Two Memorandums of Understanding signed in order to expand winter weather testing opportunities in Thompson

Two Memorandums of Understanding were signed earlier this week at the Winter Weather Testing Campus at the local airport in Thompson.


The first was between SubZero North and the Transport Canada Innovation Centre to solidify their partnership in continuing to help fund and test new innovations, with SubZero North opening itself up as one of their testing hubs.


There was also a signing between University College of the North and Mohawk College, which is based in Hamilton, Ontario.


Mohawk College was up in Thompson this week testing drones for Skygauge Robotics, and also trained a few northern Manitobans to be drone pilots as a way to expand the types of technology that can be weather-tested in the area.


This comes as SubZero North bought the testing facility from Ford late last year.
