The Department of National Defence and Canadian Armed Forces’ (DND/CAF) Director General Space (DG Space) requires engineering and costing analyses to be conducted on these 3 streams: Constellation Design concept, Data Exploitation concept and Alternate mission type (non-SAR) design concept for space-based surveillance to best meet its requirements, as described in its draft Space-Based Surveillance Requirements document (SBS-RD) version 2.0.

While this requirement is in support of Canada’s Whole-of-Government approach to delivering next-generation Earth Observation capabilities, the requirements listed to support the development of concept studies have been limited to DND/CAF unclassified requirements and priorities at this time. Other Government Departments and Agencies may issue other Requests for Proposals for their own requirements and priorities.

Please contact the contracting authority at to receive the Space-Based Surveillance Requirements document (SBS-RD) version 2.0.
