Technical and advisory services

Our technical services help small and large enterprises overcome workforce constraints and limited resources, accelerating design cycles and helping to identify product performance limits. We have experienced professionals on site to help our clients solve immediate technical problems associated with the transfer, adoption and diffusion of technology. Our specialized services range from testing and certifications to calibration, prototyping, demonstrations, scale-up and consulting.

The NRC is committed to supporting our clients and collaborators with testing and technical services based on our unique research expertise and infrastructure. The NRC is equally committed to acting diligently to avoid knowingly engaging in routine testing services that may be delivered through Canadian private-sector laboratories offering such services. The NRC will endeavour to refer clients to Canadian private-sector labs when appropriate and will explore opportunities to license/transfer testing methodologies to Canadian private-sector service providers as circumstances warrant.

In Ottawa, NRC Aerospace conducts research on issues affecting the design, strength, durability, structural integrity and performance of new and legacy aircraft structures and components. We also develop new design, analysis, and manufacturing technologies for structures and materials, as well as for noise and vibration control. Technologies to support existing aircraft fleets are another area of study.
