According to a report in the Ottawa Citizen, the Harper government recently approved a military ‘request to aerospace firms’ to provide details about the types of drones now available in the marketplace.

The ‘request’ pointed out the need for the unmanned aircraft to operate in the Arctic. The aircraft should also be able to carry precision-guided munitions, the government said.

“This capability will allow the CF [Canadian Forces] to fill critical deficiencies,” industry officials were told in the request for information sent to them July 23.
