The UASI standard addresses a much-needed gap in the drone services market by certifying operators to meet a high standard of professionalism, safety, experience and capability.

Building upon a previous safety audit by SGS, this sets the company apart. “In the past it has been challenging for the market to differentiate”, says NSW Director Andrew Chapman, “…between professional aerial data service providers like AUAV offering high-end services, and the many smaller operators providing only basic aerial photography”.

This month Australian UAV features as the only Australian business in the '2018 Top 20 Global Drone Companies' list published by Droneii in Germany:  https://www.droneii.com/top20-drone-service-provider-ranking . We are honoured to be included on the list, especially as we think we might be the only company listed that has not received external funding to facilitate our growth and the only Australian company to be included. Over the next 12 months we anticipate there will be a considerable re-shaping of the industry in Australia as smaller players drop out and consolidation takes hold. Going into this consolidation phase in a strong position gives us confidence that we will continue to thrive and grow thereby cementing our position as one of Australia's leading drone service businesses.
