Apr 12, 2018

While drones are growing in popularity for recreational and commercial applications, Australia is currently one of the leaders in utilising this game-changing capability in defence. In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant chats with Australian Army Lieutenant Colonel Keirin Joyce – one of the key officers driving the development of the unmanned aerial system (UAS) program within Army – who shares his insights on the accessibility of the technology for Australian soldiers and how developments in drone functionality are enhancing the capabilities of Australian soldiers on the battlefield. Join LTCOL Joyce as he shares what the future holds for drone technology in defence, the opportunity for Australia’s defence industry to support drone development, the changes we are likely to see in combat support, and how this technology could potentially reignite the once thriving domestic aircraft industry.
