Omdia: Drone usage in public safety takes flight in 2022

Omdia expects that 2022 will see an increase in uptake of drone usage within public safety settings.

“Drone usage in public safety is still in very early days, particularly for beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) usage,” says Omedia. “In the UK, drones have been successfully used to tackle traditionally difficult to police actions including illegal hunting operations. Fire services have also been early adopters by, equipping drones with thermal sensors to help first responders detect heat signatures to locate people and fire hotspots at incidents.”

The sophistication of deployment is expected to continue to grow in 2022 as regulatory barriers for BVLOS steadily fall, and public safety organizations become more familiar with best practices for drone usage.
