Technology around drones continues to move faster than Moore’s Law. The imagery drones can capture, payloads they can carry, and the diverse missions they can fly are based on the technological advancement in the drone field. Airframes, controllers, navigation, batteries, imagery sensors, and software are all advancing at an almost feverish pace. Where this is exciting, it is also a challenge for utilities to select the right platform and sensors for the missions their drone or drones need to fly.
