The Canadian Space Agency today released information about two publications that are sure to interest CASI members and friends.

The 2016 edition of the State of the Canadian Space Sector report, now in its 20th edition, is the primary reference on the Canadian space sector. It contributes to our understanding of the sector by providing policy-makers, stakeholders and all interested Canadians with reliable and authoritative data. The CSA web site also houses past editions of the report. Here is the link to access the report: http://www.asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/publications/state.asp

In addition, in commemoration of the 49th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s landing on the moon, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO), in partnership with the CSA has published a report entitled, Patents in Space: Highlighting Innovation in the Canadian Space Sector.
