Another Drone Incident in Sydney

For the second time this month drone operators in Sydney have caused a major incident – in this case crashing what looks like a high end DJI drone into a moving vehicle on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. News Corp has a article on the incident here.

Given airspace around the bridge is restricted via CASA and given the built up and heavy road and pedestrian traffic in the area you have to wonder what the operator was thinking in operating in this area.

The other question for consideration is why key infrastructure like the Bridge, or the Opera House etc don’t have threat detection technology installed…Airbus was showcasing this technology at CES in January 2015
