BVLOS Australia

BVLOS Australia

BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) approvals in Australia are essential for businesses to maximise the potential of their drone investments. The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) in Australia is responsible for regulating drone operations, including granting BVLOS approvals. To obtain this approval, a business must demonstrate a thorough understanding of the regulations, risk management, and the capability of the drone technology being used.

C3 Drones and Robotics can offer comprehensive packages for businesses looking to take advantage of BVLOS operations. By packaging BVLOS approval support along with the drone hardware/software purchase, they can provide a streamlined process to achieve maximum ROI on your investment. Here’s how:

  1. Consultation and Assessment: C3 Drones and Robotics will start by understanding your business requirements and the concept of operations for your intended operations. This will include identifying the most suitable drone hardware for your operations and ensuring it meets CASA’s BVLOS requirements or a certain level of robustness.
  2. Regulatory Support: C3 Drones and Robotics through its partner Hover UAV will assist your business in navigating the complex regulatory landscape in Australia. They will help you prepare the necessary documentation, including risk assessments, operational procedures, and safety management systems, required for obtaining BVLOS approval from CASA.
  3. Training and Certification: C3 will provide comprehensive training programs for your staff, covering both technical and regulatory aspects of BVLOS operations. This will ensure that your team is equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to operate drones safely and in compliance with CASA’s regulations.
  4. Drone Hardware and Software: C3 will supply your business with the appropriate drone hardware and software tailored to your specific needs. This may include advanced features such as obstacle avoidance, redundant systems, and real-time telemetry to enhance the safety and efficiency of BVLOS operations.
  5. Ongoing Support and Maintenance: C3 will offer ongoing support and maintenance services for your drone hardware, ensuring it remains in optimal working condition. This includes regular firmware updates, troubleshooting, and repairs when needed.

Enterprise Drone Adoption for Industrial Security – (Flytbase White Paper)

The physical security market is one of the most compelling target segments for the commercial drone industry. As automation technology is adopted for industrial and commercial security, drone fleets will play a central role, given that they can be deployed autonomously, at scale. As drone regulations mature, security agencies, in particular, are expected to rapidly adopt drones to substantially reduce their operating costs, improve perimeter coverage & awareness, and equally important to minimize occupational, health & safety risks to human guards. Despite a variety of relevant use cases, the enterprise adoption of drones in this sector remains at the proof-of-concept and pilot stage; for production deployments to become widespread, three enablers are needed:
1 . Drone-in-a-box hardware that is cost-effective and yet reliable,
2. SaaS solutions that automate drones, are scalable and yet hardware-agnostic,
3. Integrated offerings that require low investment, & hence pay back in < 1 year.
For VLOS and EVLOS security operations, the drone-in-a-box requirement is less critical. Thus, security agencies, domain consultants, drone system integrators, managed service providers, and end users can all get started with off-the-shelf, prosumer-grade drones and existing SaaS offerings, and eventually add docking stations and charging pads to their autonomous drone security operations.


To get the most from the adoption of an autonomous drone solution the dream is to have a remote command center (ROC) with pilots ready at a moment’s notice to mobilize the onsite drone to respond to a call to action or conduct scheduled surveillance sweeps of infrastructure or property. As such a beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) approval from a remote (ROC) must be sought from the regulator to allow for remote operations.  The good news is that approvals such as these have already been achieved by industry partners, Hover UAV in Australia. Such approvals allow for pilots to operate independently of the drone’s actual location allowing for valuable time-critical insights without the need for a physical presence onsite of any personnel.

If you are thinking of introducing autonomous drone operations to your workflow don’t hesitate to gain contact. At C3 Drones and Robotics, we have many hardware, software, and regulatory solutions and as such can tailor an entire package to get you operating BVLOS missions autonomously allowing for maximum return on investment bringing your business into the autonomous era.

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology – How it works

A fuel cell is an eco-friendly hydrogen generation technology that produces electricity through a chemical reaction involving hydrogen and oxygen. When supplied into the fuel cell, hydrogen is split into a positive hydrogen ion and an electron at the hydrogen reaction pole. Upon passing the electrolyte membrane, the positive hydrogen ion meets oxygen at the oxygen reaction pole and generates water and electricity. With this, you can power a drone in the case of Doosan Innovation Mobility (DMI) for up to 2 hours. Since oxygen can easily be obtained from the atmosphere, mounting the fuel cell power pack with DMI‘s hydrogen tank is all you need to operate a drone.


The hydrogen fuel cell is the heart of a fuel cell power system. Generating electricity in the form of direct current (DC) from electrochemical reactions that take place in the fuel cell. The amount of power produced by a fuel cell depends upon several factors, such as fuel cell type, cell size, the temperature at which it operates, and the pressure of the gases supplied to the cell all factors that have been carefully analysed, tested and developed by DMIs engineers ensuring their hydrogen fuel cell technology is not only stable but ultimately it is safe.

Is Hydrogen Dangerous?

Hydrogen is a gas that already exists in the atmosphere together with nitrogen and oxygen. Since hydrogen is a very light gas, it does not stay in one location after being emitted during the use of fuel cells but spreads and disappears into the air quickly.
The safety accident rate of hydrogen is lower than that of batteries, and most hydrogen-related accidents have been caused due to human error such as carelessness when handling hydrogen tanks and the failure to inspect the facility.

Where would I find more information on DMI Products?

Here at C3 Drones and Robotics, we have a vast amount of information in regards to the Doosan line of hydrogen products. Please do not hesitate to reach out if requiring more information or to take a look at the system first hand
