Le réchauffement climatique, les ressources minières de l’Arctique, la voie de navigation maritime du NW dans l’arctique canadien exigent une surveillance accrue.

Canada’s military wants its next unmanned aircraft system to be cap­able of dropping search-and-rescue sup­plies in the Arctic and in other areas as it looks to expand UAS roles into activities formerly conducted by manned platforms.

Canada plans to spend between CAN $1 billion (US $998 million) and $1.5 billion on a new fleet of UAS.

The Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) Heron unmanned air system (UAS), General Atomics (GA‑ASI) Reaper and Elbit Systems’ Hermes 900 are among three platforms eyed for a Canadian tender to supply an advanced system for  operation in the Arctic. i-hls reports
