Where are the Drone Companies? The Drone Capitals of the World

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

If you are looking for a job, or hoping to get into the business, you may want to know where the most drone companies are located.  RS Components has put together a report  outlining the drone capitals of the world.  Using Crunchbase data, the report also looks at investment funding for those drone firms listed.
The Drone Capitals of the World
Despite China’s manufacturing dominance, according to the RS Components list, the U.S. has the most drone business headquarters.

That may be because a “drone company” means a lot more than just drone hardware, and can be hard to define. New software platforms for the drone industry are helping to bring unmanned aircraft mainstream.  The RS Components’ Drone Report finds that there are more than 450 drone headquarters in the U.S.  China is the number 2 country, but their research found only 50 drone companies there: Japan is a close third with 47 drone businesses.
Where the Funding Goes
from RS Components Drone Report

When it comes to funding, we found the RS Components data a little bit out of date – Skydio’s 100 million isn’t listed, so they aren’t on the top of the list.  SF-based Trulia is listed as the top funded company: but real-estate giant Trulia isn’t, strictly speaking, a drone company.  Startup Airware is still high on the list, and it’s true that they received significant funding in their time: but the company closed in 2018 and the assets were purchased by French firm Delair.

Turkey’s military campaign beyond its borders powered by homemade armed drones

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

In northern Syria, Turkish drones played a major part this year in a series of devastating attacks on Syrian armored forces that caught some military observers by surprise and helped bring a Syrian government offensive against rebel areas to a halt.At home, the drones have become a symbol of Turkish technological innovation and self-sufficiency, boosting national confidence amid a severe economic downturn and friction with some other NATO countries.James Jeffrey, a former U.S. ambassador to Turkey who served until recently as the Trump administration’s special representative for Syria, said Turkey’s foreign forays had “stymied” Russian military ambitions in places like Syria and Libya, and “that’s not a bad thing.” At the same time, he said, “Erdogan scares the hell out of most everyone in the Middle East.” The Turkish leader “is very unpredictable and very ambitious. He is moving into ­vacuums.”The rapid growth of Turkey’s drone industry has made it a competitor to long-established producers of unmanned aerial vehicles such as China and Israel. It has also provoked human rights concerns, stirred by reports of civilian casualties and the cross-border use of drones for the targeted killings of suspected militants. At least two foreign companies that supply components used in Turkish drones have announced in recent weeks that they are suspending sales to Turkey, saying their products were intended only for civilian use.The drones have provoked little controversy at home. They “are seen as a source of national pride and an …

Planning to travel with a drone? These are the drone regulations around the world

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Ok, so maybe you’re not planning to travel much for a little while just yet, but when the world eventually opens back up, people are going to. And some of you are going to want to take your shiny new drone with you to capture scenes of the places you visit from the air. But every country has its own unique and specific drone regulations that you may not be aware of.
So, the folks at Surfshark have put together a very handy list covering… well, pretty much the entire planet on where you can and can’t fly a drone. As Surfshark is a VPN company, naturally their focus is on the privacy issues surrounding drones around the world, but as privacy is a big factor in some drone regulations around the world, it’s a big deal.

Surfshark compiled drone legislation information from just about every country in the world to discover how each of them treats drones, particularly in regard to privacy. Some nations have an outright ban on drones completely while others are far more tolerant – and at least one country on every continent allows for unrestricted use.

Although many of the laws are more safety-focused rather than based on privacy issues, the safety restrictions do offer a level of privacy protection as a knock-on effect. And some of the laws are extremely strict. In Ghana, for example, if you’re caught flying a drone without a license, you could wind up with a 30 year …

Pakistan Buying Mini Drones From Turkey To Bolster Its Border Offensive Against India

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

To enhance surveillance on the border and fast-track weapons dispatches on the Indian side of Kashmir, Pakistan is roping in Turkey to provide it with high-tech mini UAVs, reports India’s Times Now channel recently reported.
According to the report, the Islamic nation is negotiating a deal to buy small drones from multiple Turkish companies to bolster its UAV fleet for deployment on the border with India.

The Indian security forces recently shot down a drone in the Kathua region of Jammu and Kashmir, with reports of more drone shootings in recent months by the Indian army. Pakistan is, therefore, hunting for more drones, especially mini-UAVs, to up its game against India.
With Turkish drones gaining worldwide popularity for their battle performances, as demonstrated in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and the wars in Syria and Libya, Pakistan is reportedly planning to profit from its closest ally’s autonomous assets. 
File Image: Mini UAV
The reports in the Indian media also talked about Pakistan conducting trials in early September this year for the S-250 mini UAV at its 506 UAV base workshop. Subsequently, more trials were held in the 12 Infantry Division area from 8th to 18th September.
The S-250 is considered an ideal drone for effective monitoring of a designated area at any time of the day, ensuring the security of assets, detecting acts of unauthorized activity in areas of responsibility. Despite its small size, it can fly for up to 3 hours, with a video transmission range up to 25 km, and a control …
