NAV Canada Signs Agreement With UTM Provider Unifly

In the continuing race for the major UTM providers to establish relationships with existing legacy based installed air traffic control systems,  NAV CANADA and Unifly have just signed an agreement for Unifly to develop, train and implement an unmanned traffic management (UTM) system that will be integrated into the Canada civil air navigation systems.

“After a thorough analysis of the market, we selected Unifly based on their advanced technology and proven track record in numerous countries. The new app is a key component of our national drone strategy and will further our dedication to air traffic safety and technological innovation in Canadian airspace,” said Mark Cooper, Senior Vice President, ANS Technology, NAV CANADA.

“As one of the most innovative and world’s safest Air Navigation Service Providers, NAV CANADA has a deep understanding of the challenges that developing and implementing complex traffic management systems bring,” said Marc Kegelaers, CEO of Unifly.

“We are, therefore, very proud that NAV CANADA decided to partner with Unifly and strongly feel this agreement is a recognition of the value of our strategy. These past years we have not only developed our product but also organized our entire company to become the ideal partner for national Air Navigation Service Providers and Civil Aviation Authorities.”

Unifly is part of the Terra Drone Corporation portfolio of Drone companies.

NAV CANADA has entered into an agreement with Japan-based Terra Drone Corporation’s portfolio company, Unifly, to help drone pilots plan future missions. As a strategic technology partner to NAV CANADA, Unifly will facilitate the deployment of a national system that would provide digital services for safely operating and managing drones in the Canadian airspace.

With an intuitive user interface, Unifly’s system would enable Canadian drone pilots to access web and mobile applications to identify safe and legal airspace, plan flights, manage operations, pilots and fleet of drones. This fully digitized system will make the process of requesting authorization to fly in controlled airspace easier and faster for qualified drone pilots. The app will also benefit airlines and general aviation pilots by reducing the risk of accidental drone incursions. Both the website and the mobile app will be available in French and English languages.

NAV CANADA has an essential role to play in developing an operating environment that supports the innovative potential of the drone industry and ensures safety across Canadian airspace. Unifly’s system enables NAV CANADA to do that by supporting all current regulations for drone flights within the visual line of sight.

“After a thorough analysis of the market, we selected Unifly based on their advanced technology and proven track record in numerous countries.  The new app is a key component of our national drone strategy and will further our dedication to air traffic safety and technological innovation in Canadian airspace,” said Mark Cooper, Senior Vice President, ANS Technology, NAV CANADA.
