NORAD, or the North American Air [Aerospace] Defence Agreement brought Canada and the United States together in partnership for their mutual defence of North America. One of the majore initiatives under NORAD was the creation and running of radar systems.
Canada was by no means alone in their use of radar during the Cold War. The United States had their own initiatives outside of NORAD. Since the Soviet Union and the United States were competing, the Soviets too delved into radar. NATO and the Europeans drew on radar in the form of early warning systems as well as airborne radar. Notably, West Germany and Israel teamed up to counter Soviet radar.
