QinetiQ Target Systems, a leading UAV manufacturer in Canada, and Canadian UAVs (CUAVs), Canada’s leading unmanned aviation solutions provider for enterprise and military applications, have announced that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) outlining how the two companies will work together to bring combined ‘best of breed’ solutions for military and commercial markets in Canada.
The agreement focuses on providing services to clients requiring long range, endurance and payload capacity primarily with the Skeldar V200, Mosquito UHV-T Group 2 UAV and the class 1 UAV Snyper.
With manufacturing and operations facilities in Medicine Hat and Calgary, as well as satellite locations across the country including at major naval bases on both coasts, the partnership is perfectly placed to provide direct services for both the commercial, civil and military markets in Canada.
“We are thrilled to partner with CUAVs,” said Vincent Malley, director of business development at QinetiQ Target Systems. “CUAVs provides outstanding UAV services and expertise, and we are confident that this partnership will meet and exceed the requirements of our existing and new UAV clients in Canada. We are also actively pursuing export opportunities to further leverage our joint capabilities.”
“Canadian UAVs is delighted to be working closely with QinetiQ Target Systems,” said Sean Greenwood, president and CEO of Canadian UAVs. “They have been a UAV provider to the military for over three decades, and we believe our current and future clients will benefit greatly from our comprehensive combined capacity and expertise.
“We are very excited for the future of unmanned aviation in Canada, and we believe this joint offering will have significant positive implications for the further advance of this industry.”
