UNMANNED SYSTEMS INDAGO
UNMANNED SYSTEMS INDAGO
Canadian UAVs has spared no expense getting the best. The Indago Unmanned Systems from Lockheed Martin proves our intent. With the most robust autopilot, airframe and software, this military grade UAV is the safest means for acquiring data in its class.
Canadian UAVs employs Lockheed Martin CDL Systems UAV control software called mGCS which has more than one million hours of operational use. This is the most widely used UAV control system for the United States and Canadian Military. We believe that our customers deserve the peace of mind that every link in the chain of our UAV operations has been vetted and comprehensively structured to ensure compliance and safety.
Confined Spaces - Inspected Safely
Confined Spaces - Inspected Safely
Canadian UAVs is pleased to offer indoor and confined space inspections with a world-leading collision-tolerant UAV. UAV inspections allow for unparalleled cost and time savings, ensuring complete asset integrity, and Canadian UAVs is equipped to bring this technology to some of the most difficult and inaccessible places, previously unreachable by UAVs.
With a carbon fibre frame, modular design for quick and easy maintenance, and robust hardware, this collision-tolerant UAV is safe in crashes up to 15 km/h. Focus on inspecting the asset without the worry of damaging the asset, or the UAV. Flights can be completed in direct proximity of humans, without any risk of injury.
UAVs allow for easy and safe inspection of dangerous to reach and previously unreachable assets. Human risk is minimized by decreasing their involvement in asset analysis.
With a quick start up time, extended battery life, and reduced asset downtime, inspections can be completed in hours, not days.
Heights, depths or tight spaces no longer require expensive equipment to access, such as scaffolding or cranes. Reduced downtime of company assets and a marginal inspection cost compared to traditional methods are ensured by an inexpensive yet world-class aerial platform.
Equipped with a 1920x1080p full HD camera, uncooled FLIR 160x120 thermal camera, and a 5 LED array for forward, top, and bottom lighting for even the darkest of environments, inspect what you want with ease. With a 360° horizontal and 215° vertical field of view, almost any asset can be analyzed and inspected.
Thermal imaging is a tried and tested method of inspection. Thermal imaging allows an operator to see the heat signatures of an asset in question, analyze the output for potential problems, and then make an informed decision. This data gives operators an unparalled advantage in asset integrity.
Canadian UAVs' ground control station allows for live video stream of the data captured by the UAV, while allowing up to 500 m in range, for difficult, hard to reach places. All pertinent information is continuously uploaded to the tablet, such as battery level, flight time signal strength, relative heading, altitude, camera exposure, and light intensity. In addition to live telemetry data, the hand controller allows for easy maneuvers of the UAV, as well as full payload control, such as tilt angle, light exposure, LED brightness, and visual/thermal control.
Data acquisition may be the most important thing to an operator. Data acquisition is what the Canadian UAVs does. All data recorded during flights is automatically downloaded to an SD card embedded on the UAV, and can be used for analysis right away, with no need for post processing. Make informed decisions regarding your assets with the world-class video data that Canadian UAVs provides.
Our collision-tolerant UAV operates on the 2.4 GHz wireless band, which requires no special authorization or license, while still maintaining optimal video and telemetry feed to the operator. With the ability to operate up to 500m from the operator and beyond visual line of sight within indoor environments, there is no parallel in data acquisition.

OIL & GAS
OIL & GAS
Our solutions effectively ‘scale down’ the project to a manageable size. This enables oil and gas managers to gain a comprehensive understanding of the entire data set. Our modern approach provides the answer to problems which were unattainable or too costly to justify using traditional aviation or surveying methods.
By combining above and below ground data, operators have an unprecedented ability to understand their opperating environment. This is a key differentiator In markets where oil prices are under pressure. Companies that leverage cost effective technologies will gain important advantages. Canadian UAVs provides an important solution for the most pressing issue in the commodities markets: institutional public trust
With up to 2cm of high resolution imaging detail, our automated data collection gives companies and auditors unprecedented access to rich information. The utility of the data is enormous when the data is fed into 3D modelling software for ongoing analysis and management.
This is an example of what we can do with our technology. Natural gas leaks can't be seen by the human eye however a UAV with a FLIR camera can identify these types of pipeline failures.
Canadian UAVs deploys military and civilian data acquisition and management tools to enhance situational awareness of utility, oil and gas and other industrial assets. By using unmanned aerial platforms Canadian UAVs is able to assist your company in gaining critical perspective previously unavailable or too costly. Through greater automation and spatial context you and your management team are able to understand the true current and historical state of your project for compliance, insurance, project management, and resource allocation purposes.
Our enterprise solutions remove the burden of regulatory restrictions of the platform and allow you to get to the business of making the best decisions with actionable data.
Our combination of UAVs, helicopters and real-time response operations trucks is globally unprecedented. We can get to any asset with or without roads, and perform our world class inspections while our competition is still trying to understand their logistical constraints.
When your environmental reputation is on the line, time is money. We provide value by getting there immediately with our one stop aviation logistic shop.
Urban spread into agricultural lands and the growing needs of a global population have forced producers to adapt.
Now, agricultural operators have no choice but to do more with less. Our data acquisition solutions enable farmers to assess the needs of the land as never before. Our approach provides insights into how to best apply your limited and costly resources to yield the most output.
More specifically, the enactment, among other things,
(a) reinforces the “polluter pays” principle;
(b) confirms that the liability of companies that operate pipelines is unlimited if an unintended or uncontrolled release of oil, gas or any other commodity from a pipeline that they operate is the result of their fault or negligence;
(c) establishes the limit of liability without proof of fault or negligence at no less than one billion dollars for companies that operate pipelines that have the capacity to transport at least 250,000 barrels of oil per day and at an amount prescribed by regulation for companies that operate any other pipelines;
(d) requires that companies that operate pipelines maintain the financial resources necessary to pay the amount of the limit of liability that applies to them;
(e) authorizes the National Energy Board to order any company that operates a pipeline from which an unintended or uncontrolled release of oil, gas or any other commodity occurs to reimburse any government institution the costs it incurred in taking any action or measure in relation to that release;
(f) requires that companies that operate pipelines remain responsible for their abandoned pipelines;
(g) authorizes the National Energy Board to order companies that operate pipelines to maintain funds to pay for the abandonment of their pipelines or for their abandoned pipelines;
