Saab and Lockheed to develop command and control systems for Canadian Halifax class frigates
Posted by Frontier India Strategic and Defence

Saab and Lockheed Martin have signed a contract for the design and development of command and control systems for twelve Halifax class frigates for the Canadian Navy. The deal is valued at approximately SEK 1.1 billion for Saab.
Deliveries are planned for 2010-2017. As part of the contract, Saab shall supply two CEROS 200 fire-control systems to each vessel plus one onshore training facility. Software for the operator consoles and command and control systems is also included. This will lead to a modernization of the Navy's fleet. The complete system will be delivered by Lockheed Martin Canada.

For Saab, it began in 2004 at a meeting with the Canadian Navy. Canada needed to upgrade the command and control systems, radar systems and sights on its twelve frigates. The contract is the result of a long-term partnership between Saab and Lockheed Martin. Saab and Lockheed Martin first made contact in 2005.
The modularity and open architecture that characterizes 9LV Mk4 has been the key to ensuring that a speedy consensus was reached between the partners regarding the solutions and allocating the work.
The contract is subject to Canadian government approval...
