Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) undertakes research and analysis and provides advice that assists the Department of National Defence (DND) and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) in making important decisions. DRDC provides integrated science and technology (S&T) advice and technical solutions, performs strategic S&T capability planning, and partners with industry, academia, other government departments (OGDs) and the public safety and national security communities. It delivers solutions for the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces (DND/CAF), as well as the public safety and national security communities. DRDC is seeking industry support for R&D effort in the Command, Control & Intelligence domain. To demonstrate future concepts for ‘Command, Control and Intelligence Capability’, it will be necessary to exploit and develop expertise in a broad range of science and technology areas – within government, industry and academia.

The core objective of this R&D is to advance the state-of-the-art of Command, Control and Information (C2I) methods and resources in order to adapt to and anticipate the new challenges of the CAF.

The work to be performed is the provision of services to DRDC and DND on an as and when required basis to analyse, design, develop, exploit, support and extend the scientific background and knowledge base related to C2I.

The activities set out in the Statement of Work will be authorized through a Task Authorization process and are as follows:

T1 – C2I S&T Capability Integration
