Mundus Group, Inc. subsidiary Air Drone’s Justin Chapman wrote in 2010 the FAA Manual for movie industry safety and standardization of operational regulations and compliance for UAV VTOL cinematography delivery systems. Justin Chapman has become well known in the RC Remote Controlled helicopter world — winning more than 50 RC helicopter contests.
Mr. Chapman’s aerial cinematography work has been seen around the world in Hollywood blockbusters like “Race to Witch Mountain” and “Old Dogs.” Since 2003 Chapman Aerospace has been involved in the cutting edge design, engineering and production of electric zero emission drones for multiple payload scenarios in the UAVTOL Unmanned Air Vertical Take Off and Landing industry.
Mundus Chairman Keith Field points out, “We are proud of Justin’s accomplishments and his visionary growth as a true UAV innovator with the skills and helicopter pilot FAA certification that has earned him the reputation in the Hollywood movie industry as the preeminent UAV Safety Officer, who has not only set the standards of practice and legal operation, but now has written the book, the law of the land for our niche UAV division.” Field continues, “But, this is only one area of many in which Mundus Group plans to operate and have equally significant impact using our newest coaxial shrouded Electric zero emission, Air drone.
“Considering National Security and Public Health, Mundus Group Inc., is looking to provide solutions to UAV threatening scenarios, including the successfully averted terrorist attack using UAVs loaded with explosives in a planned attack on The Pentagon according news sources. Mundus and Air Drone played no part in assisting the authorities and are referencing it as a reason for Mundus to be in a position to write the safety operations on UAV delivery systems anywhere in the country and therefore help assist FAA, and Homeland Security with the regulation and standards for legal operation, thus making any operation of any UAV without this standard of authority unlawful.”
Mundus Air Drone systems would stand as the first line of defense in identifying the threat quickly, allowing responses to minimize the impact of the threat. Currently, thousands of monitors comprised of passive and active samplers can scan soil, air, and water for threats from chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive agents. Mundus believes that UAVs will play a critical role in providing the most reliable, economic and environmentally safe delivery system capable of vigilant monitoring and the defense of human populations around the world.
