Feb. 25, 2015—Unmanned Systems Canada is pleased to release the report Canadian Civil UAS 2014. The report, developed with funding from the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), provides insight into the growth and potential of the UAS sector in Canada.

“It was a pleasure to undertake this work for NRC”, said Stewart Baillie, one of the report's authors. “We found dramatic growth in this sector since 2008, and the potential for Canada to command a global leadership position in the UAS marketplace.”

Included in the report are:

  • An evaluation of the market readiness of various UAS applications
  • A compilation of Canadian Universities that have UAS involvement
  • A listing of over 300 Canadian companies that are involved in the UAS Sector
  • The results of a “stakeholder consultation” with 10 established UAS companies
  • A summary of UAS regulation in Canada, the US and elsewhere (with an update for recent developments)
  • An evaluation of the Civil UAS market and a discussion of other recent evaluations
  • A list of “Key Messages”

The National Research Council of Canada`s contribution to this study report was delivered through its Industrial Research Assistance Program and the Civilian Unmanned Aircraft Systems research Program. Download the NRC Report
