The vision for the Cyber Capability Development Centre (CCDC) is to facilitate science and technology (S&T) research, experimentation, testing, evaluation, demonstration and training activities within the Cyber Operations and Signals Warfare (COSW) section of the Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC)-Ottawa. The CCDC concept is driven by identified research and development (R&D) requirements solicited from the scientific community in the COSW section of DRDC-Ottawa [1]. It was determined, through a business case analysis, that the best way to meet such requirements could be to construct a virtualised infrastructure based on VMware technology. The resulting implementation could provide an agile and effective cyber research infrastructure to meet the CCDC’s original vision. This report documents the overall concept that addresses the DRDC’s cyber S&T research infrastructure needs and functional (business) requirements. The report’s focus is on how the CCDC’s technologies could meet researchers’ needs and in turn provides detailed steps on how the researchers could use the capabilities provided by the CCDC to support their S&T activities. Throughout the report, the CCDC is shown to have the potential for superior time and resource saving capabilities compared to the classical experimentation approaches. The report also outlines how the current CCDC vision could be extended to incorporate classified level II capabilities as well as connectivity with local and i
