Ottawa-based Lockheed Martin Canada is experiencing increased international demand for the Combat Management System (CMS) 330.
The Chilean Navy has selected the CMS 330 for the upgrade of its ex-Royal Navy (RN) Type 23 frigates on 23 May and the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) awarded Lockheed Martin Canada a CAD180 million (USD134 million) contract to modernise the combat systems on board its two ANZAC-class frigates, with the CMS 330 as the backbone of that modernisation. Lockheed Martin Canada was also down-selected for the combat system integration of the Finnish Navy's Squadron 2020 project in December 2016.
With installation aboard the Royal Canadian Navy's (RCN's) Halifax-class frigates and Harry de Wolfe-class Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPSs) now under construction at Irving Shipbuilding's Halifax yard, the CMS 330 will be operated across at least four ship classes in three navies.
