    Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut Col (RCAF) Jeremy Hansen has been named as the first Canadian assigned to fly a deep space mission, part of NASA’s Artemis II crewed test flight to the Moon. The lunar fly-past mission is currently scheduled to launch from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center in November 2024.

    Hansen has been assigned as mission specialist 2 and is proceeding with early-stage preparations alongside three American crewmates — Capt (U.S. Navy) Reid Wiseman will be flying in the role of commander, Capt (U.S. Navy) Victor Glover in the role of pilot, and NASA astronaut Christina Koch in the role of mission specialist 1.

    While Hansen has provided critical support to dozens of international missions and on-orbit projects since first donning the classic blue flight suit of the astronaut corps, Artemis II will be his first flight to the stars. He was selected as an astronaut candidate in 2009, part of Canada’s third recruitment campaign. Through a rigorous, multi-month evaluation phase, he and David Saint-Jacques were identified to be strongest from a pool of over 5,300 applicants. Saint-Jacques flew to the International Space Station (ISS) in the role of flight engineer on Expeditions 57, 58, and 59.

    Society of Experimental Test Pilots

    Canadian Section Symposium
    Call for Papers

    The CASI Flight Test and Flight Operations (FT&FO) Section is pleased to share a call for papers issued by the Canadian Section of The Society of Experimental Test Pilots (SETP) for their Symposium to be held in Ottawa, Ontario on June 7, 2023. CASI Members are encouraged to save the date and consider attending the Symposium. Registration details will be published and shared in due course.

    SETP Canada and CASI FT&FO share similar interests. The format of the SETP Symposium is presentations only, whereas CASI accepts papers for publication in the CASI Journal.

    CASI members are therefore encouraged to submit presentations here


    The Third Annual Canadian Section Symposium will be held on 7 June 2023 at the Hilton Garden Inn Ottawa Airport, 2400 Alert Rd, Ottawa, Ontario. This year’s Symposium Chairman is Perry Comeau (AF), National Research Council for Canada.

    This is an official call for papers. Each technical presentation is given a 30-minute slot (25 minutes for the technical presentation and 5 minutes for questions from the audience). No proceedings will be published for this Symposium, therefore formal written papers are not required.

    Those interested in presenting should submit an abstract by 11 April 2023 to: Tammy@setp.org

    Technological Advancements in Urban Remote Sensing

    The continued unprecedented development and growth in the urban population has placed an emphasis on many aspects, such as environmental impact, sustainable development, and public services. Currently, urban environments around the world are actively involved in obtaining solutions to improve inhabitants’ quality of life as well as enrich the use of city infrastructure and resources while reducing the operational costs to do so. Urban remote sensing plays a vital role in the ability to map, monitor and control infrastructure. Benefiting from data-driven, model-driven or hybrid approaches, remote sensing can contribute significantly to future urban planning and management. Variant sensors mounted on mobile, airborne, and satellite platforms, along with devices with IoT capabilities, are required for effective coordination and control of urban infrastructure.

    Urban remote sensing had its origins decades ago. However, the changes in technological advancements in sensors and methods, along with a considerable amount of data provided on a daily basis, give rise to the opportunity to investigate novel avenues of research in this area. Technological advancements in this field include improvements in imaging sensors as well as data processing methods, including learning systems (artificial intelligence and machine learning).

    This updated collection of articles will drive the next generation of urban remote sensing. Submissions on the following sub-topics are encouraged:

    • Advances in remote sensor Big Data analytics for urban environments and Smart Cities
    • Frontiers in security, privacy, and trust in sensor-based urban environments and IoT
    • Machine Learning and AI Techniques in urban Remote Sensing
    • Change detection in urban areas using multi-sensor solutions
    • 3D modelling of urban infrastructure and urban Digital Twins
    • Multi-modal mapping systems and their applications in urban areas
    • Application of imagery data from novel Remote Sensing sensors or platforms for urban land information extraction
