CASA approved Multi-Use Listed Aviation Safety Contractor and Consultant Number 06/829-26


Unmanned Systems Australia Pty Ltd provide autonomous systems consulting services. We are based in Brisbane, Australia, and capitalizes on over 26 years experience in the uncrewed autonomous systems industry. 

Commencing in 2013, Unmanned Systems Australia was the first company  to conduct last mile drone delivery in Australia. Working with the Google X team under Project Wing, Unmanned Systems Australia successfully deployed to regional Queensland and completed last mile deliveries as the lead drone consulting company and systems integrator for Project Wing.  In 2017 we commenced operations in Canberra and Southern New South Wales as the last mile delivery provider of choice for Alphabet's Wing Aviation Pty Ltd. In 2018 we expanded this coverage to South East Queensland and the Logan Area of Sothern Brisbane.  Unmanned Systems Australia provided all consulting and operational services including capability development, project management, logistic support services and autonomous systems operators.  Since 2018, staff from Unmanned Systems Australia have been instrumental in providing capability improvement and service enhancements to Alphabet (Wing) autonomous last mile delivery system around the world, including the United Stated, Finland and Australia.  Our staff have over 100,000 flights of experience with aerial autonomous systems in complex and urban terrain.

Unmanned Systems Australia can also assist companies in the operationalization of their capability - under a third party model.  This is where the client understands the system they would like to operate, with but may not have the level of expertise to fully undertake the immediate commencement of operations. Unmanned Systems Australia can assist in the ramp up and soft deployment of the capability: including regulatory engagement, procedure development and staffing to grow the capability until the client has sufficient expertise to undertake their own operations.

Our team at Unmanned Systems Australia have expertise in the certification of autonomous aircraft, relevant to US FAA Part 135, Part 23, 121 and Part 91 operations.  We are actively engaged with regulators in Australia and looking to expand the certification approval process for the Advance Air mobility Market (AAM).  Where your requirements are rapid prototyping, or project management or operational oversight: we can also assist.

Historical news


Drawing upon the multi-year agreement with Alphabets Wing Delivery system, staff from Unmanned Systems Australia successfully enabled Wing to achieve their 14 CFR 135 Air Carrier Certificate. This enabled Wing to become the first uncrewed airline in the United States. See here for detail.

After this initial success, staff were then asked to continue to work with Wing to enhance their e-learning environment, implement critical procedures and safety control mechanisms and assist Wing in the ongoing management of global operations in Australia, Finland and the United States.



Commencing back in 2013, with the initial drone delivery in Australia, we have continued to work with the Google X team under Project Wing.  In 2017, Unmanned Systems Australia commenced operations in the ACT and Southern NSW as the last mile delivery provider working with Alphabet's Project Wing.  Unmanned systems Australia provided all consulting and operational services for Google X and Wing, including capability development, project management, logistic support services and autonomous systems operators.  In 2018, Project Wing became a standalone company and graduating form Google X program. Since that time we have conducted over 1000 deliveries and well over 3000 flights in Australia.  After a highly successful trial of the capability in Royalla, NSW, Project Wing and Unmanned Systems Australia are now ready to expand these services to the Southern ACT region.

In recognition of the significant amount of work, including test flights in both Australia and the United States, and as a testament to the safety of the Project Wing aircraft delivery system, Unmanned Systems Australia has been granted approval to conduct commercial drone delivery operations in the ACT.  We think this is the first approval of its kind anywhere in the world, and establishes Unmanned Systems Australia and Project Wing as world leaders in the drone delivery market.

Unmanned Systems Australia brings the Schiebel S-100 CAMCOPTER to the market.

Vienna, 06 February 2017 – The Royal Australian Navy awarded to Schiebel a contract for the supply of its CAMCOPTER® S-100 System and three years of follow-on Contractor Logistics Support.

The Royal Australian Navy released an international Request for Tender (RfT) in late February 2016 for a UAS capability. Schiebel was very pleased to be able to submit a comprehensive proposal to deliver the latest version of its highly successful CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAS. After thorough proposal evaluation and completing negotiations, the contract was signed at the end of December 2016.

Hans Georg Schiebel, owner of Schiebel Group, emphasizes: “We feel most honored by the Royal Australian Navy’s decision to purchase our CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAS. We are sure that the S-100 will prove to be an effective asset that will set a new benchmark for UAS capability.”

As the experience of the company’s diverse maritime customers shows, the CAMCOPTER® S-100 improves the situational awareness of ship-borne operations substantially, making it the number one short-range tactical unmanned aircraft for naval applications.

The CAMCOPTER® S-100 holds an impressive track record of supporting naval customers, with missions successfully completed on over 30 different ships on all the world’s oceans, in every environment from the tropics to the Arctic.
