  1. 1. Presentation UAV 000 Summit RPAS in Emergence Response Attainment & Sustainment Of UAS Technology
  2. 2. Focus of this presentation  Capability Selection  Capability Development  Operational Sustainment
  3. 3. QLD Rural Fire Trials 2010
  4. 4.  Real-time appreciation  Rapid decision making  Accurate resource allocation  Task Prioritisation  OH&S support  Tactical view anywhere via www
  5. 5. 3 D Modelling of terrain and other assets
  6. 6. The value of RPAS is undisputed, so how to access it?
  7. 7. UAS Technology Support Human Organization Remote Crew Regulations Operations Maintenance Operational Readiness
  8. 8. The National Airspace < 400ft Operations > 500ft Operations 100ft Buffer/transition zone (Lower Barriers to Entry) (Higher Barriers to Entry)
  9. 9. Tiered Business Approach  Tier 1 – Organic Tactical ‘tool box’ approach  Tier 2 – Service Agreements with Govt/ASX  Tier 3&4 – Federal Agencies (ADF/BPC) • Tier 1 UAS are revolutionary (new capability tool) • Tier 2+ UAS are evolutionary (supplement manned operations) N.B: Access to any tier will be limited by cost & difficulty of employment
  10. 10. Majority by UOC numbers 99%  < 400ft systems (Tier 1 UAS)  < 7kg electric fixed and or multi-rotor  Visual line of sight (VLOS)  Scope for BVLOS, night & populous ops  Lower cost to purchase, comply & employ
  11. 11. Business Model Options  Organic developed capability  Purchased 3rd Party Services  Mixed – organic & 3rd party services* * Usually for overflow or for beyond routine tasks
  12. 12. Ground Control Station Control & data-link Sensors (day / night) Platform Type Real time or Stills Data Information
  13. 13. UAS Technology Support Matching the technology to the task  Fixed wing, Multi-rotor; or Both?  Sensors?  Endurance?  Level of support required?
  14. 14. Human Organization Remote Crew
  15. 15.  Educating the organization – Planning, managing and sustaining  Remote Crew Training – Pilots, sensor payload, safety, etc. Phase 1 – Crew Screening •Appropriate to role •Simulation & classroom activities •Aptitude testing Phase 2 – Basic RPAS Training •BA, radio & air legislation •Simulator training •Flight operations on ab initio RPAS trainer all modes Phase 3 – Type Conversion & Advanced Training •Type certification •Advanced Endorsements
  16. 16. 17 No Previous CASA Qualifications RPAS Certificate RPAS Prac Flight syllabus RPAS Theory & Sim Approved OEM Type Training Manned Aircraft CASA Issued PPL Controllers Certificate = Pilot Preveilages
  17. 17. Regulations Operations Maintenance Compliant Safe, Efficient, Reliable & Effective Achieving and Maintaining approved and effective company UAS operations: a) Safety of all stakeholders & equipment b) Appropriate Organisational Structure c) Effective Flight Operations d) Efficient and reliable Systems CASR 101 & ACs
  18. 18. Unmanned Operator’s Certificate (UOC) – CASA Issued Company Operations Manual Parts A-E Flight Operations Manual(s) Maintenance Manual (s) Admin Accounting Jobs Sales Marketing CEO & Chief Controller/Remote Pilot
  19. 19. COMPANY OPERATIONS DOCUMENTATION Enables Issuing of CASA Permissions (UOC) Part A Part B Part C Part D CEO & Chief Remote Pilot/Controller
  20. 20. FLIGHT DOCUMENTATION Enables Safe Operations Type Flight Manual(s) & Checklists Pilot Log Book Maintenance Release & Battery Logs RPA Log Book Chief Remote Pilot/Controller
  21. 21. MAINTENANCE DOCUMENTATION Enables a Maintenance Release Type Technical Manual Field Log Book Maintenance Work Cards UA Log Book Maintenance Controller
  22. 22. UAS Technology Support Human Organization Remote Crew Regulations Operations Maintenance Safe Effective Routine
