CARDE
Canadian
Armament Research and Development Establishment.
      C.A.R.D.E.
was an established organization Avro Canada used to test
it's models before going into full production. Located
at Pt. Petre Ontario the facilities were centered around
a 2 story main control and administration center. Also
included were the radar shack/photo section which was
responsible for tracking and high speed film developing,
assembly shack, camera shack, security building and an
equipment and maintenance garage.
     The
completed models, which took 13 months to prepare, were
delivered completed to the facility to test. Carde staff
then assembled the test flight models to the "NIKE" boosters.
     The
Pt. Petre facility was a missile test range, where several
different types of missiles were test fired into Lake
Ontario. Aerodynamic testing and rocket testing was the
sole purpose of this facility.
     Missiles
tested there were the "Sparrow", Hughes "M-1" guided,
Canadian designed "Velvet Glove", to name a
few.
There
are over 600 rockets and missiles in the area.
