ATN is the Australian Traffic Network, established in Australia in 1997 as the founding business in the Global Traffic Network group, comprising Australia, Brazil and the United Kingdom. Its operations are ground studio and manned helicopter radio and television traffic broadcasting, operating in all the major capital cities of Australia.
From its inception, ATN has needed to develop, modify or adapt systems, ranging from airborne electronic newsgathering systems in the helicopters to bespoke mission-critical software and hard ware solutions for our multi-station, national broadcasting requirements. It has become part of their DNA to be a technology innovator with full-time engineering and software developers on staff.
ATN has launched a drone swarm-light show operation, with the same team that launched, and still runs, The Australian Traffic Network today. The primary mission for the drone light shows is for the entertainment and commercial advertising business.
They fully expect to become innovators in this field and develop new software and firmware for flight operations, data and RF (radio frequency) systems for telemetry and control, along with integrating unique battery chemistry and systems to enhance drone light show performance and operation.
