One of the most practical applications of drones is for security. Traditionally, perimeter surveillance and monitoring has always been an expensive and difficult task; however, drones provide a much simpler and cost-effective alternative. In addition, they operate quietly which means they won’t alert the subject of their presence. Drones are also proving incredibly useful in criminal investigations gathering data that is essential to determine how the crime occurred.
When it comes to increasing security through the use of drones, time in the air is the key. Even though drone battery-life constrains flight time, the Hextronics Global Station provides a battery swapping alternative to battery recharging that maximizes time in the air and makes round the clock surveillance/ flight by a single drone entirely possible.
