  • Thanks, Mike. What I would like to do it to give a quick explanation of technology roadmapping, describe our experiences at Industry Canada with Technology Roadmaps, provide an introduction to the Soldier Systems Technology Roadmap, and the governance structure, particularly the Steering Committee and the Technical Sub-Committees.
  • Industry Canada is involved with Technology Roadmaps on a sectoral or sub-sectoral basis. The theory behind technology roadmapping is to determine where you are at the moment; then what the market demands will be in 5-10 years. The gap between where you are now and where you need to be to meet future market demands is what a Technology Roadmap is all about. The Roadmaps are developed through a series of face to face workshops- the first is a visioning exercises; then products or services; then technologies; then knitting them together.
  • Top pick a few examples to highlight: The Aerospace Collaborative R&D Office at the National Research Council was established to facilitate the implementation of the Aerospace Roadmap by the Aerospace Industries Association. An Electronic Commerce/Electronic Data Interchange (EC/EDI) project was begun in the Aerospace manufacturing sector. The Aerospace Environmental TRM was one of the successful candidates for the first Business Led Networks of Centres of Excellence 4 year, $11million for technology development; the Lean Logistics TRM identified skills as a key issue, and a Sector Council was established by HRSDC to determine future skills requirement; and the Marine and Ocean Technologies TRM (DM Committee)
  • Executive Steering Committee (ESC) 10 industry and 10 government, 2 support and 1 facilitator co-chairs from industry and government to provide direction and general guidance for the development of the TRM forum for exchange of views Industry positions on the ESC filled by industry co-chairs of the Technical Sub-Committees
  • Definition phase (2008-2009) Governance Collaboration tool development Development phase (2009-2010) Workshops Validating the vision Finding/validating gaps and niches Establishing the links between technology and capability needs/timings Recommendations for future R&D projects addressing gaps/needs Implementation phase (2010-2018) Annual Soldier Systems Workshop Continued dialogue with Collaboration tools Sponsored/Unsolicited focused R&D projects Revision of roadmap plan to adapt to change of vision or external drivers as needed

  • Soldier Systems TRM Rationale and Governance By Geoff Nimmo, Manager TRM Secretariat Industry Canada 21-23 September, 2009 Vancouver, B.C. Soldier Systems Technology Roadmap Power/Energy/Sustainability Workshop
  • What is Technology Roadmapping?
    • Collaborative, industry-led strategic planning process for developing innovative products and processes to meet future market demands
    • Features face-to-face workshops
    • Key issue- what technologies can create the needed products and services to meet identified future market demands
    How do we get there? Where do we want to go? Where are we now ?
  • Canadian Roadmapping Experiences
    • Initiated in 1995
    • 33 completed to date
    • 4 currently under development
    • Based on a network of partnerships
      • Over 1000 industrial partners (e.g. Ballard Power Systems; Dupont Canada; Wal-Mart; Hydro-Québec; IBM, and many SMEs)
      • Over 150 non-industry partners (Universities, Research Institutes, Associations)

  • Soldier Systems TRM Project
    • Partnership of federal departments (IC, DND and DRDC), industry and academia working to develop a Roadmap with the objectives of:
      • Supporting the Soldier Modernization Effort
      • Providing DND insights into obtainable technologies/maturity levels
      • Proving industry with opportunity to understand DND needs/demonstrate abilities
    • Exciting as a first step in a significantly different way of working with industry
  • DND/Army (client) Full-scale Soldier Systems TRM effort needed to support CF EMP & get industry engagement Other Departments (NRC, DFAIT, PWGSC) Specific interests & capabilities DRDC Subject matter experts Technology watch Focused R&D Technology transition Industry Technologies, Products and Services for domestic requirements & global market access Industry Canada Roadmapping expertise Industrial base reinforcement through innovation Industry interface Trusted partner Academia Emerging technologies research International Partners Soldier Systems TRM Key Stakeholders Facilitator supporting workshops reports
