Abstract
The Canada First Defence Strategy announced that the CP-140 Aurora, Canada’s long-range maritime patrol aircraft, will be replaced by a fleet of Canadian Multi-Mission Aircraft (CMA). This report details analyses provided in support of developing requirements on speed, endurance, and fleet size to enable the CMA to fulfill surveillance and patrol missions. The analysis was repeated to determine the number of Auroras that would require modernization if the acquisition of the CMA were to be delayed, as was announced in February 2014.
