The Near Earth Object Surveillance Satellite (NEOSSat) project began in February 2005 with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the Department of National Defence (DND), establishing NEOSSat as a collaboration combining two projects: DND's space surveillance mission HEOSS (High Earth Orbit Space Surveillance) and the CSA's asteroid finding project NESS (Near Earth Space Surveillance). The two missions share the same passive optical sensor payload integrated into a multi-mission microsatellite bus. Each mission, however, is directed and managed by a different science team. Following a competitive process, the NEOSSat development contract, encompassing Phases B, C and D, was awarded to Dynacon in July 2007.
This follow-up report on the implementation of management action plans concludes the internal audit process and outlines the measures taken by the various entities concerned in response to our findings and recommendations. As part of the follow-up process, management action plans are reviewed annually until they are fully implemented, and the extent of implementation is assessed and reported to the Departmental Audit Committee (DAC).
This annual report contains the follow-up findings, as at March 31, 2015, for 12 audit projects, for which reports and management action plans have been submitted to and approved by the DAC.
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 report presents the findings of the evaluation of the Enabling Technology Development Sub-Sub-Program (SSP), which covers the activities of the Space Technology Development Program (STDP) and the services offered by the Intellectual Property Management and Technology Transfer (IPMTT) group.
The objective of this audit is to determine whether a management framework is in place to enable the Program objectives to be achieved and, more specifically, to prevent cost increases, comply with the implementation schedule, and meet users' expectations.
The objective of the audit project was to determine whether the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) has a management framework in place that enables it to achieve its safety and mission assurance objectives.
In 2014/15, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) contracted with the firm Euroconsult, to complete a Comprehensive Socio-Economic Impact Assessment of the Canadian Space Sector. The study provides a detailed assessment of the global and Canadian space sectors, as well as the economic footprint and strategic and social value of Canadian space activities.
"Canada's Space Policy Framework" is focused on delivering results. Building on Canada's strengths and historic achievements, Canada's Space Policy Framework will lay the groundwork to inspire the next generation to pursue studies and careers in science and engineering. It will provide a comprehensive approach to Canada's future in space to ensure our continued commitment to exploration, commercialization and development.
Canada's space sector develops and uses space innovation to respond to national priorities like sovereignty, security and safety, resource management, and environmental monitoring. Its approach focuses on a vibrant interaction between industry, academia and government in order to develop new knowledge, and targeted technologies in niche areas.
This report presents the findings of the Evaluation of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA)'s International Space Station (ISS) Assembly and Maintenance Operations Sub-Sub Program (SSP). The evaluation was conducted between December 2014 and February 2016, covering the time period from March 2008 to March 2015.
