Matt has come to Carbonix from the UK as part of Skyports Drone Services with the aim to scale BVLOS Drone operation in Australia using his experience in the best-in-class UAV flight operations team.

A specialist in BVLOS aerial survey and inspection, Matt has led a range of deployments across the UK and Europe, flying complex UAVs in harsh environments for various use cases, including pathology and chemotherapy delivery for the UK National Health Service (NHS) and Detect and Avoid testing as part of a joint European project (SESAR), which aims to modernise the continent’s air traffic control infrastructure.
