The Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI) is a non-profit professional scientific and technical organization devoted to the advancement of the art, science and engineering of aeronautics, astronautics and associated technologies in Canada.
CASI provides a focus for communications and networking among the aeronautics and space community in Canada, and assists members in developing skills, exchanging information, and sharing talents in their areas of interest. It promotes Canadian competence and international competitiveness in aeronautics and space and their applications, and fosters national pride and international esteem for Canada’s accomplishments in these areas.
The Institute consists of 15 Branches that serve about 1,600 members in major cities across Canada, some hosted by universities and colleges. Sections cater to special interest groups, such as Aerodynamics, Aircraft Design and Development, Astronautics, Flight Mechanics and Operations, Propulsion, Structure and Materials. Constituent Societies serve members specializing in technologies such as Air Cushion Technology, Navigation, Remote Sensing.
CASI holds conferences, workshops and symposia each year which draw delegates from around the world. It has an extensive publications program, publishing two scientific journals that focus on the work and accomplishments of Canadian scientists and researchers. CASI’s official journal, Canadian Aeronautics and Space Journal, has been published quarterly since 1954. The Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing is the official journal of the Canadian Remote Sensing Society. CASI also publishes proceedings of its conferences and symposia, and keeps its members informed of Institute activities with the CASI Log. For more details visit the website at www.casi.ca
