Rheinmetall Canada awarded ISTAR ISS contract
Rheinmetall Canada has been awarded an in-service support (ISS) contract to help maintain and strengthen the communications and information systems the Canadian Army depends on to inform and direct land operations.
The intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) ISS contract is worth CAD$57.49 million. The contract will support ISTAR components and software that ensures the exchange of data occurs seamlessly from sensing and intelligence-gathering equipment such as UAS, ground radars and the Land C4ISR system.
The LC4ISR is an integrated tactical system composed of various sensor, communication, networking, and information management sub-systems. Made up of numerous hardware, firmware and software elements, it is used by all Canadian Army vehicles, weapons platforms and headquarters to help coordinate and conduct modern operations.
The ISTAR support contract is one of four LC4ISR ISS contracts. Together, these contracts provide essential services that include hardware and software engineering work, fixing software issues, correcting any equipment problems, and analysing and maintaining system health. The ISS also supports specific LC4ISR equipment such as radios.
