Abstract
The Technology Demonstration Program (TDP) is intended to provide a vehicle to demonstrate the feasibility, capability and utility of advanced technologies under development within Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) and Canadian Industry. Each year several proposals are submitted to the TDP for approval. This research note documents the development of the TDP Proposal Selection Process and focuses on the work done toward the improvement of the methodology used to evaluate new nominations. We discuss several changes incorporated in 2003. We explain how Fundamental Investigation of Defence Objectives (FIDO), a decision support tool, was used to rank the proposals and we report the results obtained with the tool. Finally, we discuss a survey that was designed to measure the evaluators' satisfaction with the new selection process.
