The SORA (Specific Operations Risk Assessment) is a method for assessing risks specific to drone operations, while the PDRA (Preliminary Risk Assessment) is a preliminary assessment conducted before a specific drone operation. Both are crucial for ensuring the safety of drone operations by identifying potential risks and implementing appropriate preventive measures to ensure the safety of people and property.

The SORA: Detailed Risk Analysis for Drone Operations

The SORA (Specific Operations Risk Assessment) offers a detailed approach to evaluating risks specific to drone operations. By analyzing variables such as environment, weather conditions, and technology used, it enables operators to understand and manage potential risks proactively.

The PDRA: Preliminary Risk Assessment for Drone Missions

The PDRA (Preliminary Risk Assessment) complements the SORA by providing a preliminary risk assessment before each drone mission. This rapid assessment allows operators to make informed decisions and implement appropriate security measures to ensure mission success.

Holistic Approach: Integrating SORA and PDRA for Comprehensive Risk Management

By combining the SORA and PDRA, drone operators can adopt a holistic approach to risk management. This integrated approach ensures a comprehensive risk assessment at every stage of the operation, thereby ensuring the safety of people, property, and the environment during drone missions.
