Civilian Unmanned Aircraft Systems program

Unmanned aviation systems have the potential to accomplish tasks faster, safer and more reliably than their manned equivalents. The Civilian Unmanned Aircraft Systems (CivUAS) program proactively aims to develop, advance, de-risk and certify innovative UAS solutions for key industrial sectors in Canada.

With a proven ability to partner with industry on research and technology development across multiple disciplines, the CivUAS program plays an important role in supporting the emergence of unmanned flight into the commercial aviation sector. The program further offers an unmatched technology infrastructure and complementary technical expertise that will foster the integration of UAS technology into key sectors such as oil and gas, defence and security, agriculture, natural resources and critical infrastructure environment.
