Seller's Comments and Description:


La compétition se déroule en deux phases; Phase I est un rapport de conception à remettre le 13 janvier 2017 et Phase II une démonstration opérationnelle du 28 au 30 avril 2017 à Alma, Québec.

Les équipes seront classées sur la qualité et l’intégralité de leur rapport sur la conception et les résultats des démonstrations – il y aura des prix distincts pour chaque phase.

Objectif du concours

L’objectif est de développer et promouvoir l’expertise et l’expérience canadienne en matière de technologie des systèmes télépilotés au niveau des universités et des collèges. Même à petite échelle, les véhicules télépilotés sont des systèmes complexes nécessitant une approche et une conception bien planifiée et exécutée. De plus, la sécurité est un facteur important dans cette compétition comme dans tout autre projet de conception de véhicule.

The purpose of the competition is to promote and develop Canadian expertise and experience in unmanned systems technologies at the university and college levels. Even small scale unmanned vehicles are complex systems requiring a well planned and executed design approach.  In addition, safety considerations are important factors in this competition as in any other vehicle design project.  The students are faced with real life scenarios involving the environment, agriculture, mining, transportation, and oil & gas sectors.

The competition takes place in two phases:

Phase I – a design report from each team due January 13th 2017; and

Phase II – the operational flying demonstration, April 28th – 30th 2017 in Alma QC, north of Quebec City.

Once registered, the team must successfully complete phase l – the design paper, then successfully fly their UAS confirmed in a qualifying video prior to competing in the phase ll. Teams will be graded on the quality and completeness of their design report and the results of the demonstrations – there will be separate prizes for each phase. The format of the competition is designed to be an equal challenge for both fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft.


To be eligible, students must be registered in a full time program at a Canadian university or college. There can be more than one team per school, but each member may only belong to one team.  Participating teams are awarded a cash prize.


Competitions have been held in locations in the east, Quebec and Manitoba, with participation expanding from 3 to 16 teams representing universities and colleges from Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and BC.  To streamline the logistics and maximize participation from coast to coast, the competition host will alternate between the Centre d’exellence sur les drones (CED) and the City of Alma, Québec in 2017 and Southport, Manitoba in the alternate years.


The use of UAS for wildlife monitoring is becoming commonplace particularly in Canada’s vast remote landscape. This year’s real life scenario will do just that.  Each team is a “company” hired to
