Tactical Logistics Uncrewed Aerial Systems (LOG-UAS) for the Land Force
Show close time for other time zones
The Department of Defence (Defence) via the Australian Army and the Defence Innovation Hub (DIH) are seeking innovation submissions that will assist Defence in exploring tactical Logistics Uncrewed Aerial Systems (LOG-UAS) for the Land Force. Army has a mature layering of surveillance and reconnaissance UASs from micro through to large. UAS that can supplement / undertake routine resupply, high risk combat resupply and casualty evacuation missions to troops in contact remains a capability gap. For context, industry could consider Army’s Robotic and Autonomous Systems Strategy which outlines the need for un-crewed and autonomous platforms to deliver combat supplies through self-cueing resupply and automated platform delivery.
