Ottawa, ON, August 16, 2019 – Romaeris Corporation is pleased to announce the company’s admission to the $2 million UAS Training, Innovation, and Leadership Initiative (UTILI). Funds will be used for Romaeris and other project partners to train engineers and scientists in the safe and effective operation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in commercial applications over the next six years, starting immediately. The Initiative includes five universities and a cluster of companies that will design UAS missions for delivery of goods, geophysics, forestry, agriculture, and other applications. The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) is providing $1.65 million of project funding with the balance coming from other government sources.
In addition, Anthony Pizarro, President of Romaeris, has been named to the Program Committee of UTILI that will provide strategic direction and oversight of the Initiative.
“We are pleased with the ongoing support of the Canadian government for path-breaking UAS applications, and look forward to designing new types of commercial missions with our collaborators,” said Mr. Pizarro.
