L-3 WESCAM announced today that it has been awarded an in-service support contract valued at $10 million by Public Works and Government Services Canada on behalf of the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND). The contract fulfills the DND’s requirement for long-term product support of its WESCAM electrooptical/
infrared (EO/IR) imaging systems and mission equipment packages as part of the Interoperable Griffon Reconnaissance Escort Surveillance System (INGRESS) program.
“We are extremely proud of how the systems are performing for the Canadian armed forces,” said John Dehne, president of L-3 WESCAM. “Together, the DND and WESCAM designed a life-cycle support package that ensures INGRESS systems will be properly maintained to provide the highest levels of operational readiness.”
Under the three-year contract, L-3 WESCAM will provide repair and overhaul, life-cycle management, technical investigations and engineering services, and other as-required tasks, encompassing spares, training and upgrades.
The mission equipment represented under the contract includes 21 systems in two distinct configurations, each including an MX™-15HDi and associated ancillary equipment, such as displays, multi-functional digital moving maps, digital data recorders and air-to-ground data links.
