Office of Naval Research, Embassies of Canada and the United Kingdom mark the 75th Anniversary of the Tizard Mission
Since 1940, multinational technical cooperation has been key component of military innovation between Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. This link has meant more than sharing cutting edge hardware, such as nuclear propulsion, building fundamental trust between the governments and service members of these nations. The roots of this long connection go back to the British Scientific and Technical Mission of the autumn of 1940, often named for its leader and chief scientist, Sir Henry Tizard. To mark the anniversary of this event, on 17 November 2015 senior sponsors from the three countries, as well as research managers and illustrious scholars, met at the Embassy of Canada to explain the Tizard Mission’s actions, and outline the lifetime of benefits gained from the technical exchanges it spawned. At the meeting’s conclusion, representatives of the three countries research establishments reaffirmed this commitment, signing a promise to continue it in the future.

Because you have established a reputation as a leader who encourages bringing new ideas forward and acts on them, she wants you to know about a proposal she has to change the way the crew manages training which she thinks could save time and make the training easier for watchstanders to attend in person...
