OTTAWA, May 28, 2014 - ING Robotic Aviation is conducting ScanEagle unmanned aerial vehicle operations for Exercise Maple Resolve 2014, 5 May to 1 June 2014 at Wainwright Garrison, Alberta. This work is being done in support of 4 Air Defence Regiment.
The company’s Operators and Systems Maintainers are ensuring 24/7 “eyes in the sky” for units deployed for combat training exercises. This work is the same as ING Robotic Aviation staff have been conducting continuously since 2008 with the Canadian Armed Forces, in Afghanistan and with operationally-deployed naval units.
“I continue to be very proud of the work our guys are doing in the field,” said Ian Glenn, CEO/CTO of ING Robotic Aviation. “On ops or on training, we are always there for the Canadian Armed Forces”.
Exercise Maple Resolve 2014 is a large exercise for Canada’s high readiness units. 4500 Canadian troops are involved, plus American and British forces. They are sharpening their skills in a realistic and difficult environment at the Canadian Manoeuvre Training Centre. The ultimate goal of this exercise is to ensure a high level of preparedness for Canadian units designated as a high readiness Task Force for short notice deployment.
