drones and drone technology in Prescott

Prescott Drone Solutions can enhance your Prescott business with drone inspections, marketing and surveillance.

As technology rapidly progresses, so do the capabilities of aerial drones, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). Every year, more advanced UAVs are being developed. This means that our definition of what a drone is and what it can do is continually changing. When we refer to the technology of drones, we mean the aerodynamics, materials, circuits, and software. It is not just one aspect of UAV technology that is evolving. Prescott Drone Solutions is educating Prescott businesses on the newest innovations in drone technology.

How Do They Work?
Advanced UAVs are manufactured using light-weight composite materials. This lowers the weight and improves maneuverability. The composite materials are extremely complex and are designed to absorb vibrations, thereby decreasing noise levels when flying. The strength of the composites is ideal for military drones that operate at very high altitudes.

These unmanned aircraft are often equipped with GPS, laser, and infrared cameras. Sensors and navigation systems are housed in the nose of the drones while the fuselage houses the different technologies. Because there is no need to provide space for humans, the fuselage is typically filled completely.

Drone Styles
Drones come in many different shapes and sizes. The largest of the UAVs used a fixed-wing design. This design is ideal for flying long distances, and it is used for military purposes, geographical surveying, and even combating wildlife poaching.

VTOL Drones
In addition to the fixed-wing unmanned vehicles, there are also Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) drones. This type of drone takes off, flies, hovers, and lands vertically. You may recognize a VTOL by the four propellers mounted on top, but some designs may have more or fewer propellers. The motors on quadcopters typically work in pairs with two propellers spinning clockwise and the other two rotating counter-clockwise.

One of the latest technologies and most important features for commercial use is the dual Global Navigational Satellite Systems (GNSS) like GPS and GLONASS. Accurate navigation is essential when using UAVs for 3D mapping, surveying, and search and rescue.
