Get informed on the Government of Canada’s Remotely Piloted Aircraft System Project and how Canadian industry and other stakeholders can be best positioned for industrial opportunities

As part of Canada’s defence policy, Strong, Secure, Engaged (SSE), the Department of National Defence has committed to acquiring a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS). This project will acquire a medium altitude and armed RPAS, along with associated equipment, weapons, infrastructure, and in-service sustainment capability.

To discuss details of this procurement, a webinar will be held on June 22, 2020 at 1300 EDT. This is an outstanding opportunity, and we encourage all interested parties to attend this webinar.

Canada’s Industrial and Technology Benefits (ITB) Policy will be applied on this procurement project, requiring the chosen supplier to make investments in Canada equal to the value of the contracts. Qualified Suppliers eligible to bid on this project will be required to propose industrial investments in Canada that align with Value Proposition (VP) strategic objectives.

The webinar will provide a brief to Canadian industry and other stakeholders on the RPAS project, including key information on project requirements, procurement process and project timelines.  The webinar will also be used to familiarize Canadian industry and other stakeholders on the ITB Policy and describe the initial Value Proposition approach. 

It will also describe the next steps on how Canadian stakeholders can provide input and feedback to refine the VP for this project to ensure strong economic benefits for Canada.  This joint presentation will include representatives from the Department of National Defence, Public Services and Procurement Canada and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada.

In addition, the webinar will include brief presentations from the two Qualified Suppliers on the Project: L3 Technologies MAS Inc, and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc.
