Canadian UAVs Becomes an Authorized Reseller of Lockheed Martin’s Small UAS

Canadian UAVs (CUAVs) has signed an agreement with Lockheed Martin (LM) that appoints CUAVs as an authorized reseller in Canada for LM’s family of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) and ground control station software.

CUAVs has been a user of the Indago quadrotor (a 5 lb, back-packable, all-weather system) for commercial, civil, and military applications since 2016. This system has been the workhorse of our fleet. We have also amalgamated much of our fleet into the Lockheed Martin VCSi common control solution which allows for fleet wide compatibility in our operations.

“We identified Lockheed Martin early on as a true ‘commercial grade’ aviation provider for UAS. In the past five years we have grown together to take on many industrial and military challenges. This announcement just formalizes a relationship that has been building for half a decade” – Sean Greenwood, Canadian UAVs President

“We are pleased to welcome Canadian UAVs into our family of resellers. They have pioneered and proven Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) capability for small UAS and are pushing other technological boundaries for the broader utility of small UAS. We look forward to continuing to support them with our UAS product line and control systems software and growing our presence both in Canada and around the world.” Steve Fortson, Lockheed Martin General Manager for LM Procerus Technologies and CDL Systems

CUAVs will begin bundling Lockheed Martin aircraft with our SparrowhawkTM radar system, combined within our comprehensive military training program.

“Operating a UAV in and out of civil airspace requires high levels of airmanship, process, and technology. By pairing our Transport Canada approved Sparrowhawk Radar with Indago, we can offer a complete training solution for the Department of National Defence at the Foremost UAS Test Range. This is a one stop shop for military and government users of UAS to get recognized training here in Canada.” – Sean Greenwood, Canadian UAVs President

Under the Reseller agreement, Canadian UAVs has permission to sell and service the Indago, Condor fixed wing, and Vector Hawk sUAS, as well as the VCSi Family of Systems, 3DTRM, and Northstar software products, within Canada.
