Snyper drone clears path for future systems

October 12, 2018 – The Royal Canadian Navy is operating in an increasingly complex environment, and is monitoring the potential of future innovations to keep its defense systems and strategies ahead of the curve so that potential threats do not become dangerous realities. One of the current innovations the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) is testing are micro and mini drones. Drones are a threat that has evolved over time. As they get smaller and harder to detect, and as they gain new capabilities like the ability to connect multiple drones…

RCN on Track to Acquire Unmanned Aircraft Systems

The Director of Naval Requirements (DNR) is leading the first phase of the Unmanned System programme with the acquisition of a family of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) that can be operated from all Canadian Warships in order to provide near real-time intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) information. Over the last decade, the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) has maintained its course in investigating and developing a robust Unmanned System program. As a force multiplier, the UAS will provide information required to extend a commander’s situational awareness, increase interoperability with…
