Abstract Title

The Commercialization of UAS/Drones in the Delivery Sector/Services

Abstract

Over the past few years, Unmanned Aircrafts Systems (UAS) commonly known as drones have gained a lot of popularity. This popularity did not just bloom within the Aviation Industry but in the delivery/business sector as well. This research will cover the commercialization of drones within the delivery sector and how this new venture will affect persons living in the United States (U.S) with companies such as Amazon, United Parcel Service (UPS) and the famous pizza chain Dominos just to name a few, gearing up to add UAS/drones as part of their delivery services fleet. This research will focus on the city of Kent, Ohio which consists of a large population of college students, college faculty, and staff. This research was conducted by the distribution of questionnaires electronically through use of via email to persons who stay in the city limits of Kent, Ohio. The demographics of these residents were comprised of college students, college faculty and staff and residents. Two (2) different set of questionnaires were distributed, one that focused on the persons who worked within the aviation field and another that focus on a person who did not. Results showed that most persons agree that the process of delivering packages via drones would be faster, however, their privacy, security, and safety would be put at risk in the process.
