A company in Iqaluit, Nunavut, is hoping to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones for more than recreational uses. Arctic UAV is hoping to use drones equipped with infrared and thermal cameras for applications like surveying, mapping, research and search and rescue operations.

The drones are designed for industrial use and capable of carrying heavier specialized cameras than hobby drones. Some can fly up to 20 hours.

Arctic UAV will be looking to hire pilots, technicians, and data managers capable of processing their videos, photos and data.
