Lockheed Martin Canada received a three-year extension to its in-service support contract for the Royal Canadian Navy’s 12 Halifax-class frigates, the company announced on Tuesday.

The existing in-service support contract commenced in November 2008 with the award of the Halifax-class modernization project.

The in-service support contract also included support of the legacy Halifax-class system prior to ships entering the shipyard for modernization.

The combat management systems (CMS) support entails hardware and software support for the CMS 330, and the CMS to combat subsystem interfaces, ancillary systems and tools, as well as the integration of new weapons, sensors and information sources.

“We are pleased by the vote of confidence from our Royal Canadian Navy customer to continue this existing relationship,” said Gary Fudge, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin Canada Rotary Mission Systems. “As part of our Combat System Integrator portfolio, Lockheed Martin Canada has established a world class in-service support team which is also being recognized by our international customers.”
