Nova Systems presents at the Exploring an Unmanned Future Conference
- Feb 27, 2019
Nova Systems Dr Terrence Martin, Applied Research Lead – Autonomous Systems presented at the Exploring an Unmanned Future Conference being held in conjunction with the 2019 Avalon Airshow.
The conference aimed to promote and discuss the future of unmanned technologies, in particular drones, in Australia over the next five years.
Dr Martin discussed the challenges for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) based package delivery and Unmanned Aerial Management. He explored a key challenge for the civil UAV industry, with operations limited to visual line of sight flight and being restricted to not fly over people, a situation that prevents the realisation of commercial potential.
Nova Systems is using their extensive Flight Test & Evaluation, Systems of Systems Engineering and UAV experience & skills to examine the challenge of solving the risk problems for UAVs in the civil sector, mainly ensuring that UAV operations do not present a risk to people on the ground, in the air or critical infrastructure.
Nova Systems has supported the Australian military in ensuring that suitable mitigation’s are in place to prevent those risks being realised. This has seen us deliver Capability Assurance support for ScanEagle, Shadow, Heron, Land 129, Sea 129, Triton and Air 7003.
The array of autonomous vehicle technologies are expanding exponentially and UAVs provide avenues to deliver efficiencies in an array of markets ranging from agriculture to package delivery and even search and rescue.
Nova Systems is focused on leveraging the knowledge and experience gleaned through 19 years supporting Defence and blending it with the organisations expanding R&D capability to create unique world class UAV technologies. The company supports the UAV community indigenously supporting key UAV regulatory bodies like DASA, CASA, as well as internationally with JARUS, RTCA and NATO.
Nova Systems is involved in the Quantitative Methods group within JARUS, looking at data driven methods to support increased awareness of risk, expand the allowable operational areas and better define key UTM functions.
Visit us at the 2019 Avalon Airshow, Hall 2 Stand 2G19 for a demonstration of our developed efforts and to speak with Terry Martin.
