In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by engineer, project manager and solution integrator at Mirragin Aerospace Consulting, Rob Sutton, to discuss Australia’s role as a leader in the growing drone sector and its place in defence industry.
Sutton will share how Mirragin is tailoring solutions to an array of clients while unpacking the vast capability of drone technology across multiple industries in everything from communications to surveillance and maintenance.
Having served with the military himself, Sutton will reflect on his time in uniform and the transition of his interests into the drone sector, and discuss Australia’s place in the future of the technology.
