Mohawk establishes new RPAS research site


Mohawk College’s Unmanned and Remote Sensing Innovation Centre (URSIC) has established a new research site for remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) through a three-year agreement with the City of Hamilton. The location is secure, designated as an uncontrolled airspace; and positioned near transportation networks, water, industrial land, and harbour. It will be a regional hub for RPAS research and development. Mohawk and Transport Canada’s Innovation Centre have also signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) which will allow the two to collaborate on RPAS research and drone product testing. “Having a designated space that offers a variety of environments will allow URSIC researchers to assist industry partners across a number of important economic sector,” said Mohawk VP, Academic Dr Cebert Adamson.
