The Centre of Drone Excellence (CoDE) is an initiative of Lardner Park and the Institute for Drone Technology. CoDE will provide a focal point for drone knowledge management, becoming a permanently located hub for drone technology for the Asia Pacific region and championing the future of the drone industry.

Through capturing new knowledge and practices from inside (and outside) the drone (UAV) industry, CoDE aims to create best practice in drone technology, education and commercial application and disseminate these to the public, business, academia and international communities.

CoDE aims to increase productivity through efficiency and the effectiveness of drone technology in various industry sectors and delivering solution outcomes. Importantly, CoDE will enable regional communities to be informed, understand, be trained and licensed, and implement drone technology.

This will contribute to new employment opportunities, knowledge generation and sharing, seeding of new businesses and expansion to new areas for existing businesses. Increasing productivity and creating regional employment also stimulates skill change opportunities for workers from the Latrobe Valley, Wellington and Baw Baw Shires.
