Abstract
Growing interest among Canada’s allies in the field of Technology Insertion suggests a paradigm shift is underway in the way in which militaries develop and employ technology for use with their defence systems. Drivers such as a dynamic future security environment, rapid technological innovation and rising unit cost growth can significantly erode the combat effectiveness of deployed systems over the length of their lifecycle. Achieving optimal through-life capability effectiveness, lowered costs of ownership and a minimized risk of system obsolescence are three primary goals for which Technology Insertion can be optimized. This Technical Memorandum investigates the theoretical concepts of Technology Insertion, its practice among Canada’s allies and, finally, provides some methodological tools necessary for an optimization-based, cost-benefit analysis of Technology Insertion options.
