Other interesting statistics -
204 (21%) agencies did some kind of missions for COVID-19
134 (14%) agencies also have some kind of manned aviation program
- Almost half the agencies (421) have a speaker payload on their drones.
2 in 3 organizations have drones with a thermal imaging payload in them (618)
- Agencies which identified themselves as federal, local or state government agencies overwhelmingly used DJI drones (91%)
More than half the number of organizations and agencies are still small scale (<10 pilots and <10 drones). The trend is increasing though, and it will be awhile before these organizations face challenges of scale and require sophisticated fleet management solutions.
The Mavic 2 Enterprise’s speaker add-on payload was a hit in the public safety segment. I was skeptical about its use when it was launched, but I’m now pleasantly surprised by its adoption.
