UAS Technology an

Emerging Strategic Capability in

Driving Australian Productivity

By Mark Xavier

(Group MD/CEO)


  • Focus of this Presentation

  • UAS/UAV Technology (Overview)

  • Productivity Benefits (How, What & Where)

  • A Market Disruptor (Evolutionary vs Revolutionary)

  • Business Strategy (Options – buy, lease or rent)

  • Capability Sustainment (Challenges)

Ground Control Station


  • Applications - Actionable Product

  • HD streaming video – Day/Night;

  • HD stills – Colour, Hyper/multi spec, 3D models;

  • Sensing – weather/climate/environment;

  • Telecom/Mobile - Bandwidth Platforms;

  • Delivery – food/water, medical, SAR & SFR

  • NB: CASA 600+ applications




Immediate operational impact
Immediate Operational Impact

  • Real-time appreciation

  • Rapid decision making

  • Accurate resource allocation

  • Task Prioritisation

  • OH&S support

  • Tactical view anywhere via www

  • Productivity

  • Is an average measure of the efficiency of production. The ratio of inputs to outputs in the production process.

  • UAS/UAV Technology will provide the end-user the geospatial information to deploy more cost-effectively:

    • Labour; and

    • Capital (including other robots).

  • The result will be significant productivity gains particularly once a multiplier effect can be achieved using other robots and automation.

  • A few % will result in $B to Australia’s GDP bottom line.



  • Productivity Benefits – Who?

  • Mining & Energy

  • Agriculture & Aquaculture

  • Forestry & Environment

  • Infrastructure & Construction

  • Education & Tourism

  • Government & Defense

  • Hi-Tech Industries

  • NB: Any sector that is geospatially challenged!


  • Productivity Benefits – How?

  • 24/7 Automation (Never Sleeps)

  • Accuracy (cm/mm – revolutionary in many sectors)

  • Repeatability (Change Management)

  • Reliability (Continuous Improvement)

  • Access (Business Model & Low-Cost Options)


  • Productivity Outcome

  • Higher Quality of Output (Premiums)

  • Higher Quantity of Output (new markets)

  • Lower Cost per unit Produced (Efficient)

  • Reduced Waste (use only what is required)

  • Continuous Improvement (tech & processes)


  • Productivity – Challenges

  • Technology Uptake (Capability Development)

  • Regulatory Issues (Pace of Change)

  • Public Perceptions (False & Real)

  • Bandwidth (ACMA Challenge)

  • Data (Processing, Storage & Privacy/Security)


The National Airspace (NAS)

(Higher Barriers to Entry)

Larger Systems 20kg+

> 500ft Operations

100ft Buffer/transition zone

< 400ft Operations

(Lower Barriers to Entry)

Small Systems 1-20kg


The National Airspace (NAS)

> 500-60,000ft Operations

100ft Buffer/transition zone

< 400ft Operations


The Market Disruptor

> 500ft Operations

(Hi-Regulatory costs)

Evolutionary – Substitution of current Aviation Capabilities

< 400ft Operations

(Low-Regulatory costs)

Revolutionary – New Industry Capabilities


Market Development Example

> 500ft Operations

(IBM - Big Blue)

100ft Buffer/transition zone

< 400ft Operations

(PC on every desk)


  • 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


  • Tiered UAS Business Approach

  • Tier 1 – Organic Tactical ‘tool box’ approach

  • Tier 2 – Service Agreements with Govt/ASX

  • Tier 3 – 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


  • Business Model Options

  • Organic developed capability

  • Purchased 3rd Party Services

  • Mixed – organic & 3rd party services*

  • Usually for overflow or for beyond routine tasks

  • N.B: Volunteer crews in EMS organisations


Small UAS/UAVs in volunteer based community organisations could be significant
