Terma’s Scanter 6002 radar system has been selected for the Royal Canadian Navy’s (RCN) Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS) programme, the company announced on 24 October.

Terma will provide the radar system to Lockheed Martin Canada, who was selected by Irving Shipbuilding to provide its combat management system, CMS 330, for the RCN’s new fleet of AOPS currently under construction at the Halifax Shipyard.

Terma has signed Canadian company Nanowave Technologies as its research and development partner in the programme.

Justin Miller, president and CEO, Nanowave Technologies, said: ‘Entering into innovative partnerships and co-development projects with international defence companies, such as Terma and Lockheed Martin, is essential for local high-tech firms such as ours that rely almost exclusively on exports for success.

‘Our work as a result of Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy allows us to develop unique solutions that we can bring to the international market and further support highly skilled jobs here in Canada.’
