Abstract
The Canadian Forces (CF) is implementing capability-based planning (CBP) as its planning structure. An integral part of CBP is a process to structure the development and implementation of the new or changed capabilities required in a constantly changing world. Capabilities are defined to be the potential to achieve a goal within a particular environment. Concepts are the methods by which that potential (capability) is realized. These definitions essentially define a hierarchy with concepts using lower-level realized capabilities to generate higher-level capabilities. Since there may be many different concepts that can generate a capability, proposed concepts require rigorous debate and experimentation before being endorsed to become doctrine. Concept Development and Experimentation (CD&E) is a process for engaging in this process. This report provides a review of CD&E, how it is being implemented across the CF, and makes recommendations for implementing the Maritime Environment’s CD&E capability.
