Draganflyer UAVs Featured in Two Articles in Canadian Aviator Magazine’s July/August Issue

Draganfly Innovations in July August 2014 Canadian Aviator

Draganfly Innovations’ line of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) continue to make the press continually, as the range of applications for use increases. In the July/August 2014 issue of Canadian Aviator Magazine, the Draganflyer X4-ES is featured in two articles outlines how the Draganflyer UAVs are being used in the Public Safety And Agricultural sectors.

The first article titled “Drones on the J.O.B.” reviews the background of UAV usage with the Ontario Provincial Police. The O.P.P. and Draganfly Innovations have a long history history together, as the Draganflyer X6 was procured in 2009 for Public Safety Applications. Since then, the O.P.P. has become one of the North Americans leaders in UAV usage, and has recently upgraded their systems to the Draganflyer X4-ES Ultra Portable.

The second article titled “UAV Industry Making Process” speaks of the Draganflyer X4-ES being utilized at the FAA Approved Testing Site in North Dakota. The Draganflyer X4-ES, equipped with Tetracam ADC Micro Multi-spectral Camera, will demonstrate precision agriculture techniques, checking soil quality and crop status. Data taken from the test site will also include “safety-related operational data”, which will assist in forming regulations for the integration of UAVs into controlled airspace.

Draganflyer X4-ES UAV Demonstrated at UAS Action Summit in Grand Forks, North Dakota

Draganflyer X4-ES with Tetracam ADC Micro

June 24, 2014 — The Draganflyer X4-ES UAV, procured by Northern Plains UAS Test Site, was demonstrated to an audience at the UAS Action Summit being held at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks, North Dakota. A hostage scene and an accident scene were two scenarios created for the Draganflyer X4-ES to show its capabilities of reconnaissance and evidence recording.

Public Safety applications are not the only use for unmanned systems, as 75 percent of future use in civilian airspace is expected to involve agriculture. The Draganflyer X4-ES could help farmers by using images taken from above, offering still photography, video, infrared, and multispectral payloads which will help analyze heat, nutients or water content of their crops.

Draganfly Innovations Donates Draganflyer X6 to Canadian Aviation and Space Museum.

Draganflyer X6 at Canadian National Aviation and Space Museum

Draganfly Innovations has donated a Draganflyer X6 small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) to the Canadian National Aviation Museum in Ottawa. The Draganflyer X6 has been officially recognized as a historic aviation artifact as the first commercial UAV to enter full-time service in Canadian Civil Airspace.

Marc Sharpe of the Ontario Provincial Police, who operated the Draganflyer X6 on display, was part of many aviation firsts, including:

  • The Draganflyer X6 was the 1st commercial UAV system to receive federal approval to enter a full-time role in civilian airspace in North America. This was accomplished in January 2009.
  • That same month, the Draganflyer X6 successfully completed its 1st operational mission.
  • In March of that same year, the Draganflyer X6 became the 1st UAV to successfully complete an operational mission in an urban environment in Kenora, Ontario.
  • Every time the Draganflyer X6 flew in the 1st year of service, it essentially set an aviation first for a UAV operating in civilian airspace:
    • 1st tactical assist deployment, providing valuable situational awareness to aid in public and officer safety.
    • Assisting with search of isolated areas for missing persons.
    • Assisting with the Coroner Death investigations.
    • A world 1st was achieved with deployment at a crash scene involving hazardous materials. HAZMAT team was provided area situational awareness to help determine potential area of contamination. This accident took place on the Trans-Canada Highway.

Please visit the “Techno Zone: Eye in the Sky” exhibit at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum to see the Draganflyer X6.
