Taking to the skies soon: Public service drones

SINGAPORE — From maritime search and rescue operations to combating dengue, drones will be increasingly deployed by public agencies to improve their operations.

Currently, more than two dozen uses of such devices are undergoing conceptualisation and proof-of-concept (POC) trials, said the Ministry of Transport (MOT), which is leading the inter-agency Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) committee facilitating the trials.

The ministry held a media briefing today (Feb 4) to showcase the use of drones to enhance some public services. It also announced that a tender will be called at the end of the month to invite commercial vendors to bid for a master contract for UAS services.

This arrangement would enable better economies of scale to be achieved from the public agencies’ collective demand for such services, said the MOT
