USC’s 10th Annual Student UAV Competition Scenario

10th Annual Unmanned Systems Canada – National Student UAV Competition 

May 4-6th 2018 Southport, Manitoba

More details have been released about ‘the UAV Student Competition Scenari0’
This is a “made in Canada” Simulated BVLOS UAS Student Competition Challenge.

In this year’s scenario, law enforcement has been called to the scene of a suspected bike gang operation in a remote farm building.  They believe that the building contains several members, a large supply of drugs and weapons, and is defended.  Officers are reluctant to approach the house, which has no protected avenue of approach, without a good understanding of the threat.

Your UAS company has been called to support the operation.  You will be required to:

  • Conduct aerial surveillance of the property
  • Deliver a remote listening device to a location on the property, based on results of the surveillance
  • Search a large area adjacent to the property for vital pieces of evidence
  • Provide reports to the USC Judges to document your findings

Good luck to the 12 teams from across Canada – and the 130 students who’ll respond to the challenge this year in Southport, MB!
