NOTAM Format for UAVs

We have previously discussed NOTAMs and their use within UAV operations and the importance of knowing your airspace and procedures for working safely.  Recently we had some discussions with NAV Canada via the Halifax FIC regarding the format for submitting NOTAMs that involve UAVs. Here are the formats that should be published in the next edition of the NOTAM Procedures Manual.

Vicinity of an aerdrome (within 25nm)
UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE (UAV) OPS RADIUS XX FT CENTRE XXXXN XXXXW (APRX XX NM XX AD) SFC TO XXXXFT AGL  

Using a box or rectangle or other shape
UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE (UAV) ACT WITHIN AREA BOUNDED BY XXXXN XXXXW-XXXXN XXXXW-XXXXN XXXXW-XXXXN XXXXW (APRX XX NM XX AD) SFC TO XXXXFT  AGL

Further than 25nm from an aerodrome
