Abstract:Bachelor thesis research about maturity for application of drone technology in the security surveillance sector. Through the maturity assessment, the implications will be addressed. These implications hold back the development of drone technology within the security surveillance sector for the future. This research is academically relevant, because it determines the maturity for drone application in the security surveillance sector on five different dimensions. These are: technical, business, ethical, legal and social. This research will be practically relevant for security surveillance businesses that want to evaluate at what level they are when talking about implementing drones within their company. This research determined the maturity of drone technology in the security surveillance sector through: a literature study, a UAV readiness Quick Scan tool provided by Space 53 and an expert interview. Through this research, it can be determined that the security surveillance sector is not mature enough to use drones within their business operations. Even though security surveillance drones are technically ready, businesses are still scared to use these drones. They are afraid for all the issues that could arise through the ethical, legal and social dimension. To fully determine the maturity of drone development in the security surveillance sector, further research has to be done.
