SADI supports Canada's international objectives

Of the 25 SADI projects, three were developing new technologies for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) and three were developing technologies for the government of the Unites States under the Defence Development Partnership Sharing Agreement (DDSA). This is a testament to the strength of Canadian companies in their respective niches.

  • The three JSF projects account for 12% of SADI's portfolio and 7% of authorized assistance.
  • The three DDSA projects account for 12% of SADI's portfolio and 0.2% of authorized assistance.
