  • Following the announcement of the project earlier in 2019, the construction of Qualia, Canada’s first-ever Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) test center, is well underway
  • Qualia, which will be operational in the spring of 2021, will be structured in three parts: a test site for R&D, a UAV academy offering training programs in sectors related to drones, such as maintenance, manufacturing, image and data analysis, operators of embedded systems, pilot training, systems engineers, etc., as well as a qualification center offering companies the possibility of obtaining a seal confirming their compliance with requirements in various sectors such as public safety, civil security, agriculture, forestry and mining; the oil and gas industry and hydroelectricity
  • This project, valued at $2.4 million, will enable companies in the civil and commercial RPAS sector to validate, in real-life situations, their products and services as well as the results of R&D activities associated with the design of UAV systems
  • Qualia was made possible thanks to the matching financial contribution from the Government of Canada through the Regional Economic Growth through Innovation program of Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions, the Government of Quebec through the Program de soutien aux organismes de recherche et d’innovation following the 2016–2026 Québec Aerospace Strategy, which is aimed at developing the RPAS sector and its civil applications, and the City of Alma
