Unmanned Research Aircraft Facility
Adelaide Drone Hub
The University of Adelaide's Unmanned Research Aircraft Facility (URAF) provides the organisational infrastructure, as well as the technical and legislative knowledge base concerning the use of unmanned aircraft, or Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), for a wide range of environmental and agricultural applications.
It also serves as a coalescing node for fostering partnerships and interactions related to RPAS applications between students, researchers, natural resource managers and industry partners in South Australia.
URAF holds the University's RPAS Operator's Certificate (ReOC) for compliant RPAS operations. We are the first and only university in Australia to be a civil aviation-certified RPAS training facility.
