In the beginning and until the last decade, the shared airspace around us hosted mainly commercial and Government’s air-borne assets.
With passing generations, our earth’s active civilian stakeholders’ activities have advanced from the sea and the land to the air.
Several generations of technological innovations have attempted to make human activities smarter including agriculture; municipal infrastructure monitoring; supply chain; public safety and security; and transportation.
