Drone Uses: The Awesome Benefits of Drone Technology
Drones are Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) which means typically without a pilot. These are controlled by remote control even from remote places and safely. Originally used for military applications like product delivery, surveillance, airdropping bombs, aerial attacks, policing, smuggling and are increasing in their use by expanding commercially, agriculturally, for recreation, aerial videography. The Long range drones below $500 reviews and news for 2020 is as follows.
Saudi faces a new challenge:
In early September it has been reported how Saudi Arabia has suffered great loss, as two major oil plants were attacked by an army of drones destroying the country’s 50% crude global supply. It is estimated that this attack of drones will decrease the country’s output by 5.7 million barrels daily. This resulted in a huge loss for one of the world’s top crude suppliers. It is reported that a rebel group neighboring Yemen took the responsibility and accepted the fact that they are responsible for the attack. Although, USA’s president Donald Trump assumes that the Muslim country Iran has a hand behind the attack, but Saudi declines about it. Drones are proving to provide security threats, being easy to handle and operate even from a remote distance.
Saudi Arabia’s new plan for vision 2030
King Abdul Aziz City of Science and Technology (KACST) revealed aerial vehicles that were developed in 2013. The UAV’s meaning Unmanned Aerial Vehicle that is commonly known as drones. This KACST which is situated in Dubai has been working on its development for a long period of time. These drones were made from composite materials such as carbon fibers, glass, resins, glass fiber and other fiber-rich compounds which are strong and also light-weight, saving the energy of drone and helping it stay aerial for a long period of time. They introduced two drones namely:
Saker1- It is a medium-altitude drone of long endurance, which provided amazingly good results in its preliminary test. As reported by the manager of KACST it can carry 150 kg and reach the altitude of 15,000 Ft. that is roughly 4.6 km. It also fired a missile and dropped a bomb with a range of 6km. It is equipped with (ISR) Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance and can stream live video of its view both in day and night due to its infrared radiation centers.
Saker4-It is a comparatively smaller model that can carry 3kg of the given surveillance system to an altitude of 11,000 Ft. that accounts for 3.k km.
The reason behind the development of drone news is mainly taken by the research institute as their vision 2030, to increase the employment opportunities for the Saudis. When it was first started it had only 15-20 employees and currently, more than 150 Saudi Engineers are employed and it hopes for expanding and providing more job opportunities for the unemployed citizens. Drones benefit the country economically and are in use for a very long time.
