Abstract
The Department of National Defence has a long history of support for the use of space systems to meet National Defence requirements. This use is based on Defence Management Committee guidance for military space activities approved by Cabinet in 1974. The key principles of this guidance are the use of space systems, where most effective, and the development of Canadian industry to support National Defence objectives. These principles have been reiterated in the recently approved DND Space Policy and have been supported by the department's White Paper entitled, "Challenge and Commitment". Although this Defence Policy paper touches on various aspects of space systems such as search and rescue, space object identification etc, of particular interest is the strong emphasis on satellite based communications and space based surveillance to meet future CF needs.
