Unmanned Systems Canada announces their 10th student UAS Competition

This is a “made in Canada” Simulated BVLOS UAS Student Competition. The purpose of the competition is to promote and develop Canadian expertise and experience in unmanned systems technologies at the university and college levels. Small unmanned aerial vehicles are complex systems requiring a well planned and executed design and rehearsed operational approach. In addition, safety considerations are important factors in this competition as in any other vehicle design project.

UAS are currently used by law enforcement personnel for a variety of tasks such as traffic accident scene reconstruction, search and rescue, and crime scene and event monitoring. Additional tasks are possible given the capabilities of today’s UAS; law enforcement is interested in exploring the capabilities of UAS for Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) surveillance, delivery of packages to a selected location, and searching for an item. See 2016’s overview video below.
