything that is living or not living. I am a dreamer and I have dreams which are not possible in reality. it is awesome that you have spent 2 minutes reading about me in this bio, there is more about me but, I like suspense
