MDA to support Canadian DND UAV solution

22nd April 2014 - 12:11 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates (MDA) has been awarded a CA$5 million contract by the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) to provide support for the Raven-B unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) ordered by the DND in October 2013.

The contract will see the company support the UAV solution it agreed to supply in 2013, according to MDA. At that time MDA was contracted for the delivery of the AeroVironment Raven-B UAV, MDA’s full-motion video exploitation tools, training, maintenance, and support services.

The agreement includes options for incremental activities up to an additional CA$11 million.

The AeroVironment RQ-11B Raven UAV is a lightweight solution designed for rapid deployment and high mobility for military applications requiring low-altitude surveillance and reconnaissance intelligence.
