WASABI - Angel Fire

An aircraft with surveillance cameras mounted below it.

Project WASABI is a joint project being undertaken by National Security and ISR Division.

The focus of Project WASABI is to conduct reseach and development into the use of wide-area airborne surveillance to extract patterns of flow of everyday activities in an urban setting.

The Project will establish a basis of comparison in the event of public emergencies, provision of security during major events, or Australian response to disaster relief efforts.

A core activity to Project WASABI is the conduct of flight trials using the DST Group Defence Experimentation Airborne Platform (DEAP)
