The Unmanned Vehicle Centre of Excellence in Medicine Hat is a project led by the Canadian Centre for Unmanned Vehicle Systems (CCUVS). The CCUVS is a not-for-profit company that provides unbiased, joint-use facilities for companies, governments, and universities that want to research, develop, commercialize, test, and evaluate unmanned vehicles for air, ground, or marine use.
