Unmanned Aircraft Systems – Proof-of-Concept Trials into
Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight Operations
Request for Concepts of Operations

Transport Canada (TC) invites innovators in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to propose beyond visual
line-of-sight (BVLOS) operations for proof-of-concept trials in 2018 that will advance Canada into the next
frontier of UAS. Consistent with the Government of Canada’s Budget 2017 commitments to work with
industry to establish pilot projects to evaluate new UAS technologies, TC is seeking to collaboratively
explore the safe deployment of UAS in BVLOS operations, and is suggesting four use-cases to inform
industry’s development of Concepts of Operations.
