About the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC)

The new Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) will be an advanced and modern combat ship, equipped with next generation technology to capably support and protect the men and women of the Royal Canadian Navy as they fulfill their wide range of missions around the world, from humanitarian assistance to high-intensity conflicts, for the next 40+ years.

Proven and Trusted Partners

With decades of partnership with the Government of Canada and experience in delivering complex naval programs to the Royal Canadian Navy, Irving Shipbuilding Inc. and the Lockheed Martin Canada-led design team will successfully steer the CSC’s combat management systems from design to delivery.
Irving Shipbuilding Inc. is building 15 new Canadian Surface Combatants at its Halifax shipyard as part of the  National Shipbuilding Strategy, the Government of Canada’s long-term strategy that, in addition to renewing the federal fleet, is reinvigorating the shipbuilding sector, an industry sector vital to Canadian sovereignty.
Irving Shipbuilding Inc. has engaged Lockheed Martin Canada to lead the design team, a powerhouse consortium of companies ( BAE Systems, CAE, L3 Harris, MDA, and Ultra Electronics) and suppliers that will design the ship and integrate the CSC’s combat management system, right here in Canada.
