Ryerson’s UAV team participated in the 9th Annual Unmanned Systems Canada UAS Student Competition in Alma, QC from April 28th to April 30th.
Phase 1 of the competition consists of a design report, while Phase 2 is the operational flying demonstration conducted in Quebec. For more details on the competition scenario, visit here.
A total of 16 teams from across Canada participated in Phase 1 of the competition. We were very pleased to received an Honourable Mention for the first phase of the competition.
However, only 13 teams were present in Alma for their flying demonstrations. Out of 13 teams, Ryerson UAV placed 2nd. This was a huge accomplishment for our team, being only the second time participating in the Phase 2 portion of the competition! We are extremely excited to expand our horizons further and see where our team can go to next!
