NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to Interoperability Platform ANNEX 2 NIAG-N(2024)0007 NATO UNCLASSIFIED 2-1 NIAG STUDY DESCRIPTION 1. Title of the Proposed Study: NATO Medium and Large Calibre Direct Fire Munition Interoperability 2. Brief Description of Proposed Study: Assess, characterize, and differentiate the interoperability of the current and future NATO medium and large calibre direct fire munitions (≥20mm, non-artillery/non-indirect fire), their production sources and their respective compatibility with the various medium and large calibre guns/cannons mounted on the entire fleet of NATO land tracked and wheeled platforms. This study will serve as a tool for Allied Commanders to have confidence in the use of ally-sourced ammunition in their medium and large calibre weapons systems and serve as a tool for allied munition producers to understand what they must modify in their munitions to maximize compatibility and interoperability across the NATO Alliance. 3. Background: The Russian War of Aggression in Ukraine presented and unprecedented opportunity for the NATO Alliance to demonstrates its relevance and necessity in the collective defence of Europe. NATO has risen to that challenge and delivered unwavering materiel support to Ukraine in terms or weapons systems, ammunition, and technical support. In providing this unprecedented support, munition interoperability and compatibility has emerged as a concern that needs attention. NATO as an alliance has introduced new, diverse, and higher performing weapon systems across its land vehicle fleet. While this diverse collection of weapons systems has created unrivalled performance and capability, it has also created new challenges in understanding which weapon systems are compatible with which ammunitions systems. This challenge became evident when weapon systems and munitions were provided to Ukraine with uncertain confidence that the munitions provided from one Allied nation were compatible with a weapons system from another Allied nation. This study aims to bring renewed confidence in the compatibility and interoperability of NATO munitions and provide a list of opportunities where interoperability and compatibility can be enhanced. 4. Objectives of the Study: a) What is the Objective of the study in terms of what is to be carried out, why and with what purpose? Identify all medium and large calibre munition (M&LC) sources for the NATO alliance; assess and characterize the interoperability and compatibility factors of the M&LC munitions produced by those sources; and differentiate what M&LC weapon systems throughout the Alliance are compatible with those M&LC munitions to build confidence in allied M&LC munition interoperability and identify opportunities to enhance M&LC munition interoperability. b) What is/are the operational scenarios to be considered? NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to Interoperability Platform ANNEX 2 NIAG-N(2024)0007 NATO UNCLASSIFIED 2-2 NATO Commanders in each of the 31 member nations are presented with mixed M&LC munition lots from each of the 31-member nation munition sources. How can the NATO Commander have confidence a provided munition from an ally will safely and effectively function in their respective medium and large calibre weapons systems? c) What is the scope of the study to be, as appropriate? Assess, characterize, and differentiate each NATO M&LC Weapon System’s compatibility and interoperability with each NATO M&LC munition source and type. M&LC Munitions include but are not limited to the following: 20 x 102mm -HEI, AP, TP, TP-T 20 x 110mm - HEI, TP, TP-T, HEIT-SD 20 x 128mm - HEI, TP, TP-T, HEIT-D 25 x 137mm - TP-T, APFSDS-T, HEI-T 30 x 113mm - TP, TP-T, API, HEI-SD 30 x 173mm - APFSDS-T, TP-T 35 x 228mm - TP-T, HEI, HEI-T 40 x 53mm - HE, TP, TP-T, HE-T 40mm - HEI, HE-T, AP, TP-T 57mm - HE, TP-T 76mm - Naval: HE, TP, HE-PD 90mm - HE-T, HEAT, HESH 100mm - HEAT, APDS; Naval: HE, TP 105mm - Tank: HE, HEAT, HEP, HESH, APFSDS 120mm - Tank: HE, HEAT, APFSDS 125mm - Tank: HE, HEAT, APFSDS, Practice 127mm - Naval: HE, TP, Full Charge, Reduced 130mm - HE-FRAG d) What is the study to address – specific issues, technologies, documentation, potential follow-on demonstrations or testing, etc.? The study should address all critical munition-weapon system interoperability and compatibility factors including but not limited to weapon system and munition component dimension and tolerances (overall length, diameter, etc.) headspace, timing, charge pressure, and other factors. Follow-on studies could take this analysis to the next level in understanding the performance of the different M&LC munitions in the various M&LC weapons systems in terms of range, accuracy, reliability, and other factors of interest. e) What is the required output of the study that is what information and recommendations is the study to deliver in the final report? NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to Interoperability Platform ANNEX 2 NIAG-N(2024)0007 NATO UNCLASSIFIED 2-3 At minimum, the report should provide a compatibility and interoperability matrix of NATO M&LC Weapons Systems vs. NATO M&LC Munitions. The matrix at minimum should show the specific M&LC munition’s source nation, manufacturer, and type, and whether it can be safely and effectively fired in a respective and corresponding weapon system. The report should also identify what factors or concerns prevent a munition from being safely and effectively fired in a corresponding NATO ML&C weapon system. 5.

The theme of the evening will be the role of helicopters in guarding coastal sovereignty, with a focus on shipborne maritime operations and challenges.   Please joint in person our speaker Mark McKeeman Director of Transport Canada’s Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems Project, GDMS-C Tim Garriock and Jeremy Graaskamp to learn the tactic behind MHP deployment. Please register to assist the event Thursday April 11 at our EDGE Room in Ottawa. https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/the-role-of-helicopters-in-guarding-coastal-sovereignty-tickets-868565210927   Since 2018, Transport Canada has been testing the use of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) mapping cameras and AI in the detection of North Atlantic Right Whales (NARW) in the Gulf of St Lawrence. The presentation explores the development of RPAS based detection technologies in support of NARW management measures.   In 2015, the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) took delivery of the first of 28 Sikorsky CH-148 Cyclones, which is widely regarded as one of the most advanced maritime helicopters flying in the world today. The CH-148 is a military fly-by-wire version of the Sikorsky S-92A commercial helicopter.   Tim Garriok will present us the challenges of operating a military helicopter at sea, in austere sea state conditions, from a pilots’ perspective. The sea state environment and the difficulties encountered when planning those types of flight operations and missions will be described in detail. Mr. Garriok will explain the purpose of deploying military helicopters with the right mission sets.   Then, in order to support efficiently and safely the flight crew throughout military helicopter maritime missions and operations, Jeremy Graaskamp will present us the engineering challenges to integrate the right set of technologies onboard.   A light meal and drinks will be offered during the event. Doors will open at 17:30, with presentations beginning at 18:30. Visitors will need to register with General Dynamics security so please allow time to check in.

    Updated Canadian Defence Policy Released

    ​Hi all,    This morning the Government of Canada released an update to Canada's defence policy entitled “Our North, Strong and Free: A Renewed Vision for Canada’s Defence.” At the top level, it commits to investing $8.1 billion over the next five years, and earmarks $73 billion over the next 20 years with the aim of bringing Canada’s defence spending-to-GDP ratio to 1.76% by 2029-30 and achieving NATO’s target of 20% for major equipment expenditures as a proportion of defence funding though no date is specified. More details on the financial profile will be released in the upcoming federal budget on April 16.  DPU Webinar: Join us on Wednesday, April 10, at 1:00pm EDT, when CADSI and CGAI will provide initial reactions to the DPU. Register here: defenceandsecurity.ca/events/details&e=617 Read CADSI’s response to the Defence Policy Update Key Messages This defence policy update is encouraging because funding is attached that we hope can be counted on. With $8.1B tied to the first five years, and many elements still under consideration, much of the investment plan will be left to future governments to implement.  The Policy acknowledges that a Canadian Domestic Industrial Base (DIB) is integral to Canadian national security and the effectiveness of the CAF and that the DIB must be strengthened for resiliency, capacity and key capabilities.  What the government’s commitment to a new relationship with Canada’s defence industry means: Collaborating on both current requirements and road-mapping the future – not just more of the same types of engagements that currently exist. Mirroring the approach of our allies, who unabashedly preference their domestic firms when it makes sense to do so, which can greatly speed up the acquisition process. If the technology, service, or equipment is Canadian-made, and it’s something that meets the CAF’s needs, we buy it.  The solution to procurement reform cannot only be increased reliance on foreign-made military equipment and services. NATO’s targets – and its Defence Production Action Plan – are based on the idea that each member nation is responsible for building and sustaining a defence industrial base that can contribute to greater allied capacity and deterrence.  Canadian industry is committed to working with the government to implement this plan – as it does not include details of how the elements in DPU will be implemented.  Other Highlights:  It is encouraging that $8.1B is tied to the first five years of the DPU as companies are counting on that. Much of the funding committed is in outer years. The plan includes exploring options for several new and expanding capabilities. These include submarines, ground-based air defence, long-range air- and sea-launched missiles, surveillance and strike drones and counter-drone capabilities, modernized artillery capabilities, upgrading or replacing the tank fleet, and also exploring the establishment of a light armoured vehicle production program.      The government plans to establish a Canadian Armed Forces Cyber Command and, with the Communications Security Establishment, create a joint Canadian cyber operations capability.  There is no mention of Canada’s recent decision to seek membership in AUKUS Pillar 2.  Canada will join the NATO Innovation Fund, which will allow for a new venture capital source for Canadian firms.  While acknowledging that “defence procurement takes too long in Canada and needs to be faster and more effective,” the policy does not propose specific procurement reforms. Instead, it points to the PSPC-led Procurement Reform Initiative as a process by which this may be achieved.  The policy mentions pursuing “newly forming defence trade arrangements among trusted partners” and “increased use of government-to-government arrangements where it makes sense to develop strategic partnerships.” How this can be done in a way that also builds Canada’s DIB is not detailed.  Resources (Plain links):  Policy update: canada.ca/en/department-national-defence/corporate/reports-publications/north-strong-free-2024.html  Backgrounder: canada.ca/en/department-national-defence/news/2024/04/our-north-strong-and-free-a-renewed-vision-for-canadas-defence.html  Strong, Secure, Engaged (SSE): canada.ca/en/department-national-defence/corporate/policies-standards/canada-defence-policy.html  CADSI Response: defenceandsecurity.ca/media/article&id=421&t=c  Questions?
