AVT Australia receives development contract

4th November 2019 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


AVT Australia has been awarded a $5.2 million Defence Innovation Hub contract by the Australian government to develop a system capable of improving the quality of images captured by UAS.

AVT Australia aims to reduce the size of micro gimbal system technology to enable integration of multiple sensors as well as incorporating a range of autonomous tracking algorithms.

The work is being carried out as part of work led by the Defence Innovation Hub to explore and demonstrate how UAS can benefit the Australian Defence Force.  

Minister for Defence Industry, Melissa Price, said: ‘AVT Australia is committed to developing the world’s best micro gimbal system which could provide a significant capability edge in a future battlefield environment.

‘Defence is Australia’s largest and most experienced UAS operator, and it’s important to remain at the cutting edge of a capability that offers superior surveillance, intelligence and force protection.’
