Arctic RPAS RFP Extended to October 17

Do you manufacture or operate a long-range RPAS suitable for Beyond Visual Line of Sight surveillance in the Arctic? 

If so, you may well be interested in an RFP that’s still open (and, in fact, has just been extended), from Public Works and Government Service Canada. In a nutshell, the details read like this:

“Transport Canada (TC) requires a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) that is capable of operation Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS). TC will operate the RPAS as a proof of concept in order to evaluate RPAS technology to support the National Aerial Surveillance Program (NASP) in conjunction with the existing fleet of manned surveillance aircraft to maintain persistent domain awareness in Canada’s Arctic.”

This is a tremendous opportunity for the right operator with the appropriate RPAS.

There’s more fine print, of course, and you can find it – along with details for application – here
