FREQUENTIS Australasia to develop drone integration platform for Airservices Australia

By Eric Van Rees - 1st February 2022 - 17:16

Airservices Australia has selected Frequentis to participate in a competitive down-selection process to create Australia’s first Flight Information Management System (FIMS).

The system will support the safe integration of emerging airspace users into the country’s low-altitude airspace. Frequentis is one of four companies selected to create a system tailored to Australia’s aviation industry, with in-field trials expected later in 2022.

Frequentis Australasia has assembled a team that draws upon the best capabilities of both the Australian and global Uncrewed Aerial Systems (UAS) industry. Australian businesses are at the forefront of the work, ensuring that the most appropriate local expertise is available as well as helping to stimulate the local UAS industry.

“The expected growth of new airspaces users and new aircraft types – all with different automation, digitisation and intelligence systems – presents an exciting opportunity for Airservices to work collaboratively with industry to develop the FIMS and provide safe, efficient and equitable access to airspace,” said Peter Curran, Airservices Chief Customer Experience & Strategy Officer. “This will be a central component of the UAS Traffic Management (UTM) ecosystem, providing common situational awareness among everyone operating in Australian airspace.”
