Thanks to rapid advancements in the safety, intelligence, and user-friendliness of modern-day drones, government and commercial sectors are adopting drone technology into their operations more than ever to increase the efficiency of operations, cut down on expenses, and keep workers safe. Once solely known as a consumer-oriented hobby, the usage of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has expanded into a wide range of areas and has just begun to scratch the surface of its full potential. Today, more and more commercial and government sectors are taking advantage of this rapidly advancing technology, and tackling old problems in an all-new way. The potential uses drones have for various government applications at all levels is limitless. From performing regular safety inspections on infrastructure such as roads, bridges and power lines, to carrying out potentially life-saving public safety missions, the right drone can make all the difference in optimizing operations across a huge scope of different government sectors.
