Event description

Description

The Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) will conduct an Experimental Ship (X-Ship) Industry Day on 21-22 June 2017 at HMCS CARLETON in Ottawa, ON. As announced, a dedicated RCN ship will be available for the next 4-5 years for testing of innovative technologies and concepts during the 2017-2021 time period. The Experimental Ship initiative will collect data points for future force development and ship builds.

The objective of the two-part day is to actively engage and review with industry where the RCN has forecasted future problem areas, which new emerging technologies might address. This industry day will also describe the process to determine the eligibility and selection of new technologies for at-sea trials. These sea-trials will collect data points for future force development and ship builds and provide the RCN with a first-hand view of their various benefits and merits.

Morning briefings during the X-Ship Industry Day will include key information areas of interest to industry including:

1. An overview of the evolution of the X-Ship concept;

2. Definition of innovation areas of interest;

3. Overview of processes for selection;

4. What industry can expect from the RCN;

5. How industry once selected will be engaged; and,

6. Outcomes of at-sea trials for selected technologies.

The afternoon one-on-one sessions are intended to clarify innovation areas and to provide additional information to industry in response to questions that the RCN presents during the Industry Engagement Day.
