Drones: Winging it like a bird
Birds are agile but now robots can emulate their movements. Using new insights on how pigeons control joints during flight by fanning their feathers in or out, agile drones could soon become a reality.

This kind of research paves the way for the manufacture of more agile aircraft with the ability to navigate better in rough air, forests and tight spaces such as between buildings, as birds do.
Will next generation agile drones fly as skillfully as birds in urban landscapes?
Spire Research and Consulting was established in 2000 to address a gap in the research and consulting industry in global emerging markets. Unlike most agencies that focus on traditional consumer research, our founders saw a profound need for holistic research projects.
These projects integrate traditional customer research with knowledge of the broader business eco-system; for instance, competitors, channels, legal and regulatory factors. They support strategic decision-making for market growth and entry. Our studies provide indispensable tools for creating business plans, setting sales quotas, quantifying budgets and investment as well as making product launch decisions.
Spire exists to undertake such projects with distinction.
