Military-grade Training for our Sydney Drone Operator

Douglas Partners continues to support and encourage Jack Snowden, an Environmental Scientist in the Sydney office, who is part of the Australian Army Reserves.

Jack Snowden and His Drone

Jack is a section commander with 7 Light Battery, 9 Regiment, Royal Australian Artillery based in Sydney and has been a part of the Australian Army Reserves for over 7 years. He recently attended a Multi Rotor Unmanned Aerial System (MRUAS) operators course with Defence. MRUAS or ‘drones’ have huge potential, both in the military and civilian workspaces.

Douglas Partners has recently purchased a drone for a number of technical mapping and investigation projects. This capability will enable Douglas Partners to further deliver ‘out of the box’ outcomes and solutions for our clients.

The MRUAS operators course is a primary example of the benefit of employing Australian Army Reservists in the civilian workplace.
