TerraLuma attended the local Dronefest at Lauderdale, Tasmania last weekend to show the public what UAS are used for in research.
“Dronefest 2016 celebrates the last five years in which the “drone industry” in Tasmania has expanded rapidly as many industries find drones are effectively work horses in the sky, and potentially underground. (…) A survey conducted in August 2016 by the Rotary Club of Bellerive of employment in the “drone industry” in Tasmania has indicated that in the last five years the industry has grown from a few full time equivalents (FTE) to about 55 FTE today. Moreover a number of companies have indicated they are expecting to expand their drone-based workforce in the next 12 months.” (Source: Dronefest website).
