General Dynamics supports combat systems on Halifax class

9th November 2020 - 15:22 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Six-year deal is worth $140 million

General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada is to support six combat systems aboard Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) Halifax-class frigates

A C$182 million ($140 million), six-year In-Service Support (ISS) contract, announced on 6 November, also covers RCN fleet schools, fleet maintenance facilities and RCN electronic systems test ranges for the Atlantic and Pacific.

This ISS contract will help to ensure that combat systems (including radar systems) ‘are ready for any mission’, General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada noted.

The company is also upgrading and maintaining underwater sensors on the Halifax-class ships via the Underwater Warfare Suite Upgrade contract.

The Halifax class completed a long-running Frigate Equipment Life Extension (FELEX) programme in 2018; according to Shephard Defence Insight, this included elements of the 9LV combat system to integrate with additional sensors and weapons installed under the programme.
