Leveraging Open Architecture System

Lockheed Martin Canada's innovative Combat Management System (CMS) is a core solution that adapts to a variety of subsystems. Building on this foundation, our combat system integration methodology was repurposed for surveillance purposes on AOPS.

A Trusted Solution for Canada's Navy

With more than three decades of demonstrating our commitment and capability to the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN), as the Combat System Integrator for the HALIFAX Class frigates, our team delivers valuable commonality to AOPS.

Lockheed Martin Canada's fielded solution offers a highly capable, low-risk solution for Canada's new patrol ships.

Strengthening Canadian Industry

Success on this program is in large part attributed to Lockheed Martin Canada's strong Canadian supply chain. Lockheed Martin Canada manages four Canada-based subcontractors as part of the AOPS contract, selected through competition in the design phase.

This approach demonstrates a commitment to delivering best quality and value for Canada.

“Lockheed Martin Canada is a key partner in achieving best quality and value for Canada in the production of the Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships. We have worked with them over the last 3 years to find the right command and surveillance solution to best serve the Navy in these important ships and to achieve the best overall benefit to Canada.”
Kevin McCoy, President, Irving Shipbilding Inc.

Strength in Execution

The skill and depth of our Canadian workforce continues to drive results for the RCN. Our foundation of a proven naval systems engineering team is strengthened by:

  • Leveraging our Canadian solution for new projects and exports, building naval capability and delivering economic value to Canada
  • Reaching into the vast naval technology resource base across Lockheed Martin Corporation worldwide
  • Investing in Canadian business and technology to develop high-value jobs, subcontracts and capability within the country
  • Leveraging talent cultivated in local universities and technical schools.
