Drone Operation in Local Government

Price: $808.50 incl GST

Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), also known as "drones", are increasingly capable and adaptable across a range of tasks that are performed by local government.

From infrastructure management and vegetation mapping to land use planning and tourism, drones have the capacity to perform many tasks, often saving time and money when used appropriately.

There are many options variables to consider when determining the best use of drones – the range of technologies available and how they may be used, public safety, current laws surrounding drone operations, contractor versus in-house operations – these are just a few of the issues to address in determining how and when drones may be used in the local government environment.
