Presagis and Ryerson University Announces Strategic Innovation Partnership to Develop New UAV Technologies

Presagis and Ryerson University are kicking off a strategic innovation partnership to develop new UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) technologies. These research activities are supported by a grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Engage program and will be led by Ryerson University researcher Dr. Joon Chung. The objective of this project is to research and develop reconfigurable UAV instrument panels through the development of virtual UAV Ground Control Stations. The virtual Ground Control Station will explore the potential of supporting multiple UAV applications with switchable instrument panels. In addition to these reconfigurable instrument panels, the research project will also be used to drive user experience enhancements to Presagis' software. Presagis will be involved in every phase of the research and development effort, and will provide University with the complete Presagis Modeling and Simulation software suite, including Creator, Terra Vista, Vega Prime, STAGE, FlightSIM, HeliSIM, and VAPS XT for Simulation. In addition to the in-kind contribution of software, a Presagis software engineer will be directly involved in the development of the proposed UAV instrument panels and virtual Ground Control Stations.
