Drone surveillance to start at Canberra Airport as five spotted in past two years


New data shows there have been five recorded sightings of drones near Canberra Airport in the last 28 months. In coming months, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority will undertake drone-tracking surveillance at Canberra Airport and other major metropolitan airports to try to better understand the extent of the problem and how to address it. Dr Jai Galliott of the School of Engineering and Information Technology was interviewed by RiotACT about the dangers of drone use at airports.
