Canada to Receive T55-GA-714A Engines for its CH-47 Helicopters

Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notified the US Congress on 8 April of a possible foreign military sale (FMS) to Canada of 36 T55-GA-714A engines in support of the Canadian commercial purchase of CH-47 Chinook helicopters.
As the DSCA reports, Canada has requested a possible sale of 36 T55-GA-714A engines, spare and repairs parts, support and test equipment, personnel training and training equipment as well as associated support services. The estimated cost for this FMS, which will be awarded to Honeywell International, is $71 million (€53 million).
According to the DCSA, the engines will be used in Chinook CH-47 helicopters “with the objective of supporting the movement of troops and logistics when deployed.” The agency further explained that the proposed sale will allow Canada to strengthen its homeland defence, and improve humanitarian and disaster mobilisation and response.

The CH-47 are used by the Canadian Armed Forces for a variety of tasks, including troop movement, medical evacuations, aircraft recovery, parachute drops, search and rescue, disaster relief, fire-fighting, and heavy construction.

The T55-GA-714A engine, built by Phoenix-based Honeywell, delivers more than 4800hp, enabling the CH-47 to reach speeds in excess of 175mph and to transport payloads exceeding 20,000lb.

Canadian Navy Dodges Fleet Reductions
The Canadian Navy appears to have avoided a number of significant cuts to its fleet that would have severely limited its operational effectiveness, though a directive from the service's commander last month still raises serious concerns about the state of the fleet.

Last month, Vice Adm. Dean McFadden, chief of Canadian Maritime Staff and Commander of the Canadian Navy, wrote a letter to service officials outlining a series of changes that would result from a lack of funding. Six of the Navy's 12 Kingston-class coastal defense vessels would cease regular operations, while three Halifax-class frigates would take their place conducting limited patrol missions. The combat systems on two frigates and a destroyer would only be "minimally supported" for safe navigation and communications, and the missile defense systems on the Protecteur-class supply ships and some anti-submarine warfare capabilities on Iroquois class destroyers would not be supported.

Chief of the Defense Staff Walter Natynczyk has since reversed course on these program reductions, however. "We're going to rescind the order and have a look at the resources that are being provided" for Navy operations, Natynczyk announced at a May 14 press conference. Natynczyk's order followed a proclamation from Defence Minister Peter MacKay that the Navy had enough funding to keep its entire fleet operational. MacKay told reporters that the Navy's budget saw a CAD200 million increase this year, and that future spending will continue "to increase the capability of the Canadian Navy."

Although the Navy is in the clear for the time being, McFadden's order is telling of the budgetary pressure facing the service, and the military as a whole. Army operations in Afghanistan continue to eat up a significant amount of defense funding, and recent economic troubles have forced the Department of National Defence (DND) to slow overall budget growth over the coming years. The Navy, for its part, also has planned a series of modernization efforts that will require continued support from the DND budget. Current programs include modernizing its Halifax class frigates and preparing its Victoria class submarines for service, buying a fleet of arctic patrol ships, and designing and building new Joint Support Ships. In the long term, the Navy is also working to develop a replacement for its destroyers and frigates.

With the Navy already feeling the need to limit operations, the situation could deteriorate when the service begins buying new auxiliaries and surface combatants. Some of this pressure should at least begin to ease, however, as Ottawa winds down its combat mission in Afghanistan by December 2011

Canadian Navy Helicopters to Undergo Second Set of Engine Changes
The Canadian Navy's fleet of Sikorsky CH-148 Cyclone maritime helicopters will require a second set of engine changes, according to the manufacturer.
Early reports indicate that the Cyclone was fitted with the CT7-8A1 engine, which made the helicopter heavier and less efficient than expected.
A Sikorsky spokeswoman said the engine redesign for the General Electric engines would produce 10% more horsepower for the fleet of 28 Cyclones, according to winnipegfreepress.com.
Currently, General Electric is developing the new upgraded CT7-8A7 engines to equip the final variant of the Cyclone helicopter.
The Cyclone was originally scheduled to replace the navy's aging fleet of Sea Kings in November 2008 but renegotiations between the parties pushed the deadline back to June 2012.

Canadian Forces Demo Hornet Launches Its 2010 Show Season

BAGOTVILLE, QC – The Canadian Forces CF-18 national demonstration jet will be dazzling audiences across North America as it launches its 2010 air show season starting this weekend at the Jones Beach Air Show in New York.
Captain Brian Bews of 425 Tactical Fighter Squadron based at 3 Wing, Bagotville, Quebec, is this year’s Demonstration Pilot. “I am incredibly excited to be chosen as this year’s demo pilot,” he said. “It’s a pretty small group that gets to fly Hornets and a significantly smaller group that is chosen to be demo pilots. It’s a huge honour to represent Canada for 2010.”
In tribute to the Canadian Navy, the Air Force will adopt the Canadian Navy Centennial (CNC) as it’s theme for the 2010 air show season. “We are looking forward to celebrating the Navy’s Centennial,” said Major-General Yvan Blondin, Commander of 1 Canadian Air Division in Winnipeg. “It is a proud moment for every Canadian.”
The demonstration jet’s tails have been specially painted to mark this important milestone. Featuring classic Canadian Air Force and Navy motifs and a striking paint design, the CNC theme is featured on both tails, rendered in freehand airbrush and paint gun murals in subdued blues. The tri-colour Royal Canadian Navy Roundel from the 1950s is featured on the fuselage.
“Knowing the type of outreach achieved by this Demo Team, we couldn’t ask for a better partner,” said Rear-Admiral Tyrone Pile, Commander Maritime Forces Pacific

Insitu ScanEagle Surpasses 17,000 Combat Flight Hours with Canadian Forces

BINGEN, Wash. | Insitu Inc.’s ScanEagle unmanned aircraft system (UAS) recently logged more than 17,000 combat flight hours and 1,700 sorties with the Canadian Forces, delivering the most advanced intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance (ISR) to meet the mission-critical needs of Canadian defence customers.

Insitu’s Canadian partner ING Engineering deploys field service representatives with extensive military backgrounds to provide cutting-edge ISR in support of Canadian defence efforts in Afghanistan and Canada. ScanEagle has been deployed with the Canadian Forces in theater since 2008 and it recently completed a successful maritime flight demonstration aboard Canadian naval vessel HMCS Glace Bay.

Insitu has experience operating in various environments and performing multiple missions, from anti-piracy and counter-terrorism missions to Arctic research and emergency response exercises. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, in cooperation with The University of Alaska, used ScanEagle in the Bering Sea to monitor ice seal habitat preferences and sensitivity to climate change. ScanEagle’s capability of operating in cold-weather environments makes this versatile UAS an ideal solution for various Canadian defence, security and environmental needs, including remote cold-weather missions.

“We have a proven track record supporting Canadian operations overseas,” said Insitu Vice President of Sustainment Operations and General Manager Mary Margaret Evans. “And we look forward to continuing and expanding our relationship with Canadian Forces in the future.”

Canada Accepts First Of 17 Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules

MARIETTA, Ga., June 4th, 2010 -- Canada formally accepted the first of 17 Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] C-130J Super Hercules aircraft today at ceremonies here and at Canadian Forces Base Trenton.

Canada finalized its CC-130J contract with Lockheed Martin in December 2007, with a subsequent agreement from the U.S. Air Force to ensure an early delivery of the first two Canadian aircraft. The balance will be delivered by the end of 2012. The CC-130Js (the Canadian designation) are the "stretched" configuration of the C-130J and are of similar specification to those already operated by the U.S. and other worldwide air forces.

"This year is the 50th anniversary of the first CC-130 Hercules aircraft accepted by Canada," said the Honourable Peter MacKay, the Canadian Minister of National Defence. "I am proud to mark this milestone by welcoming the J-model Hercules into our fleet – on budget and on schedule – ensuring the Canadian Forces have the equipment it needs to be a modern, multi-role force able to take on the challenges of the 21st century."

"Lockheed Martin is proud to again support Canada and the Canadian Forces," said Tony Frese, Lockheed Martin C-130J program director. "The C-130J Super Hercules is an operationally proven platform and the ideal aircraft to replace Canada's existing C 130 fleet. The current C-130s have been Canada's indomitable workhorse for decades and this new aircraft will now meet the demanding tactical airlift needs of the Canadian Forces."

The C-130J generates greater operational efficiency than Canada's existing E and H models, by flying further, faster, with more payload and higher reliability. The aircraft's increased performance gives it an enhanced range with a payload capability of over 4,000 nautical miles. In addition, its short-field performance allows the aircraft to engage in direct support missions for frontline forces down to the last tactical mile.

C-130Js are currently deployed in several theatres and are operating at a high tempo efficiently and reliably. C-130Js are used daily for troop and equipment re-supply via ground delivery and airdrop, for air-to-air refueling, ground refueling, humanitarian relief and search and rescue.

Lockheed Martin recently announced the team of Canadian companies that will provide maintenance and support for Canada's new CC 130J fleet. The initial in-service support (ISS) contract period is for six-and-a-half years from contract award in December 2009 to June 30, 2016.

"Through a rigorous and competitive process, we assembled a team to support Canada's CC 130J fleet that rivals any such team in the world," Frese said."This team – as well as the expertise and capabilities in Canada to fulfill our industrial benefits obligation – stands as a testament to the quality of Canada's high-technology industrial base."

Avions de chasse: l'armée a fait son choix


Le contrat de six milliards serait accordé à Lockheed Martin, sans véritable appel d'offres. Dans le milieu de la défense, c'est la surprise.

Les Forces canadiennes veulent acquérir le F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, de la multinationale américaine Lockheed Martin. L’entreprise serait prête à garantir au Canada un prix tout juste sous les 100 millions de dollars l’unité. L’avion, qui n’est pas encore en production, sera doté des dernières technologies et sera furtif (difficile à détecter par les radars).

Le dossier du remplacement des avions de chasse CF-18 bouge plus rapidement que prévu. Selon les informations obtenues par Le Devoir, les Forces canadiennes recommandent au gouvernement d'acheter le F-35 Joint Strike Fighter de la multinationale américaine Lockheed Martin. L'appel d'offres serait rédigé de manière à ce que les autres manufacturiers puissent difficilement se qualifier

Canadian Navy Renegotiates CH-148 Helicopter Order

The Canadian Navy will receive only six of the planned 19 CH-148 multirole shipboard helicopters from Sikorsky by June 2012, as confirmed during renegotiations by the Department of Defence.
Sikorsky is acquiring a total of 28 CH-148 Cyclone helicopters to replace the Canadian Navy's Sea King aircraft under a C$5bn ($4.7bn) contract awarded in November 2004.
As per the renegotiated deal, Sikorsky will deliver the CH-148 helicopters at a rate of one a month beginning in November 2010, according to ctv.ca.
A total of 19 helicopters were scheduled to be delivered by June 2012, however, the defence department that said only six helicopters would be sent to Canadian bases by that time.
Defence Department spokeswoman Lianne Lebel said six helicopters would be sufficient to complete the necessary operational testing and training until fully compliant helicopters were delivered.
"The remaining 22 helicopters with upgraded engines will begin flying to Canadian bases in 2012, while the six early choppers will be sent back to have their engines retrofitted," she said.
Deliveries of the helicopters, originally scheduled to begin in November 2008, will begin in November this year

Marine: Ottawa veut deux navires pour 2,6 milliards

Ottawa a relancé son projet d'achat de deux nouveaux navires de soutien interarmées pour la Marine canadienne, après qu'un plan semblable ait échoué il y a deux ans. Le coût de cette acquisition pourrait s'élever à 2,6 milliards de dollars.

Le ministre de la Défense, Peter MacKay, a annoncé la nouvelle, mercredi, en conférence de presse à Halifax. Il a affirmé que ces navires représenteront un avantage important pour les opérations de la Marine dans le Nord canadien, grâce à leur capacité d'effectuer de longs déploiements. Les navires pourraient aussi être utilisés pour des missions à l'étranger.
M. MacKay a aussi soutenu que les nouveaux navires amélioreront la capacité de l'armée à faire face à des catastrophes et des missions humanitaires, telle que celle qui a eu lieu en janvier en Haïti.
La dernière tentative du gouvernement fédéral pour l'acquisition de navires de soutien a avorté il y a deux ans. Selon le ministre de la Défense, les soumissions présentées à l'époque par les fournisseurs ne correspondaient pas aux attentes.

Après un appel d'offres, ces navires seront construits par un chantier naval canadien, a assuré M. MacKay, mais le choix de ce lieu ne sera pas effectué avant deux ans.
Le porte-parole néo-démocrate en matière de Défense, Peter Stoffer, a souligné que le même processus avait déjà capoté par le passé, ce qui place, à son avis, un point d'interrogation sur le succès de cette tentative.
«Qu'est-ce que vous (le gouvernement) avez fait dans les deux dernières années?», a-t-il demandé dans le cadre d'une entrevue.
Le gouvernement libéral avait d'abord annoncé, en 2004, un plan pour remplacer les navires de soutien âgés de la Marine qui comptaient 40 ans de service.
Après que le Parti conservateur ait pris le pouvoir en 2006, le gouvernement a manifesté son intention de faire construire trois nouveaux navires de soutien au coût de 2,1 milliards de dollars.
Le projet a été mis en suspens à l'été 2008. Le ministère fédéral des Travaux publics avait alors affirmé que les soumissions de l'industrie dépassaient le budget alloué pour cet investissement et qu'elles ne correspondaient pas aux exigences.
«Nous sommmes absolument déterminé à faire réussir ce projet», a soutenu le ministre MacKay.
Contrairement au processus débuté en 2006, l'achat d'un troisième navire est seulement optionnel, selon le gouvernement.
«Cela fera partie des négociations qui se dérouleront une fois que nous avons choisi la conception du navire», a affirmé la ministre des Travaux publics, Rona Ambrose.
Eric Lerhe, un commodore de la Marine à la retraite, a argué qu'il ne croyait pas qu'un troisième navire pourra être construit à l'intérieur de l'enveloppe budgétaire prévue.

The estimated cost is $377 million.

The government of Canada has requested a possible sale of 10 AN/TPQ-36 (EQ-36) Enhanced FIREFINDER Radars or 10 AN/MPQ-64F1 SENTINEL Radars, 10 AN/VRC-92E or AN/VRC-92F Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) Vehicular Dual Long-Range System Radios; 10 SENTINEL 11521A High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs), 10 AN/TPX 57 Identification Friend or Foe (IFF), trailers, generators, repair and return support, tool and test equipment, communications support equipment, U.S. Government and contractor technical and logistics personnel support services, support equipment, spare and repair parts, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $377 million.

The proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by improving the security of a NATO ally that has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in North America. The proposed equipment sale will assist Canada in modernizing its forces. This will promote Canadian interoperability with U.S. forces and allow both countries to work together on future operations. The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

Canada Selects Lockheed Martin F-35 For Next-Generation Fighter

FORT WORTH, Texas, July 16th, 2010 -- The Government of Canada today announced plans to acquire the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II as the country’s next-generation fighter aircraft. The F-35 will replace Canada’s fleet of CF-18 Hornets that entered service in the early 1980s.

“We’re very pleased with the decision and are committed to supporting the Government of Canada in moving forward with the F-35,” said Tom Burbage, Lockheed Martin executive vice president and general manager of F-35 Program Integration. “The Lightning II will help ensure Canada’s national security, and also positions Canadian industry to immediately capture long-term work that will endure for the next 30 years.”

The F-35 is a supersonic, multi-role, 5th generation stealth fighter developed and funded by a consortium of nine countries, including Canada. It is designed to excel in both air-to-air and air-to-ground operations and features the most comprehensive and powerful avionics of any fighter ever produced. Canada plans to acquire 65 F-35s to replace the CF-18 fleet that is currently in service. Delivery of Canada’s F-35s will begin in 2016.

Three F-35 variants derived from a common design, developed together and using the same sustainment infrastructure worldwide, will replace at least 13 types of aircraft for 11 nations initially, making the Lightning II the most cost-effective fighter program in history.

Lockheed Martin is developing the F-35 with its principal industrial partners, Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems. Two separate, interchangeable F-35 engines are under development: the Pratt & Whitney F135 and the GE Rolls-Royce Fighter Engine Team F136.

Canada formally commits to buy 65 F-35s
By Stephen Trimble

The Canadian government formally committed today to buy 65 Lockheed Martin F-35s six years ahead of first delivery in order to qualify national industry to bid for more work in the multi-national programme.

Since the first aircraft will arrive in 2016, the commitment by Ottawa does not need to be sealed by a contract until at least 2013.

By then, Lockheed expects the F-35 to be approaching peak production rates, with one aircraft delivered every working day.

Canadian officials have valued the cost of the acquisition at CAD$9 billion (US$8.5 billion), or about CAD$138 million per aircraft, including engines, weapons and sensors.

An additional contract for maintenance support is expected to also cost multiple billions of dollars more, but Canadian government officials declined to provide an approximate estimate as the contract remains in negotiations.

Critics in Canada's Labour Party attacked the Harper government for making a commitment on a sole-source basis six years in advance of delivery.

The Department of National Defence had several options. For the past year, Boeing has marketed the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and Eurofighter has offered the Typhoon to Ottawa as alternatives to the F-35.

After announcing the commitment, Canada Minister of Industry Tony Clement responded that the F-35 was selected in 2002 by the previous Labour government after the US competition between Lockheed and Boeing for the Joint Strike Fighter contract.

"I am questioning the [Labour Party's] hypocrisy which seems to soar higher than this aircraft," Clement says.

Canadian industry has received about CAD$350 million in F-35-related work since joining the nine-member international partnership programme eight years ago.

As the F-35 production rate climbs to 250 aircraft per year, Lockheed intends to sign up more companies among the aircraft's committed buyers to handle the extra workload.

Making the commitment "ensues that Canadian companies will have opportunites to compete for contracts," Clement says.

Un F-18 s'écrase lors d'un entraînement en Alberta

Selon un communiqué des Forces armées canadiennes, le capitaine Brian Bews, basé à Bagotville au Québec, a pu s'éjecter de l'appareil avec succès et a été secouru



Un pilote de CF-18 a été transporté à l'hôpital avec des blessures de nature encore inconnue, vendredi, après l'écrasement de son appareil pendant une séance d'entraînement pour un spectacle aérien, en Alberta.
Selon un communiqué des Forces armées canadiennes, le capitaine Brian Bews, basé à Bagotville au Québec, a pu s'éjecter de l'appareil avec succès et a été secouru.

L'accident s'est produit aux environs de midi, à l'aéroport de district de la municipalité de Lethbridge, dans le sud de l'Alberta.


Les autorités de la Base des Forces canadiennes Cold Lake ont affirmé que le pilote avait atterri avec force sur le sol et avait été traîné sur la piste.

Selon la capitaine Holly Brown, il était encore trop tôt pour connaître l'état de santé exact du pilote, mais il serait toujours vivant.

Le CF-18 qu'il pilotait était un appareil uniquement utilisé pour les spectacles aériens, a précisé la capitaine Brown, de la 17e Escadre Winnipeg.

Une enquête menée par les autorités militaires et le ministère des Transports a débuté dès que les services d'urgences ont établi le périmètre de sécurité.

La police a affirmé que personne au sol n'avait été blessé.

Le président du spectacle aérien, Robb Engen, a indiqué que l'aéroport de district était fermé au trafic aérien. Une décision quant à la tenue de l'événement sera prise plus tard vendredi.

Selon des témoins, le pilote effectuait des manoeuvres à basse altitude lorsque l'appareil a semblé perdre de la puissance et que des composantes s'en sont détachées.

Selon un site Internet du ministère de la Défense, le capitaine Bews s'est enrôlé dans les Forces canadiennes en 1999. Il a suivi une formation de pilote de l'OTAN à Moose Jaw, en Saskatchewan. Il a été choisi pour piloter un chasseur. En 2004, il réalisait un rêve en volant sur un CF-18 Hornet. Il a été muté à la base de Bagotville en 2008.

Remainder of 2010 Canadian CF-18 Demo Team shows cancelled

Winnipeg, Man. – The remainder of the 2010 air show season for the Canadian Forces CF-18 Demonstration Team, which comprises eight air show venues across North America, has been cancelled today.
Insufficient time to nominate and fully prepare a substitute pilot has made the continuation of the 2010 show season untenable. Air shows at which the Demo Team was scheduled to perform are:

  • Wetaskiwin Air Show: Wetaskiwin, Alta., August 6-7
  • Abbotsford International Airshow: Abbotsford, B.C., August 13-15
  • Windsor International Air Show: Windsor, Ont., August 21-22
  • Val d’Or Air Show: Val d’Or, Que., August 28-29
  • Canadian International Air Show: Toronto, Ont., September 4-6
  • Nova Scotia International Air Show: Shearwater, N.S., September 11-12
  • California International Airshow: Salinas, CA, October 2-3
  • San FranciscoFleet Week: San Francisco, CA, October 9-10

The 2010 Demo Hornet jet crashed and was destroyed on July 23 during a practice session for the Alberta International Airshow in Lethbridge, Alta. Captain Brian Bews, the demo pilot from 425 Tactical Fighter Squadron based at 3 Wing Bagotville, Que., successfully ejected from the aircraft and is currently recovering from the back injury he sustained during the ejection sequence. He is expected to make a full recovery, but is not expected to fly for several months.
“It is unfortunate we will not be able to finish the season,” said Brigadier-General Richard Foster, Acting Commander 1 Canadian Air Division, “but we simply cannot and will not rush the preparation of another demo pilot. The well-being of our pilots and their safety will always be the deciding factors in such decisions.”
The exact cause of the crash is unknown at this time. A Flight Safety investigation is currently underway.

Canadian Air Force Intercepts Russian Bombers
The Canadian Air Force has intercepted two Russian strategic bombers that entered Canadian airspace while patrolling over the Atlantic Ocean.
Canada sent two F-18 jets from the Bagotville Air Force Base in Quebec after identifying two Russian Tu-95 Bears in the country's buffer zone, according to RIA Novosti.
Canadian Defence Minister Peter MacKay said that the Russian planes did not enter Canada's sovereign airspace, but it entered the 300nm zone within the country.
The Canadian F-18 pilots made contact with the Tu-95 pilots and forced them to turn north-east out of Canadian airspace.
Russia resumed strategic bomber patrol flights over the Pacific, Atlantic and Arctic oceans in August 2007, following an order from President Vladimir Putin.
The Russian Air Force carries out regular patrols performed by Tu-95 Bear, Tu-160 Blackjack strategic bombers and Tu-22M3 Backfire long-range bombers.

Je ne me suis pas trompé les gars, je faisais un commentaire sur l'info en ramenant le coût d'acquisition, "all inclusive", en €, afin de confronter celui-ci à celui de ses petits camarades moins bien pourvus.

Canada buys Maveric MUAV
Before the month is out, Canadian forces will be flying the Maveric miniature unmanned aerial vehicle (MUAV) under a $2.9 million deal with Prioria, the company announced 10 Aug.
Prioria will supply the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) and Canadian Forces with five Maveric systems to fulfil MUAV requirements at home and in Canada's operation Athena in Afghanistan, the company says.
The intelligence-gathering Maveric, which debuted in 2008, is equipped image-stabilized cameras and an on-board processor able to interpret the streaming visual data for collision avoidance cues. Using Prioria's proprietary algorithms and the company's 100g (0.04oz) on-board avionics suite, Maveric can autonomously sense and avoid certain fixed objects in its flight path. The 1.13kg (2.5lb) airframe also features bendable 73.6cm (29in) wings that wrap around the fuselage for tube stowage.
The first delivery of training planes is set for 16 Aug, says Prioira, with a 15 Oct delivery of operational aircraft and 15 Nov for final delivery and logistical support set up, says Prioria, with ING Engineering of Ottawa providing the DND with logistical support as a subcontractor. The first round of training is already underway in Florida

Lockheed to Modernise Canadian Navy's Halifax Combat Systems
Lockheed has completed a critical design review (CDR) with the Canadian Navy, as part of a deal to modernise the combat systems on Halifax Class multimission frigates.
Under the combat systems integration contract awarded in 2008, Lockheed will provide a new command and control system, radars, tactical data links, electronic support measures and other warfare capabilities to 12 Halifax ships.
The current command and control systems will be maintained by the company until the entire fleet is modernised.
The CDR will broadly cover the designs and plans for shipboard systems, trainers and facilities, and evaluate the design and progress on the land-based and on-board trainer systems along with the upgrades to the Canadian Navy.
Lockheed Canada is the original manufacturer and in-service support provider for both the Halifax and Iroquois Class vessels.
