Kuala Lumpur: Prior to the implementation of the Movement Control Regulations (CPP), all parties, including media professionals, have been warned not to fly drones anywhere in the country until May 12.
Royal Malaysian Air Force (PGU) UAV Commander-in-Chief Rasha Azaldin Shafii said that flying the Malaysian Civil Aviation Authority (CAAM) drone is a violation of the Malaysian Civil Aviation Regulations 2016 (MCAR 2016).
“Persons who commit illegal operations of drones will face a fine of a minimum of 50,000 ringgits or a three-year imprisonment for individuals, or a maximum fine of 100,000 ringgits for legal persons.
He told Benama: “Please note that unless you get permission from CAAM and the police, not all parties can fly drones.”
He said that during the implementation of PPC, he has tracked four cases of illegal handling of drones and PDAM licenses across the country.
He said: “Further investigations on this matter are ongoing, and the police are ready to use unmanned drone jammer to ensure that no one is flying anywhere without permission.”
Rasha Azaldin (Rasha Azaldin) said that the use of drones is specifically used for aerial surveillance across the country, including areas where the Forced Operations Control Command (PKPD) is executed.
He said: “During the entire cardiopulmonary resuscitation period, the use of drone technology is particularly effective in early warning and early warning to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.”
On April 7, CAAM authorized PDRM through PGU Dron to operate unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or drones for surveillance and execution during PPC.
CAAM also announced the collaboration of the drone led by PDRM with the Malaysian Armed Forces and three private drone companies. -Bernama
