Patents in space : highlighting innovation in the Canadian space sector.: Iu54-68/1-2018E-PDF

"Measuring innovation is a challenging task. However, patent data is a good starting point to address this challenge as it provides important information on the specific technical knowledge embedded within inventions. This report, a collaborative effort by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO), shines a light onto patent activity in the Canadian space sector. In broad terms, this report is the culmination of a complete literature review, a compilation of organization specific data from the CSA’s annual State of the Canadian Space Sector survey and a robust patent search strategy"--Executive summary, p. 3.
