KJR joins the Australian Association for Uncrewed Systems

News

30 January 2024

With over 3,000 members, the Australian Association of Uncrewed Systems (AAUS) serves as a unified voice for the entire drone and urban air mobility industry.

KJR’s decision to become a member of AAUS aligns with our commitment to actively contribute to the advancement and responsible development of the drone and urban air mobility industry in regional Australia.   

Being part of this influential community enables us to stay at the forefront of industry trends, regulatory developments, and emerging technologies. It allows us to share our expertise, contribute valuable insights, and actively participate in discussions that influence the trajectory of the drone and urban air mobility sector in Australia. 

KJR is actively collaborating with AAUS and various government agencies to identify opportunities within the drone industry and to push the boundaries of technology. 

 

Introducing the Drone Trailer 

Building upon our commitment to innovation, in partnership with Fly Freely, KJR has developed the DJI Drone Dock Trailer. This project combines the capabilities of the DJI Drone Dock with an off-grid enhancement.

Using Starlink for internet connectivity and solar panels for power autonomy, the dock trailer will be able to operate in a wide range of challenging and off-grid environments to count wildlife, detect feral animals, identify coral, detect erosion and more. 

This project will bring extensive technical capabilities to land management work in remote locations in Australia.

Exploring Drone and AI Applications in Remote Regions of Australia 

KJR partnered with Trusted Autonomous Systems using autonomous drones in remote regions of Australia. The project explores the potential of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and cutting-edge drone mapping technology. KJR brings its expertise in responsible trusted AI through Assurance and Governance to ensure the security of the data collected, maximise the performance of the AI and machine learning models, and guarantee the robustness of the systems. 

The processes developed can be applied to the Defence industry with autonomous drones used for search and detect or search and rescue. 

KJR brings its expertise in software testing, edge computing, network integration, software configuration & customisation, and quality assurance to ensure the integration of the various technology components and processes, and adherence to current regulations.

We look forward to leveraging this AAUS partnership to identify and capitalise on new opportunities, drive innovation, and contribute to the sustainable growth of the industry as a whole.
