QINETIQ AUSTRALIA

QinetiQ Australia has been awarded a contract to design and construct an unmanned aerial systems (UAS) flight test range (FTR) on behalf of the Queensland Government.

The FTR will be located at Cloncurry Aerodrome in North West Queensland and will consist of access to a commercial quality runway, dedicated hangar and workshop, range control centre, range control system including a primary surveillance radar and other surveillance and tracking equipment, dedicated airspace and regulatory approvals for UAS FTR operations.

The initial capability offered by the facility will support all weight classes of UAS for routine flying operations, demonstration activities and test and evaluation trials of moderate complexity. Future phases of development will support the full range of ground and flight test activity, providing an Australian home for the conduct of highly complex developmental test programs.

Under the Agreement Navantia Australia will work towards establishing a digital ship as a means to enhance the service level for each class of ship.

The Initiative is a national program being delivered through the Defence Science Centre (DSC), the Defence Science Institute (DSI), the Defence Innovation Network (DIN) and the Defence Innovation Partnership (DIP) that aims to inspire solutions that will grow Australia’s AI capability and foster a national network focused on developing AI and ML technology.
