EARCHWATER maritime radar from Thales and an electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensor dome from L3 Wescam Thales presents the product fitted to a Daesh-8 turboprop in operational use by PALaerspace. The complete system architecture was recently tested for certification. The Franco-German long-range maritime surveillance aircraft is coming into reality, based on the joint agreement between the two nations earlier last summer, to jointly develop and procure a next-generation maritime surveillance aircraft in the 2020s. Thales joins the programme with its offer for a full-scale mission package consisting of the mission-proven AMASCOS system.

Babcock and BAE Systems Achieve Milestone in Five-Year Programme

Lockheed Martin’s ‘Canada’s Combat Ship Team’ bid combines the company’s longstanding expertise in naval integration and its Canadian developed Combat Management System CMS 330 with BAE Systems’ Type 26 Global Combat Ship and high-tech platforms from top-pedigree Canadian innovators CAE, MDA, L3 Technologies and Ultra Electronics. As there are commonalities with the Australian and British Type 26s (chosen by Australia for its Hunter-class SEA 5000 programme and the Royal Navy’s Global Combat Ship), After a tortured and glacially slow procurement process the Canadian government announced on 19 October that the selected design for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) – the frigate-sized vessel that will form the backbone of the future Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) – is the Type 26 Global Combat Ship from BAE Systems. The company, in partnership with Lockheed Martin, which leads the consortium and will be the prime contractor, must now go through a due diligence phase and enter into detailed negotiations with Halifax-based Irving Shipbuilding, who will build the 15 vessels currently anticipated for the class.

Officials from BAE Systems have shared with MONCh that the company is looking at the potential future upgrade of its Type-997 ARTISAN and SAMPSON S-band (2.3 gigahertz/GHz to 2.5GHz/2.7GHz to 3.7GHz) naval surveillance radars. Both radars are in extensive use with the Royal Navy, the former equipping all members of the ‘Type-23/Duke’ class of frigates, the amphibious assault ships HMS Ocean and HMS Bulwark, and the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier, and the latter furnishing the ‘Type-45/Daring’ class of destroyers.
