Aeryon Labs Grows in Waterloo Region

Aeryon Labs executives, Sean McCabe, VP Engineering and Ian McDonald, VP Product & Marketing, discuss the growth opportunities for technology companies within Waterloo Region in a recent Reuters article. The following is an excerpt from the printed article:


Police Organizations Worldwide Trial sUAS Programs

Security applications often take place in a confined environment and involve monitoring specific areas of interest - the same is true for uses like forensics and accident reconstruction. While applications, like Search and Rescue, involve looking for very specific targets of interest within a very large area. The ability to use sUAS in all of these examples is extremely beneficial to any public safety organization.


GRIDLOCK: OPP testing drones to help speed up major crash scene probes

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are using unmanned aerial systems (UAS) to test alternative methods for collecting photos and evidence at the scene of traffic accidents on provincial roadways and highways. This article in the Hamilton Spectator describes how the OPP is using UAS in Hamilton and surrounding areas.


Waterloo technology allows OPP to better capture collision scenes

WATERLOO — There was a time when unmanned aerial robots were the stuff of science fiction, or at least of James Bond and Robert Ludlum. Now, the OPP is using them to photograph accident scenes.

The OPP's Highway Safety Division, which includes the Cambridge detachment that polices the Conestoga Parkway, highways 401 and 7-8 and other major highways in the region, is using two of the sophisticated robots to get a precise, bird's-eye view of serious collisions.


Canadian technology and the flight of the drones

When Libyan rebels marched on Tripoli in 2011, a Canadian drone led the way.

The unmanned aircraft, a product of a company called Aeryon Labs based in Waterloo, Ont., sliced slowly over the landscape, mapping the terrain and sending valuable tactical information to the soldiers. Six months later, a similar scene played out in perhaps the polar opposite setting, as an Aeryon craft hummed across the Bering Sea, relaying ice conditions ahead of a Russian tanker dispatched to deliver vital fuel to the town of Nome, Alaska, which had been caught off guard by an early winter.
