Description of Figure 1

On the left side of the diagram are the six levels. From the top and going down, the seven levels are SADI objectives, activities, outputs, immediate outcomes (0-5 years), intermediate outcomes (greater than five years), and ultimate outcomes.

There are three boxes that outline each of the SADI objectives. The top box is "1. Encourage strategic R&D that will result in innovation and excellence in new products and services". The next box is "2. Enhance the competitiveness of Canadian aerospace, defence, space and security (A&D) companies". The last box is "3. Foster collaboration between research institutes, universities and colleges, non-profit organizations and the private sector".

The next level below SADI objectives is activities. There are seven boxes for activities. The boxes go from left to right. The first four boxes have an arrow that leads to the next box on its right. From the left, the first box is "Perform eligibility & assessment screening of Proponents and their R&D projects". Next is a box with "Conduct due diligence on the company and its project". Next is a box with "Formulate decision documents and seek appropriate approval". Next is a box with "Preparation of Contribution Agreements". This box leads to the fifth box on the row with "Monitoring of Agreements, R&D activities, repayments and program outcomes" and a box below it, which is called "Execution of Contribution Agreements". The box with "Monitoring of Agreements, R&D activities, repayments and program outcomes" has a box below it with "Amendments (if warranted) of Contribution Agreements. The two boxes that are below the five boxes on the row have arrows that lead to all of the immediate outcomes.

There are three boxes that outline the immediate outcomes. Going from left to right, they are "Increased strategic R&D of recipients", "Leveraging of private sector investments in R&D" and "Increased collaboration between research institutes, universities, colleges, and the private sector". All three immediate outcomes have a arrow that goes down to the immediate outcome level showing that they contribute to "Increased development of innovative products, processes and services".

There are two boxes that represent the intermediate outcomes. On the left, "Increased development of innovative products, processes and services" contributes to "Increased commercialization of innovative products, processes and services". This contributes to an ultimate outcome "Increased competitiveness of Canadian A&D firms".

There are two boxes that represent ultimate outcomes. A box with "Increased competitiveness of Canadian A&D firms" has an arrow going down to another box called "Contribute to the achievement of broader technological, economic, environmental and social benefits for Canadians".
