The industry drones are increasingly used in agricultural fertilization, emergency rescue, power patrol and border monitoring. Various types of drones play an important role in improving work efficiency, reducing labor cost and operation difficulty.
The large-scale use of drones puts forward higher requirements for low-altitude air traffic management. Standard airspace management information should meet the same standards as airlines and general aviation pilots. Specific information includes airport information, controlled airspace, restricted airspace, temporary flight restrictions, and related information such as government and military facilities, prisons, important infrastructure and other special areas. Some information does not involve flight safety, but also belong to flight sensitive areas.
Drone aerial seeding refers to the use of drone for agriculture, forestry, and animal husbandry seeding, fertilizer spraying and fishery feed delivery, to improve production efficiency, reduce manual labor, and cut production costs.
Drones will become an important means of asymmetric warfare because of its low cost and great destructiveness. A drone carrying explosives, biological poisons and radioactive materials can easily break through the air defense network, causing great harm to the target. It is becoming more and more urgent to protect key civilian and military facilities and major event sites from drone photography, threatening item delivery and even direct attack. Small drones are small in size, and are not easy to be detected as they have no obvious characteristics.
Technological advances have promoted the adaptability of terrorist attack strategies and tactics. Based on intelligent and non-contact strategies, civil drones may become an important means of new terrorist attacks and asymmetric warfare. As a mobile platform, information platform and armed platform for terrorist attacks, the civil drone will develop into a high-level threat if effective measures are not taken from the aspects of supervision and prevention, target detection, regional rejection, interruption and destruction.
Illegal use of drones may pose a serious threat to civilian and military facilities. With the rapid development of drone detection and interception technology, the combination of multiple technologies will become the main trend.
