Canadian UAVs

Thought I'd start some info flow on Canadian UAV activity and hopefully focus on non-combat uses.

These are a few links that popped up first when I did a search.

http://www.uavs.ca/outreach/HistoryUAVs.pdf
http://www.unmannedsystems.ca/index.php


Just a start, I will work on keeping more interesting info coming...

  • Well to get a SFOC in Canada is not so easy but you can, try to contact the CCUVS (Canadian Center for UVS) http://www.ccuvs.org , they can give you all information you need to .

    And even with a SFOC you can't fly beyond visaul range and more than 400ft high so it s the same as flying in a MAAC airfield ( http://www.maac.ca/ )

    Other source of info (more commercial)
    Unmanned Systems Canada (and UAVSI Canada, they merged month ago) http://www.unmannedsystems.ca/

    and an old chapter of DIYdrone in Alberta with links to some canadian manufacturer and user of UAV

  • Hi Ron, thanks for the links. I have been dealing with a couple Canadian civilian corporations as well:

    Micropilot (including the cropcam UAV) - http://micropilot.com

    Aerial Insight - http://aerialinsight.com

    Especially the last company has, in my opinion, looked at all the different components of a UAS system, including data processing. Thas something I have not seen from many other UAV companies out there.
