Canadian UAVs Approved to Conduct First Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Pipeline Monitoring in Canadian Civil Airspace

CALGARY – Canadian UAVs (CUAVS), Canada’s leading unmanned aviation solutions provider for enterprise and military applications, is proud to announce its approval issued by Transport Canada to inspect remote oil and gas assets ‘beyond line of sight’ for environmental integrity in civilian airspace. The project, which is based at Canadian UAVs testing facility west of Calgary Alberta, will enable CUAVS to validate its proprietary technology and advanced ‘airline grade’ safety infrastructure at scale. This novel project is in collaboration with Canada’s largest oil and gas companies which will provide direct feedback on data output from the trials.

“Canadian UAVs is an aviation first, unmanned airline company which has been working with local and federal stakeholders, to commercially scale up our remote asset monitoring services. We are pleased to announce today that our efforts to institutionalize this technology safely in civil airspace, have been recognized and rewarded by the federal regulator. Our ability to reduce costs of inspection for our clients will lead to greater understanding of remote assets and their environmental conditions. This is a massive achievement for our team and stakeholders, proving that Canada is a world leader in environmentally conscious resource development and aerospace technology,” said Sean Greenwood, President, and CEO of Canadian UAVs (“CUAVs”).

Project Highlights:

  • The first of its kind Transport Canada permitted civilian airspace BVLOS trials
  • The Largest up-stream and mid-stream oil and gas companies as stakeholders
  • Industry wide standard operating procedures for BVLOS oil and Gas operations
  • Industry inspection data output standardization
