Information: New Proposal

For DAG 2016

Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


To recapitalize the current Five-Eyes sified research and development collaborative capability until it is replaced by an (operationally capable) Agency–wide system.


Five-Eyes classified research and development collaborative capability has been developed over the years to support Science and Technology activities executed under the Square Dance Memorandum of Understanding. This capability is a key enabler for strategic, sensitive and classified collaborative work with the Square Dance Allies. A Canadian partition of this capability has been developed to support the Joint Force Development and Force Employment Portfolios and enable collaborative Science and Technology within the Space-based Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance; Space Operations; and Joint Intelligence programs. This capability is the means to deliver on Canada's obligations with our allied partners.
