Remotely piloted aircraft systems (more commonly known as “drones”) is a burgeoning sector that stands to significantly transform many industries, including: telecommunications, agriculture, logistics, data privacy and security, manufacturing, construction and mining.
RPAs have been flying for decades. The transition from mainly military use has changed more than just the nomenclature away from “drones” to RPAs. Military uses for RPAs have paved the way for many more civilian and commercial applications that are limited only by the creativity and imagination of their designers – and by the applicable regulations. Greater development in the regulatory foundation will attract investment and provide the financial imperative to commercialize RPAs services and technology.
In December 2021, Dentons published a global comparative guide that examines and compares the laws and regulations, sanctions and liability, privacy and future prospects for regulatory and innovative developments for RPAs from 6 countries:
- European Union (France);
- Singapore; and
- United States.
You can access the Guide here. It explores some of the key industries and sectors that are ripe for the continued expansion of RPAS technology, including, agriculture and AgTech, construction and infrastructure, and mining.
