Ryerson’s UAV team participated in the 8th Annual Unmanned Systems Canada UAS Student Competition in Southport, MB from April 29th to May 1st.
Phase 1 of the competition consists of a design report, while Phase 2 is the operational flying demonstration conducted in Manitoba. For more details on the competition scenario, visit here.
A total of 18 teams from across Canada participated in Phase 1 of the competition. However, only 15 teams were represented in Southport for their flying demonstrations. Out of 15 teams, Ryerson UAV placed 9th. Since this was our first competition for the team we were very pleased with our placing and can not wait until we return next year.
