L-3 Communications plans to open a design, engineering and support facility in Ottawa under the name L-3 Communication Systems – Canada. The new facility will include a communications system laboratory that will provide an integration test bed and demonstration environment for future marine communications architectures for both the surface and submarine fleets of the Royal Canadian Navy.
L-3 has a growing business base in Canada, with an increasing focus on maritime systems.
Recently, the L-3 Canada Marine Systems business was created to provide a single point of contact with access to the company’s wide array of products and services.
The company is implementing communications solutions for the Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship and Project Resolve auxiliary oiler replenishment programmes.
