Abstract
In Phase I of the Maritime RPV study, Boeing of Canada, Winnipeg Division (BOCW) was tasked to recommend an off the shelf, proven air vehicle that could be used as a research platform for investigations of seaborne remotely piloted vehicles (RPV's). BOCW recommended the Target Technologies Limited (TTL) BANSHEE for this purpose. In May of 1986, BOCW was tasked by the Defence Research Establishment Suffield (DRES) to acquire and modify one BANSHEE airframe for compatibility with the DRES developed PEGASUS command and control system and payload packages. At present, BOCW has integrated one vehicle and flown it twice, developed a braking system for the BOCW launcher and designed a compact video camera mount. The first BANSHEE flight was a success, providing useful engineering data. On the second flight, the vehicle crashed after launch.
