This historical view of the industry would be incomplete without reference to the development of Canadian Aircraft Electronics. CAE has grown from a fledgling company in Montreal in 1945 to a corporation with subsidiary aerospace companies across Canada engaged in the design and manufacture of aircraft simulators, avionics (aviation electronic equipment), and aircraft components and subsystems. In space-related activities, Canada's industry is modest by comparison with the US, Russian and European industries, but it is first-rate in special fields. The industry originated in the 1920s with ground-based research projects for the study of the Earth's upper atmosphere conducted by scientists from U of Saskatchewan. An extension of these researches using high-altitude balloons was initiated in the 1950s by DRB, and led to work with sounding rockets, developed by Bristol Aerospace, Winnipeg, using the Black Brant rocket. In 1954 the army conducted the first series of rocket firings at Fort Churchill, Man. At the end of 1958, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) accepted a DRB proposal to create jointly a sounding satellite, the Alouette I, which was supported by a network of Canadian ground stations at Ottawa, Prince Albert and Resolute Bay and 10 other stations around the world. The satellite was launched in 1962 and was a significant technological success. This entry into the field of space technology aroused considerable interest in using the technology for communications satellites. In Sept 1969 Telesat Canada was formed to provide domestic communications services by satellite throughout the country. Hughes Aircraft Corp (US), with Northern Electric and Spar Aerospace, designed and developed the Anik I, II and III satellites, launched in Nov 1972, April 1973 and May 1975 respectively. Canada became the first country in the world to own and operate a domestic SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS system. More another time ..... -=o0o=- .
