ING Robotic Aviation, a Canadian provider of robotic aircraft sensing solutions, has opened a new facility in Ottawa, Ontario.
The new space re-purposes traditional suburban commercial facilities to produce a creative, integrated working environment that combines sales, marketing, operations production, and research and development into a cohesive whole, the company says.
From its start in the military sector, ING Robotic Aviation – which is based in Ottawa – now has a focus on the emerging opportunities for the provision of new services and products in the global commercial sector for unmanned aircraft. The company provides products and services for aerial mapping, inspections and monitoring.
‘We are excited to officially open our new facility in Ottawa,’ says Ian Glenn, CEO of ING Robotic Aviation. ‘This gives a focal point for our production and operations, as well as a home for the back room functions. What it represents is the further development of a homegrown high-tech company that is already developing technology, creating jobs and exporting products. This is another step in our move into the commercial market.’
The Hon. James Moore, the Minister of Industry, officially opened the new 4,000 square-feet office space. Industry Canada, through The National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program, provides significant support for the development of ING Robotic Aviation's robotic aircraft systems.
‘Our government's top priority is creating jobs and opportunities in our communities,” says Moore. “That's why we have steadily increased direct support for research and development to help Canadian companies commercialize their innovative product throughout the planet.”
