Airservices partners with CASA on drone detection program

8 Nov 2019

Airservices is pleased to partner with CASA on a program to detect and track drone activity at Australian Airports.

The program, to deliver a joint drone detection capability, is being run at 29 of the country’s busiest airports where Airservices also provides air traffic control services.

With the rapid rise of the use of drones in Australian airspace the program aims to identify and effectively manage safety risks near airports.

This will result in enhanced safety for airspace users as well as strengthened investigative and enforcement action from the CASA, the regulator.
