MDA has signed a contract with the NATO Communications and Information Agency to provide a new maritime command and control solution, the company announced on 21 December.

The contract, worth about $11.7 million, will see MDA develop a new system to support NATO's maritime command and control operations under Project Triton. The solution is based on modern software architecture and technology, and will be provided on both fixed and deployable systems.

MDA will also provide NATO with a stand-alone command and control visualisation capability which is planned to become the standardised map and object visualisation for all NATO information technology systems.

The MDA’s Triton system will provide the NATO community with an integrated, robust, and flexible capability supporting a set of services available throughout the Bi-Strategic Command Automated Information System and NATO operational theatres. The system will enable NATO and its members to establish and share a common view of maritime operations which will improve their situational awareness and decision-making processes.

Norman Hannaford, vice president and general manager, surveillance and intelligence business, MDA, said: ‘MDA is pleased to combine its strengths in command and control and maritime surveillance to provide NATO with the highest quality, operational maritime command and control system. We look forward to this award signaling the start of a long-term strategic partnership through which MDA's Canadian technology can support NATO's critical mission needs.’
