Australian Association for Unmanned Systems
AAUS, in association with CivSec Australia, will be hosting a free conference and educational seminar at CIVSEC 2016. The event will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on June 1, 2016 and includes an information session on new regulations, legal, and privacy issues.
The morning conference will focus on the utility of unmanned systems in civil security applications. Key note speakers include Anthony Patterson (Cobham), Peter Smith (Textron Systems), Dr Derek Rogers (Saab Australia), Dr Robert Dane (Ocius Technology) and Dr Malcolm Shore (BAE Systems).
The afternoon seminar is a must for new operators or people looking at getting involved in operating drones professionally. It is intended to be an educational seminar that will focus on the amended CASA regulations (and what they mean for you and your business), getting the right insurance, and managing risk and privacy matters. Speakers include Dr Reece Clothier (AEGIS Aerospace), Simon Hooper (QBE Insurance) and Peggy MacTavish (Flight Data Systems).
Both events are free to attend, for members and non-members of AAUS. However, you must register as an accredited delegate to the CivSec Conference (which is free). To apply for accreditation and register please visit:

About CIVSEC 2016
CIVSEC 2016 is an international forum dealing with the acutely relevant, and inextricably interconnected, imperatives of civil security and civil defence in the preservation of sovereignty, the protection of people and the safety of communities.
It confronts the complex and increasingly interdependent challenges of the control of borders, the maintenance of law and order, the prevention of terrorism, the defence against threats to society, the protection of people and communities, the security of infrastructure and resources, the provision of emergency services, the response to disasters, the coordination of relief and the management of crises.
Comprising a high-level Stakeholder Summit, followed by a congress of specialist conferences, seminars and workshops, CIVSEC 2016 will bring together leaders and decision-makers, policy-makers and advisers, managers and officials, operational professionals, technical specialists, strategists and academics, researchers and consultants, technology developers and industry suppliers.
CIVSEC 2016 is reserved for those with a professional, business or operational involvement in the safety, policing emergency services, civil security and related government or industry sectors. No admission fees are payable by accredited delegates and CIVSEC 2016 is being organised on a pro-bono basis in the interest of the advancement of civil security and civil defence.
