Aerial surveying of the marine environment is not a new phenomenon with scientist, conservationists and researchers having long relied upon aerial images as a means of gathering data from the open oceans. However, advances in drone technology have meant that this data gathering can now be carried out faster, more regularly and far cheaper than when manned flights were required.  The quality of the imagery and footage, both transmitted in real time and stored for later review can also reduce the need for large observation teams and reveal hidden details that would be difficult to [...]

One of the main fields in which drones are being deployed at sea (as they are on land) is for carrying out of marine inspections. The Royal Navy is making use of these high portable cameras to inspect their vessels [...]
