Abstract
In 1995, the Air Command Ottawa Office tasked DAOR to update the study to determine where new CASARA units could be sited to provide the maximum benefit to the SAR system and the Department of National Defence. A methodology, very similar to the one employed in the 1976 study, was utilized to assess the demand for SAR service and the coverage provided by the current CASARA organization. The entire geographic area of Canadian SAR interest was assessed and prioritized with respect to future CASARA unit formation. High demand areas outside of current CASARA coverage were determined to be in northern British Columbia, the Yukon Territory, and the southwestern Northwest Territories. A second region of lesser priority was identified in central Quebec, spanning the area south of Hudson Bay to the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, and extending north into Labrador.
