22nd March 2019 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Magellan Aerospace has received orders from the Canadian government to manufacture LUU-2 illumination flares for the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), the company announced on 18 March.  

The term of the contracts, worth a combined CAD$48 million, is five years.

The LUU-2 is an air-deployed high-intensity illumination flare, which the RCAF uses to support night time SAR operations with illumination. The flares produce about 1.8 million candlepower of visual illumination for five minutes.

The flares will be delivered from the Winnipeg facility’s propellant plant in Manitoba, Canada.
