Based on the last year’s business growth, year 2020 was predicted with lot more hopes and was forecasted with a high demand of aircrafts. The rapid technological growth was expected to come up with many more latest innovations to bring revolution in the industry. Since, the pandemic hit the globe very immensely and dragged all the predictions below the line. Now, aerospace and defense industry requires a potential strategy that can cover up all the new challenges occurred due to pandemic and again thrive over the industry with new ray of hopes.

These small aircrafts are gaining a rapid popularity among various industries but the mass adoption of this technology is still a question mark for several industries. On the other hand there are few industries which were considered as impenetrable for such technologies are now adopting the drone technology at a huge scale for distinct purposes, and one of those sectors are defense. The drones have made its impeccable space in those industries which were stagnant for other technologies. Right from the delivery at the peak and busy hours till penetrating in a far military camp, drone has proven its expertise and efficiency. It has a potential to increase the work efficiency and drag the workload down by automating certain tasks.
