In summary, the CANEUS conference was a great success. Not
only did we achieve the stated primary objectives, but we
went significantly beyond them by creating a unified MNT-for-
Aerospace community across the USA, Canada, Europe and
Asia. For its part, Canada can be proud of bringing together a
truly historic gathering of technical experts and decision
makers from across the various participating countries. It is
recommended that the following future actions be taken by
governmental policy makers from the participating CANEUS
Recommended future policy actions:
Set up inter-governmental agreements that will serve
as the basis for future collaborations and ensure the free flow of Aerospace
MNT between participating countries.
Identify the areas of complementary, core expertise
within each nation, which can be seamlessly integrated into the technology
pipeline for Aerospace MNT.
Develop both a ground-based and space-based MNT reliability
testing protocol that will benefit from the Space technology pipeline.
Implement low cost, rapid launch space testing opportunities
that can advance Space MNT development far more rapidly than is currently
the case. In this way, there is a dual benefit of realizing the Return-on-Investment
(ROI) quicker as well as building in reliability and robustness
into Space MNT at a relatively early stage of development.
