Future airspace management
Airspace is being transformed at a rapid rate by the emergence of new technologies that will allow products, services and aid to reach people and places faster. We're seeing astonishing growth in uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) use in industries such as mining, farming and emergency services, with new applications for the technology appearing every day. This transformation requires us to develop innovative solutions to ensure our skies remain safe for traditional aircraft, new airspace users and the community.
Evolving the industry
We engaged with world-leading, innovative organisations that each developed a FIMS prototype aligned to our outcomes-based requirements.
In October and November 2022, we conducted in-field trials of each FIMS prototype, testing real-world capabilities that will support thriving UAS operations in Australia.
The FIMS Prototype work has enabled Airservices to build a deep understanding of the innovative capabilities we will provide in our FIMS.
