The Australian Army is encouraging industry to develop unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that can facilitate logistics operations.

Three companies from eastern Australia have been contracted to develop medium-lift and heavy-lift UAVs after their ideas were selected at Army Innovation Day (AID) 2022, the Australian Department of Defence (DoD) said on 11 September.

AID is the Australian Army’s annual flagship event for reviewing innovation concepts by industry for technologies and systems that can enhance the capabilities of the force.

Queensland-based Jabiru Aircraft and Crystalaid and New South Wales-based Geodrones have secured contracts to develop cargo UAVs that can help carry ammunition or rations to deployed troops and conduct casualty evacuation (CASEVAC) in “restricted terrain or high-risk environments”, the DoD said.
