Drones Creating Fire? You have to see it to believe it. Check out this video of a drone burning rubbish off power lines by the trained professionals of a Power Company in China. #donottrythisathome

According to a 2013 article from nationalgeographic.com, only government agencies, some public universities, and a handful of private companies hold the few hundred FAA permits to fly private drones.  But the Federal Aviation Administration was to open skies to commercial drones in 2015 and expects to see perhaps 7,500 in the air by 2020—most of which will likely be small machines resembling model airplanes.  The most common uses for drones include:

A. Hurricane Hunting: Drones can charge into the heart of a storm without risking human life and limb.  Drones can stay in stormy areas that manned planes can’t, performing valuable surveillance.

B. 3-D mapping: Drones survey landscapes with thousands of digital images that can be stitched together into 3-D maps. Military and other government satellites produce similar maps, but emerging UAV technology can put that capability in the hands of small companies and individuals, to be customized and used for a seemingly endless variety of applications.

C. Protect Wildlife: Drones monitor wildlife populations and map roads and wetlands for land management purposes.  Aerial surveys can identify animals’ distribution and density when the ground-based efforts are slow and costly in the thick forests.

D. Treating Farmland: Drones can treat an acre of steep farmland in five minutes in area that’s very difficult or even impossible to reach with a tractor.,

E. Search and Rescue:  When a ground search and an air ambulance helicopter with night-vision gear cannot find a victim,a drone with heat-sensing equipment is the next best option.

It’s time to look to the skies!  #whatwilltheythinkofnext
