Project SkySensus and Peraton Canada
SkySensus is a R&D project under Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) Canada’s Industrial and Technological Benefits policy, funded and led by Peraton Canada for the research and development, and commercialization of Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) technology in unmanned systems. The project objective is to develop advancements and innovation of unmanned systems operations, airworthiness standards and training. The project brings together Alberta-based small businesses; Canadian UAVs (Detect and Avoid Technology), AERIUM Analytics (Data Analytics and Automation), and Foremost UAS Range (Regulatory Compliance, Test and Evaluation).
As part of SkySensus, Canadian UAVs is producing the Sparrowhawk™ Radar system. This is a highly deployable radar system, with a minimized footprint and low cost which opens up airspace for UAV operation. Sparrowhawk will be available for select partners in 2022.

Canadian UAVs is proud to be a Tier 1 supplier and founding partner in Team Artemis. Team Artemis is the result of a teaming between L3Harris Technologies, a premier Canadian in-service support and system integrator, and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), a world leader in the development of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). Team Artemis also includes a group of leading pan-Canadian companies, offering advanced proven systems, components and services, to provide the RCAF with the best cost-effective solution and unparalleled support for the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) program.

Canadian UAVs has partnered with Lockheed Martin since 2019 to produce a leading RPAS Traffic Management solution based upon the Sparrowhawk Radar and VCSi, the ground control station software produced by Lockheed Martin CDL Systems in Calgary. The combination of these products creates not only a complete airspace picture, but the command and control suite necessary to pilot a UAV. By merging these two products, airspace awareness and piloting are presented in a unified solution, thus removing any delays in notifying operators about airspace intrusion.
Canadian UAVs is also a proud user of Lockheed Martin small UAS, such as the Indago 2 and 3. This is a class leading quad-rotor capable of all weather operation, and extended flight times. Indago is the vehicle be used for our initial BVLOS operations out to 10km from the GCS.

TECTERRA is a geospatial technology innovation support centre that supports the Canadian development and commercialization of geomatics technologies. The first centre of its kind, TECTERRA works with industry, entrepreneurs, researchers, and government affiliates to enable the use of geospatial technologies in addressing local, national and global challenges.
Canadian UAVs has been the recipient of funding programs to help assist with the adoption of UAV technology into the GIS marketplace, specifically with removing the barriers to rapid UAV deployment. As part of the “Tasker” project, we are finding new and improved ways to streamline UAV operations and make them as routine as manned aviation.
