UBC Okanagan Management Student Consulting Project (MSCP):
X1 Aeronautics is currently conducting a market research project at UBC Okanagan with a group of students from the MSCP program along with support from the Desert Research Institute in Nevada and a Fire Ecologist from R.W. Gray Consulting Ltd. This project will determine the market size and profitability of new innovative technology in order to provide and market platforms and services that will provide a missing communications link for firefighters and other workers in high-risk areas.
UBC Okanagan Engineering Capstone Project:
X1 Aeronautics is also conducting a Capstone project with the School of Engineering at UBC Okanagan. The main objective of this leading-edge project is to create a fixed wing sUAS to support first response crews with BLS radio com and thermal/EO intelligence during early fire season operations. This will involve; creating a sUAS capable of extreme duration, preferably 12+ hours; relaying standard radio communication between command and crew, creating the ability for the sUAS to be re-tasked to collect thermal and EO information when required, and the ability to take off and land in rugged mountain terrain.
