Found 10 records similar to Evaluation of the Near Earth Object Surveillance Satellite (NEOSSat) Project
The dataset includes the astronomical images from the Near-Earth Object Surveillance Satellite (NEOSSat). NEOSSat was launched on February 25, 2013 and it is the first space satellite dedicated to detecting and tracking asteroids and satellites. The suitcase-sized NEOSSat orbits at an altitude of approximately 780 kilometres above the Earth, searching for near-Earth asteroids that are difficult to spot using ground-based telescopes. Because of its lofty location, it is not limited by the day-night cycle and can operate 24/7.
During the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 fiscal years, the Audit and Evaluation Directorate of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) conducted an evaluation of the Earth Observation Data and Imagery Utilization Program. This evaluation project was chosen because of this program's strategic importance in attaining the CSA's priorities. The evaluation covers the period from April 1, 2005 to March 31, 2010.
This report presents the findings of the evaluation of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA)' Sun-Earth Science Business Line (SESS-BL). The SESS-BL's fundamental purpose is to support Canada's contribution to the advancement of the scientific knowledge concerning the Sun-Earth system, and the application of this scientific knowledge in a range of policy areas such as weather forecasting, environmental monitoring, climate change, natural disaster management and mitigation, and the protection of private and public infrastructures in space and on Earth. The evaluation covers a five-year period, from April 1, 2012 to March 31, 2017, and examines the SESS-BL's relevance and performance. The evaluation was conducted by PRA Inc., on behalf of the CSA's Audit and Evaluation Directorate, between September 2017 and September 2018.
The mandate of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is "to promote the peaceful use and development of space, to advance the knowledge of space through science and to ensure that space science and technology provide social and economic benefits for Canadians."Footnote 1 Established in March 1989, with a status equivalent to that of a Department of the Government of Canada, the CSA is responsible for the coordination and implementation of space policies and programs, the application and diffusion of space technology, and the promotion of commercial exploitation of space.
The CSA Audit and Evaluation Directorate commissioned the services of Science-Metrix to undertake an Evaluation of CSA's Space Astronomy Missions (SAM) and Planetary Missions (PM) programs as per the Five-Year Departmental Evaluation Plan and in accordance with the 2016 Treasury Board of Canada's Policy on Results.Footnote 2 The evaluation was conducted during the 2017–2018 fiscal year, under the direction of the CSA's Audit and Evaluation Directorate (specifically, the CSA's Evaluation function) and covers the period from 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2016.
This report presents the findings of the summative evaluation of the Space Technology Development Program (STDP) for the period of fiscal year 2002/03 to fiscal year 2007/08. The evaluation was undertaken to respond to a 2005 CSA internal audit that recommended that a review of STDP service delivery be undertaken. The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) engaged Government Consulting Services (GCS) to undertake the evaluation. The primary objective of the STDP is to develop and demonstrate strategic technologies and mission concepts that have a strong potential for having a positive impact on meeting the future needs of the Canadian Space Program and the growth of the Canadian space industry.
This report presents the findings of the evaluation of the Implementation of Gender-Based Analysis Plus
practices at Canadian Space Agency (CSA) since the CSA’s GBA+ Policy
took effect in 2017. This is the first thematic evaluation at the CSA and it was carried out by the CSA’s Audit and Evaluation
Directorate between January 2020 and March 2021. This evaluation is included in the CSA's five-year
Evaluation Plan and was conducted in accordance with the Treasury Board of Canada's Policy on Results
(2016). The concept of GBA Plus is not new to the federal government and has existed for decades through the
principles of gender equality.
This report presents the findings of the evaluation of the Space Capacity Development Program (hereafter referred to as the "SCDP") implemented by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). This is the first evaluation of this program, and it was carried out by the CSA's Audit and Evaluation Directorate between September 2018 and March 2020, with the support of PRA Inc. This evaluation is included in the CSA's five-year Evaluation Plan and was conducted in accordance with the Treasury Board of Canada's Policy on Results (2016).
The CASSIOPE Contribution Program was authorized for a five-year period on October 30, 2003. The project was extended due to the launch of the satellite being postponed several times. The launch took place in September 2013. The CASSIOPE mission combines three program elements: it provides for the integration of two payloads, the Cascade telecommunications demonstration payload and the Enhanced Polar Outflow Probe (ePOP) scientific payload, on a single generic Canadian small satellite (smallsat) bus.
This report contains the findings of the Evaluation of the Qualifying and Testing Services Program of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). The David Florida Laboratory (DFL), located in Ottawa, Ontario, is the main mechanism through which the program is delivered. This program carries out specialized activities and services for the assembly, integration and testing (AIT) of space hardware (e.g., satellites and components) on behalf of the CSA and external clients, both in Canada and internationally. The program exists to ensure that mission-assigned technology and entire systems can safely and reliably meet the rigours of space.
This document constitutes the final evaluation report of the Canadian Space Agency's (CSA) Advanced Exploration Technology Development (AETD) program. The evaluation was conducted during the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 fiscal years by the CSA's Audit and Evaluation Directorate (specifically, the CSA's Evaluation function) in response to the Treasury Board of Canada's (TB) Policy on Evaluation (2009a), which requires that all federal government programs be evaluated every five years. The evaluation covers the period from 2008-2009 to 2012-2013.
