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.

NRC Aerospace is involved in several programs that assess rotorcraft handling qualities, in co-operation with government, industry, and educational institutions. NRC Aerospace has the expertise to assess how new or modified equipment, new control augmentation laws/theories, or degraded flight conditions can affect the performance of the pilot and the aircraft. In many cases, these assessments require the development of novel test procedures and equipment as well as the instruction of evaluators in flight test techniques and evaluation methods.

NRC has acquired an extensive set of information pertaining to the development of the Canadian Beaufort Sea. With this information, as well as a long history of research on ice forces on structures, NRC has established a Centre for Ice Loads on Offshore Structures. Its information primarily focuses on the ice loads that have been measured on structures placed offshore. Most of the data was collected over several years of exploration in Canada's Arctic.
