BVLOS Operations Report 2021

  • ID: 5567156
  • Report
  • March 2022
  • Region: Global
  • 84 Pages
  • Drone Industry Insights
The BVLOS Operations Report provides in-depth analysis of BVLOS technology, industry vertical applications, market sizes and international regulation work.

The report explains the various ways in which communication technology (e.g. 4G/5G, SATCOM) impacts BVLOS operations as well as potential pros and cons for each of these types of communication. It also covers risk-mitigation techniques (both strategic and technical) that drone operators can engage in to ensure safety while delivering results.

The BVLOS Operations report also dives into the potential of BVLOS application in 17 industry verticals. This analysis includes three types of BVLOS implementation: manual, on waypoints and fully automated. This allows business developers and drone pilots to intimately understand how feasible and how profitable it might be to integrate e.g. a fully-automated BVLOS into Construction or BVLOS on waypoints into Agriculture.

This 84-page BVLOS Operations Report contains a five-year forecast of BVLOS application broken down by urban vs rural market size as well as by region and unit sales. Finally, the report concludes with a chapter on regulatory efforts across the globe. From the FAA in the US to EASA in Europe as well as authorities in Australia, Japan, China and others, the report elaborates on the various efforts to establish national and international BVLOS standards.
