CNC has a new logo

CNC-URSI has a new logo.

It has a landscape aspect ratio similar to the URSI logo but has a distinct shape and colour scheme that reflects Canada’s place on the globe and our national colours. The abbreviation CNC is equally understood in both English and French: Canadian National Committee - Comité National Canadien.

The red maple leaf is, of course, our national emblem. The red arc:

  • evokes images of Canada as country with significant northern presence,
  • recalls Canada’s many contributions to radio communications, wave propagation and remote sensing in the north, including topside sounding of the ionosphere and radar remote sensing of Arctic sea-ice, and
  • recognizes CNC-URSI as an organization that provides broad support to Radio Science researchers across the broad range of URSI interests.
