The Airborne Surveillance Concepts 2010 project is sponsored by the Director, Science and Technology Air, and supported by the Thrust Leader, Airborne Surveillance. The purpose of the project is to propose advanced surveillance concepts to contribute to Air Force operations after the 2010. The aim of the project is to anticipate the availability of future technologies to support long-term planning by the Canadian Forces, to stimulate discussion of new concepts of operations and doctrine, and to provide guidance for activities within the Defence Research and Development Branch (DRDB). This interim report reviews government policy, departmental guidance, and related initiatives in allied countries. It discusses the future surveillance needs of the Canadian Forces and presents a concept airborne surveillance system to address these needs. The potential role of the Defence Research and Development Branch is discussed in realizing the objectives of the system. Future work includes consultation with client groups in the Canadian Forces and with DRDB staff to validate the future surveillance needs and to enhance the capabilities of the concept airborne surveillance system.
