About us:

Australian Droid and Robot is the collaboration between Dr Joe Cronin and Dawid Preller (also soon to be Doctor).

Joe is well known in the mining and defence industries with over a quarter of a century of experience in complex technical project management and robotics in weapons systems and unmanned vehicles. His PhD is in robotics.

He has recently completed the full automation of an underground mine in NSW where fully autonomous 50 tonne vehicles roam the production level 24 hours a day / 7 days a week with no operators in the cabins.

Dawid is a competition RC pilot and a rocket scientist. His aeronautical design skills are world class. His ability to build - fly - refine - build - fly - refine - build, etc. are second to none.

Dawid is active in the international aerospace community and is very excited about re-usable satellite launch vehicles.

Between them, they posses a wealth of experience in the development of UAVs and are looking forward to what ADR can deliver in this space.


Australian Droid and Robot are currently in the process of application for our UOC (the piece of paper that allows us to fly drones above ground commercially). Once our UOC has been obtained, we will offer a limited number of UAV services.
