UAS Technology an

Emerging Strategic Capability in

Driving Australian Productivity

By Mark Xavier

(Group MD/CEO)

slide2
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)

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
slide12
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.
slide14
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!
slide15
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)
slide16
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)
slide17
Productivity – Challenges
  • Technology Uptake (Capability Development)
  • Regulatory Issues (Pace of Change)
  • Public Perceptions (False & Real)
  • Bandwidth (ACMA Challenge)
  • Data (Processing, Storage & Privacy/Security)
slide18
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

slide19
The National Airspace (NAS)

> 500-60,000ft Operations

100ft Buffer/transition zone

< 400ft Operations

slide20
The Market Disruptor

> 500ft Operations

(Hi-Regulatory costs)

Evolutionary – Substitution of current Aviation Capabilities

< 400ft Operations

(Low-Regulatory costs)

Revolutionary – New Industry Capabilities

slide21
Market Development Example

> 500ft Operations

(IBM - Big Blue)

100ft Buffer/transition zone

< 400ft Operations

(PC on every desk)

slide22
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
slide23
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
slide24
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
slide25
Small UAS/UAVs in volunteer based community organisations could be significant
