Abstract
Since World War II the types of demand for operational research in Canadian defence have gradually changed. Formerly confined to the selection of weapons and their tactical application, interest broadened into analytical studies of logistics and manpower. Then activity was extended to include international strategic studies, and at present there is a developing interest in research on the effects of defence activities and also on the Canadian economy and on Canadian society. In order to meet these new demands ORAE has had to expand its field of academic competence to include not only the traditional 'hard sciences' but also political science, economics and other 'social sciences'. The report contains resumes of some of the projects in ORAE related to these new fields, and a list of the more relevant unclassified DRAE publications.
