AIAC 20132014 Guide to Canadas Aerospace Industry

Message from the Chair


Over the past several years, there has been
a great deal of discussion and dialogue
within Canadian aerospace when it comes
to the future of our industry and its place in
the world. Global forecasts have indicated
significant, sustained growth in demand
for aircraft in the coming decades, and
changing trends in aerospace on the
global level are affecting the way we do
business today. As the North continues
to open up, our space sector will be at
the heart of developing new technologies
to keep Canada secure and help all of us communicate in a global
environment. We have challenged ourselves and our partners to
critically evaluate how these global transformations will affect our
industry and what we as Canadian aerospace companies can do to
make the most of the changes that are coming.
The Aerospace Review, under the leadership of the Honourable David Emerson,
has been critical to guiding us through this taking stock process. Over
the course of 2012, representatives of all parts of the Canadian aerospace
industry formed working groups that discussed issues critical to the growth
and competitiveness of Canadas aerospace industry on the world stage. On
November 29, 2012, the Emerson Report was released in two volumes: Beyond
the Horizon: Canadas Interests and Future in Aerospace and Reaching Higher:
Canadas Interests and Future in Space.
The Emerson Report now forms the cornerstone of what we believe must be the
way forward for aerospace in Canada. The government indicated its agreement
when it acted on several of the most critical recommendations including support
for SADI and the creation of a technology demonstrator program by supporting
them in the 2013 Economic Action Plan. As we move forward, the AIAC and
the Canadian aerospace industry will continue to work very closely with their
AIAC 20132014 Guide to Canadas Aerospace Industry

17

partners government and others to ensure that the recommendations contained


in the Report are implemented. In Mr.Emersons words, These broad global
developments are transformative. They mean more opportunities, but also more
risks... If Canadian companies, academic and research institutions, unions, and
governments are clear-eyed and resolute in navigating these emerging conditions,
the sector can emergestronger.
We are proud of what the Canadian industry has accomplished and the leadership
it continues to demonstrate on the world stage. We agree with Mr.Emerson
that there is great opportunity awaiting us. As an industry, we are committed to
taking the steps necessary to ensure not only that Canadian aerospace companies
are competitive, but that we remain a global aerospace leader known for the
excellence of our workforce and the quality of our products and services.
As the national voice of the aerospace industry, the AIAC has ably represented
Canadian aerospace companies to governments, leaders and industry insiders
both at home and abroad for over 50 years. Through its leadership and advocacy,
it has a vital role to play in the industrys continued development. AIAC members
have the unique opportunity to directly influence the crucial policy decisions that
will influence their future and the future of the aerospace industry in Canada.
The AIAC also represents Canadas aerospace companies on the world stage.
One of the ways in which it does this is through the Guide to Canadas Aerospace
Industry. For over 25 years, this Guide has highlighted the services, innovation
and technology produced by Canadian aerospace companies from coast to coast.
The companies and services showcased here are the backbone of the industry as
it exists today, displaying its depth and national scope. They are the best Canada
has to offer, and as we take the steps to securing a stronger and better future,
these are the companies that will be leading theway.

Message from the Honourable


Christian Paradis, Minister of Industry
and Minister of State (Agriculture)
On behalf of the Government of Canada,
I would like to commend the Aerospace
Industries Association of Canada (AIAC)
for its leadership in the aerospace and
space industries. In addition, I would like to
convey my sincere appreciation to the AIAC
and its members whose time, ideas and
expertise were critical contributions to the
Review of Aerospace and Space Programs
and Policies, led by the Honourable David
Emerson.
Canadas world-class aerospace and space industries make important contributions
to our economy while supporting high-skilled jobs across the country. The
aerospace and space industries generate more than $22 billion in annual revenues,
export 80percent of their output, are among the most research-intensive industries
in Canada and are responsible for 170,000 jobs.
Although the numbers are significant, our government recognizes these industries
face challenges within a changing business environment. To be a global leader
we need to stay ahead of the curve. Innovation, ideas and ingenuity are what will
matter in tomorrows economy. Innovation is the best way for Canada to compete
with countries around the world and to create jobs here at home.
Economic Action Plan 2013 demonstrates our governments commitment to
the aerospace and space industries with stable funding of nearly $1billion over
five years to the Strategic Aerospace and Defence Initiative, the creation of an
Aerospace Technology Demonstration Program and the launch of consultations for
the creation of a National Aerospace Research and Technology Network. We will
continue to explore other ways to enhance the competitiveness of the Canadian
aerospace and space industries.

AIAC 20132014 Guide to Canadas Aerospace Industry

The C-27J: Right for the Mission


Alenia North America Canada, in partnership
with General Dynamics Canada, Provincial
Aerospace Ltd. and DRS Technologies Canada
Ltd., is bidding the C-27J aircraft for Canadas
pending Fixed-Wing Search-and-Rescue
(FWSAR) program.
The C-27J Spartan is the most capable and
uncompromising search and rescue aircraft
in its class. It is a twin-engine, turboprop,
tactical transport aircraft with state-of-the-art
technology in avionics, propulsion and
systems, resulting in high performance and
cost-savings.
Additionally, the C-27J, thanks to its speed,
can reach locations anywhere in Canada faster
than its competitors, including those in the far
North and at sea. Once at the search location,
the C-27Js speed and unrefueled range allow
SAR crews to cover the search area quickly
and stay on station for extended periods
oftime.
The C-27J can also take-off and land
quickly, virtually anywhere. It can make tight
turns, climb and descend rapidly, and was
designed for short take-off and landing (STOL)
on unprepared fields and landing strips.
With a rugged construction, highest in its
class power-to-weight ratio, and the ability to
perform tight turns, the C-27J is built for the
SAR mission.
The C-27J was developed to be
interoperable with the existing fleet of C-130s.
This includes sharing the same propulsion
system and a significant percentage of the
avionics. This commonality will reduce cost
and spare requirements, as well as the time
required to train maintenance personnel,
making the C-27J a cost-effective and
low-risksolution.

With Alenia Aermacchis C-27J platform,


GD Canadas system integration expertise,
Provincial Aerospaces search and rescue
experience and international reputation
as an MRO organization, and DRS TCLs
capabilities in training, this team offers
Canada the very best aircraft for FWSAR with
a strong Canadian presence. The long-term
engineering and maintenance support of
the fleet and the resulting long-term, wellpaying jobs across the country will make this
partnership an outstanding economic stimulus
for Canadas aerospace sector.
Right for the mission. Ready for Canada.

Consortium for Research and Innovation in


Aerospace in Quebec (CRIAQ) is a non-profit
organization established in 2002 with the
financial support of the Quebec government.
Its mission is to increase the competitiveness
of the aerospace industry and enhance the
collective knowledge base in aerospace
through improved education and training
ofstudents.
CRIAQ is a unique model of collaborative
industry-led research involving universities
and research centres. The consortium
promotes collaboration between specialists
from industry and researchers to identify and
implement precompetitive projects that meet
industry requirements. Projects, which last
on average three years, involve at least two
industries and two research units and are
mostly initiated during the research forum.
Through CRIAQ, businesses have access
to the expertise of renowned researchers and
to increased financial resources that greatly
enhance their initial R&D budget. For a small
business, this can represent up to 30times its
contribution to a project.
Researchers thus benefit from financial
support provided by a range of sources,
and contribute to technological advances
in the industry. A tremendous incubator of
young talents, CRIAQ comprises more than
600 researchers and specialists from the
industry, universities and research centres,
as well as some 550 university-based
studentresearchers.

The year 2012 marked CRIAQs


10thAnniversary and the launch of its
newstrategic plan. Under the theme
Destination 2022, the major strategic
orientations are to:
D
 evelop performance indicators
and analyze the concrete impacts of
CRIAQprojects;
Launch the CRIAQ Community platform
to develop efficient cooperation amongst
members and the expanded community;
Create CRIAQ TRL4+ and an expanded
CRIAQ to develop cooperative projects
pertaining to products and systems and
broaden the model to the rest of Canada;
Launch the CRIAQ Academy to improve
training and structure integration with
welladapted innovative methods;
Institute CRIAQs open Out of the Box
process.

REDUCING RISK IN COMPOSITES


PROCESSING
When done right, composites manufacturing
brings great reward in both cost and efficiency
of structure. However, there is significant
risk in getting the process right. Process
simulation allows you to efficiently study
the effect of process parameters such as
cure cycle, tool design and oven/autoclave
performance on the outcome of the process.
A quantitative understanding of these
relationships will reduce risk in process
development, guide you towards robust and
efficient processes, and reduce the amount of
testing required.
Convergent has experience supporting
major new airplane programs as well as
research and development programs. We are
comfortable working with organizations of
all sizes, from large to small. Our pragmatic
and cost-effective approach to process design
provides significant returns to our customers.
With our process design support tools, you
can reduce risk and uncertainty at every step:
from initial trade studies to detail design
andproduction.
Products
Convergent provides a full suite of analysis
tools and software. Simple graphical process
maps and easy-to-use, free-standing process
analysis software can be used for fast
preliminary analysis and understanding.
Three-dimensional finite element analysis
packages can be used for detailed simulation
of large complex geometries. The simple
tools only require a few minutes to generate
useful results, whereas the complex tools
require more time but provide large amounts
of detailed information. The tools complement
and are consistent with each other.

Services
Convergent provides a complete range of
engineering services from full program
support to technical consulting. We work
closely with our customers to establish
a support level that fits their technical
environment and maximizes the return on
their investment. We also perform materials
and facilities characterization for process
simulation and provide training and short
courses in process analysis.

Company Background
MSR was founded in 1979 as a supplier
of manufacturing engineering services to
McDonnell-Douglas during the conversion of the
Malton, Ontario, plant to wing manufacturing.
Our focus was on tool design, CNC
programming, process planning and
cost estimating. We continued to provide
services to companies such as Rolls-Royce,
Pratt & Whitney, Canadian Marconi, UDT,
Cooper Energy Systems, Bristol Aerospace,
General Dynamics and other aerospace and
defencecompanies.
In 2008 we began providing Should Cost
Estimating Services to Pratt & Whitney Canada
Corp. We competed against several companies
in the categories of quality, timeliness of
delivery, cost and relationship, and we are
the only supplier of this group continuing to
provide these services. On a recent report,
we were ranked 9 to 10 out of 10 in all these
categories. We have provided Should Cost
Estimating Services to PWC continuously since
the initial agreement in 2008.
MSR Inc. is registered with the Controlled
Goods Directorate in Canada.
What We Do
At MSR, we are 100% focused on detailed,
activity-based, Should Cost Estimates of
customers components and assemblies.
Prior to a supply chain negotiation or an
engineering design review, the customers
designated representative supplies MSR
with the data required to manufacture
the component or assembly. This usually
includes 2D drawings, supplementary product
information documents, 3D models, AMS
or AS specifications and any other pertinent
information.
We analyze material cost and usage and we
calculate labor time and cost, all based on the
manufacturing data provided and the activities
required to produce the item. We submit a
report to the customer in a universally readable
and interactive spreadsheet format. The
resulting Should Cost Estimates are fact-based,
accurate and dependable.
Customers use these reports for design
engineering cost impact analysis, supply chain
cost reduction and negotiating, and product
information management input with reliable
and dependable data.

Services Supplied by MSR Inc.


MSR is 100% focused on manufacturing
Should Cost Estimating Services for aerospace
OEMs. We have developed internal processes
and systems that give us a unique and valuable
capability.
Our focus on aerospace OEM customers
provides us with an insight into components
and assemblies with the characteristics of
low order quantity, high product mix, exotic
materials, special processes, special inspection
requirements, and high investment in supplier
development.
Our reporting format is unique because
anyone receiving our reports only needs basic
office software. We can customize the reports
to customer needs.
How MSRs Services Could Fit Your
Companys Needs
Your company could benefit from MSRs
Should Cost Estimates by reducing costs
of components and assemblies. Such cost
reductions will go straight to the bottom line.
When buyers are in supplier negotiations
and have a fact-based and dependable
Should Cost Estimate, the buyer and not the
supplier has control of the pricing.
When engineering designers have
knowledge of the cost impact of their designs,
they can design more cost effective products.
Dependable product cost information can be
stored in the companys Product Information
Management system ready for retrieval
whenneeded.

The Northern Centre for Advanced Technology


Inc. (NORCAT) is a not-for-profit, non-share
private corporation based in Sudbury, Ontario.
Its building houses NORCATs head office and
the various centres of expertise, including
the Ontario Centre for Ground Control, the
Northeastern Ontario Occupational Health and
Safety and Environmental Resource Centre,
the Innovation and Development Centre,
the Multimedia Production Centre and the
Computer-Aided Technology Centre as well as
training facilities for WHMIS and contractor
safety orientation.
Dale Boucher is Senior Director at NORCAT
in charge of the Innovation and Development
department, which has been developing
space mining equipment since 1999, with the
primary focus on drilling units for subsurface
exploration including space.
DRILLING TECHNOLOGY
NORCAT has developed a large number of
space mining tools, including a mini corer,
sample encapsulation system, a deep drill,
a landing pad excavator, and a load haul
dumpexcavator.
A specially modified cryogenic cooler has
allowed NORCAT to perform some unique
testing of down the hole drilling equipment
atlunar and Mars-like temperatures.

for NASAs RESOLVE project. The system


is designed tointegrate with the NASA
built analysis suite ofRESOLVE on a CSA
providedrover.
MINING EXCAVATION
In addition to drills, NORCAT/EVC has
developed excavation equipment such as
a Bucket Wheel Excavator, a multi-agent
teaming landing pad excavator, an oxygen
plant feed stock excavator, and helped
developed an ISRU specific mobility chassis
(Neptec/ODG).
ANALOGUE DEPLOYMENT MANAGEMENT
NORCAT successfully managed the threeweek 2010 deployment on the slopes of
Mauna Kea involving over 100 personnel
from six NASA centres, the CSA, Natural
Resources Canada, DLR, universities from
the U.S., Canada and Germany, and at least
11 private companies from the U.S., Canada
and Germany. Several previous deployments,
involving NORCAT developed hardware,
facilitated the development of this expertise.

AUTONOMOUS DRILLING
Autonomy is a critical element for planetary
exploration equipment. Machinery must be
able to function with little or no operator
interference in many situations, particularly
on unmanned missions. NORCAT has been
working closely with Xiphos in development
of their Q-cards, small controllers that have
many applications and are of interest to
NORCAT for use in exploration equipment.
RESOLVE PROJECT
NORCAT/EVC have been working with
NASAand CSA on the RESOLVE prospecting
mission project since 2004. The RESOLVE
project (Regolith and Environment Science
and Oxygen and Lunar Volatile Extraction) is

Partner Profiles

The Canadian Council for Aviation & Aerospace


(CCAA) is a not-for-profit, national partnership
organization that brings together business,
labour, educators, industry associations and
government in a strategic alliance that is
focused on implementing solutions to the
specific skills and demographic needs of the
industry. CCAA works with all segments of
the sector, including aircraft maintenance,
aerospace manufacturing, fixed-wing and
helicopter companies, airlines, airports and
professional pilots.
CCAA has two main areas of focus: skills
development and industry demographics
(supply and demand for particular skills).
Skills development
CCAA devotes considerable resources to
skills development, working very closely with
industry experts to produce useful tools.
One such tool is the Occupational
Standard. The first step in the development
of an Occupational Standard is identifying
occupations for which industry needs
standards. CCAA then works with industry to
document the knowledge and skills required
for that occupation. To date, CCAA has
developed 30 occupational standards for both
licensed and unlicensed trades, including
occupations in maintenance, manufacturing,
quality assurance and management. Among
other things, Occupational Standards provide a
checklist, for both industry and the individual,
of the knowledge and skills required for a
particular occupation.
Once an Occupational Standard has been
produced, individuals can choose to become
certified in that occupation. The Certification
process may include a combination of training
at an accredited college, completion of a
CCAA logbook, on-the-job experience, and/
or a challenge exam. Certification attests
that an individual possesses the skills and
competencies identified in the Occupational
Standard. Certification is a portable credential
valuable to both the individual and the
hiring corporations. Among other things,
Certification has been proven to reduce
incidents and accidents, resulting in cost
savings to corporations and lower injury
rates. In addition, it allows corporations to
demonstrate very quickly and efficiently to
third parties that it has competent staff.

Another CCAA tool is Curricula for training


organizations. Curricula are based on, and
align with, Occupational Standards. This
ensures that the training organizations are
teaching what industry says it needs (i.e. the
skills and competencies industry has identified
as being necessary for the occupation).
Accreditation is a process by which CCAA
works with a training organization to
ensure that it meets national standards for
the delivery of its aviation or aerospace
courses. Currently CCAA has 46 programs
in 23 institutions across Canada. The CCAA
Accreditation Board provides valuable
assistance and guidance with respect to the
Accreditation program.
In the interest of maintaining and
upgrading the skills of industry personnel,
CCAA also offers training courses and
workshops. Perhaps the most well-known are
the Human Factors training, and the Quality
Systems workshops series.

WHO WE ARE
Export Development Canada is Canadas
export credit agency. EDC offers innovative
commercial solutions to help Canadian
exporters and investors expand their
international business. EDCs knowledge
and partnerships are used by more than
8,300 Canadian companies and their global
customers in up to 200 markets worldwide
each year.
Our support to the sector has continued to
grow over the past 20 years. In 2012, EDCs
support to the Canadian aerospace sector was
approximately $5 billion. At the end of 2012,
aerospace loan assets in EDCs loan portfolio
exceeded $9 billion.
EDC SUPPORT FOR THE AEROSPACESECTOR
The support that EDC provides to the sector
includes the following:
Financing:
On average, EDC facilitates between $2.5and
$3.5 billion in aerospace financing on a yearly
basis. The main use of EDC financing is to
foreign purchasers to support export sales of
aircraft, engines, simulators andparts.
Alternative Financing Solutions:
In addition to direct financing, EDC also
provides a number of alternative financing
solutions to help Canadas aerospace
exporters compete internationally, including
guarantees, lines of credit, equipment
financing and note purchase facilities.
Accounts Receivables Insurance:
EDC also provides a significant amount of
support to the aerospace sector through
its Accounts Receivables Insurance
(ARI) program. ARI insures a companys
receivables, providing certainty that the
money owed to them by their customers
will be converted into cash by their due
date. Given that receivables are often a
considerable asset on a companys balance
sheet, EDCs ARI makes it easier for a financial
institution to lend against thatasset.
Bonding:
More and more buyers are asking for bonds
to ensure suppliers can meet their obligations.
EDC offers a suite of products that can work

Provincial Member Profiles

The Government of Saskatchewan, through the


Ministry of the Economy, assists Saskatchewan
companies in becoming more actively involved
in aerospace activities in Canada and abroad.
In order to capture Industrial and Regional
Benefit (IRB) opportunities, the ministry works
to promote Saskatchewan manufacturers,
research institutions and technical institutes to
the aerospace and defence sector. This is done
through introducing Saskatchewan companies
to the prime contractors, arranging visits by
contractors to Saskatchewan and by acting
as a liaison between industry in the province
and international companies seeking business
opportunities.
Saskatchewan is home to military and
commercial pilot training; research and
development facilities in our two universities;
the Canadian Light Source Synchrotron;
the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute
(PAMI); trades training through Saskatchewan
Institute of Applied Science and Technology
(SIAST) and Saskatchewan Indian Institute of
Technologies (SIIT); manufacturing expertise;
and First Nations opportunities.
As Saskatchewan continues to lead the
country in economic growth, the manufacturing sector is recognized as a key contributor.
In 2012, the value of manufacturing shipments
in Saskatchewan totalled $14billion, which
represents an increase of 10.9% from 2011.
Manufacturing in Saskatchewan benefits from
having three consortiums of manufacturers
committed to implementing principles of lean
enterprise and improving their productivity and
competitiveness. Saskatchewan manufacturers
working with cutting-edge technology and the
time made available to industry at Canadas
only synchrotron the Canadian Light Source
results in the development of new manufacturing technologies and equipment. Innovative
manufacturers with capabilities in aerospace
and defence include SED Systems, Dumur
Industries, Scientific Instrumentation Limited,
Vecima Networks, Draganfly Innovations,
Siemens Laserworks, DynaIndustrial, Evraz
andSBC Case.
The Saskatchewan Aviation Learning
Centre located in Saskatoon opened in
October 2010 and houses the Commercial
Pilot and Aircraft Maintenance Engineer
programs. The Aircraft Maintenance Engineer

program developed by SIIT and funded by


Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Rockwell Collins,
and key investments from the federal and
provincial governments is building the
foundation for a growing aerospace industry
in Saskatchewan. The school g
raduated its
first class in the spring of 2012.
Saskatchewans Commercial Pilot program
represents a provincial, college-level training
program in partnership between SIAST and
the Saskatchewan Aviation Council. Funding
from Western Economic Diversification Canada
enabled the purchase and installation of a King
Air turbo prop simulator to provide valuable
state-of-the-art training for commercial pilots in
Western Canada.
Saskatchewan is also home to military pilot
training. 15 Wing Moose Jaw is the home of
the NATO Flying Training in Canada (NFTC)
program, which is a strategic alliance between
Canadas Department of National Defence and
Bombardier to provide military pilot training
to Canadian Forces and participating member
countries. The bases clear prairie skies and
proximity to the Rocky Mountains make it
an ideal training ground for Canadian Forces
and foreign pilots. Moose Jaw is also home
to the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, Canadas
celebrated air demonstration team. NFTC is
supported by major aerospace companies
suchas Bombardier, CAE, BAE Systems,
Hawker-Beechcraft, Serco Aviation Services
and ATCO Frontec.
Investment in R&D infrastructure and
manufacturing capabilities make the
province an attractive location for research,
development, manufacturing and testing of
high-technology, high-quality aerospace and
defence products and systems.
