How do drones work?

A typical unmanned aircraft is made of light composite materials to reduce weight and increase control-ability. This composite material strength allows military drones to cruise at extremely high altitudes.

UAV drones are equipped with different state of the art technology such as infrared cameras, GPS and laser (consumer, commercial and military UAV). Drones are controlled by remote ground control systems (GSC) and also referred to as a ground cockpit.

An unmanned aerial vehicle system has two parts, the drone itself and the control system.

The nose of the unmanned aerial vehicle is where all the sensors and navigational systems are present. The rest of the body is full of drone technology systems since there is no space required to accommodate humans.

The engineering materials used to build the drone are highly complex composites designed to absorb vibration, which decrease the sound produced. These materials are very light weight.

Drone Size:

There are various categories on the bases of size of Drone/UAV:-

  1. Nano: (less than equal to 250g)
  2. Micro: (greater than 250g and less than or equal to 2kg)
  3. Small: (greater than 2kg and less than or equal to 25kg
  4. Medium: (greater than 25kg and less than or equal to 150kg)
  5. Large: (greater than 150kg)

Working Principle of Drones & Types of Return to Home :

  1. Pilot Initiated: When Pilot Pressing the Button on Remote controller or Flying Application.
  2. Lower Battery level: Once Drone consume Battery up to certain level it initiated Return to Home automatically.
  3. Loss of Contact: When Drone loss the contact and Drone Return to Home Initiated automatically to its home point.
