s 100 parliament house 001

The association of Australian Certified UAV Operators Inc. (ACUO) has called for the establishment of a regional counter-unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) initiative led by the Australian Department of Defence as part of stepped up engagement with ASEAN and allied nations aimed at offsetting and overcoming a rapid global proliferation of threat systems.

The proposed initiative would include Australia hosting an annual international counter-UAS exercise at local weapons ranges, and launching of a domestic sourcing program for low cost representative threat aircraft.
