Montreal - L-3 MAPPS announced today that it has been awarded a contract to supply degaussing systems for the Royal Canadian Navy's 12 KINGSTON-Class Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels. These advanced degaussing systems will be delivered and supported locally in collaboration with SAM Electronics, an L-3 company, which produces one of the most effective means of ship protection against modern sea mines. The SAM Electronics solution reduces the magnetic signature of ships to safe levels mitigating the threat from sea mines and has been successfully delivered to 15 of the world's leading navies.

"We are pleased to expand the scope of our product and service offerings in Canada to include electrical systems from L-3's SAM Electronics business," said Rangesh Kasturi, vice president of marketing and sales for L-3 MAPPS Marine Systems and Simulation. "As an industry leader, we are able to leverage our proven capabilities and the global footprint of L-3's Marine & Power Systems group of companies to meet the increasing requirements of the Royal Canadian Navy and the Canadian Coast Guard."


L-3 MAPPS has provided marine control systems, trainers and training services to the Royal Canadian Navy's ships and submarines for over 25 years, and is currently implementing the Halifax-Class Frigates Integrated Platform Management System upgrade contract.
