Drones are mechanical operating remote deployment encapsulated technological constructions. They can be built to function in the air, on land, or in water. Ariel drones are known as Unmanned Areia Vehicles (UAVs), Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPASs), and Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (SUASs). Land and water drones might also carry various terminologies but the commonalities are simple, drones function without direct personal involvement from humans. Some drones are pre-programmed for their “missions” and are not even directed while active. Drone use in the Energy sector has become a forward technology application creating possibilities in maintenance, surveillance, and security. Each of these applications integrates with the Smart Grid and improves Energy systems communication integrations. When people hear the term “drone” they often think of military equipment and battleground skirmishes. The wide use of drones in other private and public arenas is often forgotten but has an indelible impact on modern industry and communications.
