Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS)

Canada’s Command and Surveillance System Integrator


Lockheed Martin Canada is a Tier 1 subcontractor to prime contractor Irving Shipbuilding Inc. working to deliver Canada's new Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS) as part of the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS).

Lockheed Martin Canada is responsible for key integration of data and information sources to increase the ships' situational awareness and provide command, control and decision support at all levels of command for the new vessels.

Our innovative Combat Management System (CMS) is a core solution that adapts to a variety of subsystems. Building on this foundation, our combat systems integration methodology was repurposed for surveillance purposes on AOPS.

With more than three decades of demonstrating our commitment and capability to the Royal Canadian Navy, as the combat system integrator for the HALIFAX Class Frigates, our team delivers valuable commonality to AOPS. Our fielded solution offers a highly capable, low-risk solution for Canada’s new patrol ships.
