AbstractFor much of its 100-year history the Canadian Navy has been a partner of the National Research Council in naval technology development. The relationship began in 1933 and progressed to the point where, in 1940, NRC became the official scientific establishment of the Navy, responsible for all research development and scientific liaison. During the post-war period, NRC collaborated with the new Naval Research Establishment on the development of new naval technologies, including HMCS Bras D’or and the Variable Depth Sonar towbody, a technology still in use today. NRC contributed its expertise to all new vessel classes throughout the latter half of the 20th century. With the new millennium it has collaborated on projects as diverse as roll damping for the Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels, to better fuel efficiency for the Canadian Patrol Frigates. Those contributions have resulted in very practical benefits to naval operations, including improved safety and lower operational costs.
