SADI provides contributions to companies of all sizes
Of the 25 SADI projects, small companies with less than 100 employees accounted for 12 projects and 5% of the authorized assistance; medium sized companies with 100–500 employees accounted for 7 projects and 12% of the authorized assistance; and large companies with more than 500 employees accounted for 6 projects and 83% of the authorized assistance.
SADI supports the aerospace, space, defence, and security sectors
Of the 25 SADI projects, 10 projects supported the aerospace sector accounting for 84% of the authorized assistance; 12 projects supported the defence sector accounting for 14% of the authorized assistance; 2 projects supported the space sector accounting for 2% of the authorized assistance; and 1 project supported the security sector accounting for less than 1% of the authorized assistance.
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.
