Over the past few years, drones have become very functional to all sorts of businesses and governmental organizations. From quick deliveries at rush hour to scanning an unreachable military base, drones are proving to be very beneficial in places where we cannot reach, or if they can perform the task faster and more efficient. Along with capturing some videos flying over landscapes drones are increasing work efficiency and productivity, decreasing workload and production costs, improving accuracy, refining service and customer relations, and resolving security issues on a vast scale. Drone technology across industries went from the fad stage to the mega-trend stage fairly quickly as more and more businesses started to realize its potential.
What we saw a lot of in 2017 was Drones being used to identify the location of hurricane survivors that needed to be rescued, to assess damage, to evaluate routes toward saving those caught up in flood conditions, and to collect vital information on the status of places that would otherwise be impossible to reach. Drones can be used for all types of natural disasters to aid and provide information.

Zipline plans to send blood and starting to use a wide range of medical products, including emergency rabies vaccines; drugs to treat HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria; contraceptives; and diagnostic test kits.
The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has been working to stop poachers on the open oceans, and they’ve been using drones to help them do it.
Drones can fly over the sight of a fire that is almost out to identify smoldering hot spots that might not be visible to the naked eye. Aerial thermography can also help to quickly find potential fire victims who need immediate medical attention.
