Coast Guardians undergo UAS Training in Bataan

TWENTY-three Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) personnel have undergone a three-day training on the use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) in Mariveles, Bataan, from 28 to 30 May 2024.

Facilitated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the capacity-building initiative equipped Coast Guardians from the Coast Guard Aviation Command (CGAvCom) and Office of the Deputy Chief of Coast Guard Staff for Strategic Studies and Modernization (CG-15) with knowledge and skills on drone regulations and flight considerations, preparation of flight plans, programming and operating the UAS.

They also learned about processing the images and data into geographic information system (GIS) data.

The two drones donated by the German Federal Government were used during the training.

In November and December 2023, Coast Guardians received UAS training workshops under the GIZ project, held in Cavite and Palawan.
