Prioria has been awarded a $2.8 million contract by Public Works and Government Services Canada for the ISTAR MUAV (intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance miniature unmanned aerial vehicle) program. Under the contract, Prioria will supply the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) and Canadian Forces with the Maveric® unmanned aircraft system (UAS) to fulfill MUAV requirements in Afghanistan and Canada.

Maveric is a small UAS with impressive features such as bendable wings, onboard processing, image stabilization and target tracking. Maveric is considered a next-generation UAS because of its unparalleled abilities, rugged composition and modular payload structure.

"We are pleased with the Canadian government's choice," said Bryan da Frota, Prioria CEO. "I am certain that Maveric will provide the Canadian warfighter with a user-friendly MUAV that will help keep them out of harm's way."
Prioria will supply DND with five Maveric systems for ground support to aid Canada's Operation Athena in Afghanistan.

Prioria has selected ING Engineering of Ottawa, Canada, to provide DND with logistical support.

"ING is proud to provide logistic services to the Canadian Army for the Maveric UAS," said Ian Glenn, president of ING Engineering. "We believe Maveric will help DND's mission in Afghanistan succeed."

Prioria was formed in 2003 with a focus on embedded systems designed to perform sophisticated surveillance and security tasks. With Maveric's debut in 2008, Prioria has continued to build upon the company's original focus with Maveric's success as a next-generation UAS.
