Programme U.T.SEC Conference 2018
The use of drones - both a blessing and a curse
At seminars, the information exchange with the police, fire service and other institutions and the most various professional groups Luftfahrtsachverständigenbüro Thomas Grüner (LFSVB Thomas Grüner, www.lfsvb.com) was repeatedly approached in the last few years on questions concerning the use of drones and issues resulting from it. So, it was decided in 2017 to launch its own research project.
Besides the previous experience with accidents and other events the research project "Drohne" (Drone) is to examine all other applications of drones in the daily work of administrative bodies. Insofar fields of application, operating conditions, requirements as to equipment, personnel etc. are defined accordingly and a cost-benefit analysis made. The research project is to identify and analyse problems that have been experienced in the past but also those currently unknown, and define relevant countermeasures. Apart from the staff of administrative bodies it also concerns employees from other institutions/organisations (e.g. fire service, rescue services etc.) and service providers (e.g. experts, commercial drone pilots) working on behalf of administrative bodies, organisations/institutions or under their supervision.
The presentation is to give a brief insight into the research project to show and explain hazardous situations of different kind based on examples of negligent or deliberate misuse of drones. It has become apparent already that measures are urgently necessary for all administrative bodies and persons acting on their behalf. The problems described are to make clear that it is mandatory to consider both a safe use of drones and their threats and risks to develop sustainable strategies and minimize the risks involved.
