Abstract
The Chief of Research and Development (CRAD) is the national authority for providing defence science and technology leadership to advance and maintain Canada's defence capabilities in support of the Department of National Defence's evolving roles and missions. CRAD is the Department's science and technology problem solver. The paper gives examples of some of the situations and projects that could only be dealt with by CRAD. The examples are presented in three sections: the provision of direct operational support; items that could not be purchased off the shelf; and cooperative work. The examples show how defence science touches on all aspects of the operational requirements of the Canadian Forces whether it be man, machine or man-machine interface.
