Canada's Combat Ship Team (CCST) has submitted its final proposal for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) project to prime contractor Irving Shipbuilding in Halifax.
Canada's Combat Ship Team combines Lockheed Martin, BAE Systems' Type 26 Global Combat Ship, CAE, MDA, L3 Technologies, and Ultra Electronics.
The Type 26 requires only minor change to meet Canada's CSC needs and builds upon knowledge gained from the UK's Type 26 Global Combat Ship and Australia's SEA 5000 programs, CCST said in a statement last Friday.
Canada's Combat Ship Team commits to spending billions in innovation across Canada's priority areas, including $2 billion in supplier development and $2 billion in Research and Development, and $200 million in Advanced Manufacturing.
The all-digital hull-mount sonar, UK Sonar 2150, which was specifically developed for the UK Royal Navy’s T-23 and T-26 frigates, will be manufactured by Ultra Electronics for the CSC.
