The use of drones is exploding. More and more use cases are being developed. Drones now do medicine deliveries, map farms and cities, spray crops, inspect Cell phone towers and perform many additional functions.
As per research conducted by the Commercial Unmanned Aviation Association of South Africa (CUAASA) which revealed more than 40 000 jobs will be created within the industry over a ten-year period.
The Drone sector is burgeoning with rapid development in the breadth and capability of drones. Drones range from multi rotor through drone aircraft to vertical take-off and landing drones. Each has a set of applications and requires a skill set to operate effectively. Flying the drone is only part of creating value for a client or business. The data collected by the drone needs to be uploaded, processed, analysed and presented.
