OCdts. On Parade

22673 Lieutenant Andrew Paul Finnemore (RMC ‘03), Air force spokesman, said a plan outlining what will be done with the Sperwers once they are removed from service in February or March has not yet been completed. He said two types of new drones will meet the military’s UAV needs. Besides the Heron, the government announced earlier in August that the Canadian Forces will lease a smaller UAV for the next nine months at a cost of $14 million. “We expect the Heron, along with the army’s small UAV, to meet the UAV capability,” Lieut. Finnemore said. “The Heron is just a more efficient airframe and we want to dedicate our personnel’s focus to working exclusively with that airframe.” Lieut. Finnemore said there will be some overlap between the two drones as military personnel make sure the leased Herons are up to the job.
