Drone software Market Dynamics:

How growth of Infrastructure Inspection affect the drone softtware companies?

Inspection is becoming an important part of the UAS industry. Drone pilots primarily use cameras to visually inspect the equipment, but photogrammetry software assists in the inspection. On a small scale, drones can help create a detailed map of a roof, and RGB and IR sensors can help to detect areas with leaks or poor insulation coverage. On a bigger scale, for example, the energy industry can use aerial maps to inspect solar farms, spotting problem spots in the solar panels with the aid of infrared imagery. The photogrammetry software uses node points to map the area, which is then developed into a 3D model using the software.

Until now, inspecting a vertically high industrial infrastructure, such as cell towers and wind turbines, and a large area spanning structures, such as pipelines, required transporting heavy equipment to remote areas as well as climbing towers for manned inspections, making the inspection tasks vulnerable to fatal injuries and liable for high insurance costs. Even with manual single drone operations, there are cases of inconsistencies in captured data. The following are the advantages of automated remote infrastructure inspection using drones:

  • Consistent data – Often with manually captured images, the processed data is incomplete, or worse, requires the whole process to be repeated. Some inspection applications do use a single drone for image capturing but those are manually operated, often resulting in inconsistencies. This can be avoided using an automated drone.
  • Less cost & increased efficiency – The deployment of automated drones offers minimal capital expenditures and increased operational efficiency. For instance, FlytBase, Inc. (India) provides commercial-off-the-shelf drones, enabling the customers to deploy drones at scale.
  • Time efficiency – Manual inspection is a lengthy process. It may take multiple weeks for an inspector to write the field reports, identify and purchase the necessary materials, and schedule repair appointments for the damaged infrastructure. All these can be avoided using automated drone software.

How is increasing use of drone a concern for cyber security?

The illegal usage of drones has become a squeezing security worry across the world. Cybercriminals and other activists are embracing drone innovation and growing newly refined manners to perpetrate wrongdoing and psychological oppression. The utilization of drones for hostile reconnaissance has increased. These drones may also be adapted to carry Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

Drones outfitted with unique hardware and software may likewise be utilized to introduce noxious malware on frameworks or upset framework’s activities, especially gadgets that are vulnerable to wireless protocols like Bluetooth.

To commit digital interruptions, cybercriminals may park drones on the top of a structure or other disguised area, including those that are in encased regions, generally beyond reach on foot and vehicle traffic which depicts many defense area establishments. Customary safety efforts including all actual insurance and biometric section frameworks are futile against drone-based network assaults

What opportunity can drone as airborne communication nodes bring in military missions?

Besides being sensor and shooter platforms, drones can also act as airborne communications nodes, similar to satellites, offering mobile network coverage for maneuvering military forces. This frees up manned systems to focus on higher-value missions while still providing a cost-effective way to maintain secure communications.

Drones will follow the paradigm change toward a network-centric warfare concept, seamlessly integrating into all three main areas of defense systems: sensor, shooter, and C2 network. By providing platforms for deploying sensors, weapons, and communications architecture, drones can enable the force commander to see first, understand first, act first, and finish decisively.

How stringent government regulations and lack of air traffic management challenges the drone software market?

Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) flight operations involve high-risk air travel, especially beyond the visual line of sight. Their operations over long distances increase the probability of accidents, property damage, and economic losses for companies. Hence, several countries have stringent regulations for the deployment of UAVs near airports, international borders, government buildings, no-fly zone areas, and temporary flight restriction areas due to a lack of air traffic management as well as safety and security issues. For instance, according to the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) of the US, the use of drones in civil airspace is one of the major challenges faced by the aviation industry of the country. Presently, drones are prohibited from flying in civil airspace except for certain companies that have received exemptions to conduct tests and carry out demonstration flights.

In addition to regulation, the UAS industry has a lack of trained professionals to operate drones due to a low number of training and certification institutes. Also, the complex terrains and extreme environmental conditions in various parts of the globe make it difficult to deploy air transportation services. These factors hamper the growth of the drone software market.

Based on Platform, the commercial segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on platform, the drone software market has been segmented into defense & government, commercial, and consumer. The drone software market has evolved over the recent years, with the increasing usage of drones in the commercial and defense sectors. The US Department of Defense currently operates more than 11,000+ drones in support of domestic training events and overseas contingency missions. These aircraft range in size, from the small RQ-11B Raven to the largest RQ/MQ-4 Global Hawk/Triton, which weighs more than 32,000 pounds.

Various companies in the drone software market are focusing on the development of industry-specific drones for use in agriculture, construction, and logistics. In the military sector, drones are increasingly being used in various tactics, including path spying, target detection, communication monitoring, and electronic disturbances. Companies such as Northrop Grumman (US) and General Atomics (US) provide military drones, along with the required software. Companies that provide software for commercial drones are expected to introduce innovative software for fleet management and autopilot functionalities.

Based on Architecture, the open source segment is projected to lead the drone software market from 2022 to 2027.

The drone software market has been segmented based on architecture into open source and closed source. Open-source software is available publicly and can be modified according to the requirements of the end user. Many drone users prefer this software because of the flexibility it offers. Drone building communities, such as Paparazzi UAV, Dronecode/PX4, and OpenDroneMap, offer open-source software, which allows the user to develop, customize, and repair drone functioning. This software is cheaper to build and generally does not require the user to depend on the company developing the software for any customizations. Closed source software is proprietary software that is available as a licensed subscription. End users get technical support from software developing companies. For instance, PrecisionHawk Inc. (US) developed closed source software— PrecisionAnalytics Agriculture —which is an aerial mapping and agronomy software that automatically processes all data to create 2D or 3D models, which can be analyzed with on-demand tools.

The North American region is projected to account for largest share of drone software during the forecast period.

The drone software market in the North American region is expected to witness substantial growth and register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of the drone software market in North America can be attributed to the increasing adoption of drones for commercial and defense applications. In recent years, drone software providers have been focusing on the development of software that are cost-effective and efficient, as, without the right software, one cannot manage a fleet of drones, perform automated BVLOS flights, or maintain the required flight data log for compliance purposes. n Canada, drones are used in diverse and risky environments to carry out atmospheric research such as weather and atmospheric gas sampling; emergency & disaster monitoring; cartography & mapping; agricultural spraying; and promotion & advertising. They are also used for oceanographic research; geophysical research; mineral exploration; imaging spectrometry; telecommunication relay platforms; reconnaissance activities; traffic & accident surveillance; search & rescue operations; aerial photography; weather reconnaissance; and flight research; along with surveying and inspecting remote power lines and pipelines.
