Elbit Systems Land and C4I ("Elbit Systems") and CAE today announced at CANSEC the signing of an exclusive agreement to offer Elbit Systems' combat-proven Dominator-C and CAE's comprehensive in-service support program to meet the Canadian Army's requirement for a next-generation Integrated Soldier System solution.
The Elbit Systems/CAE team includes L-3 Electronic System Services as a major subcontractor. The Integrated Soldier System Program (ISSP) solution will be on display at CAE's booth (#1611) during CANSEC, Canada's largest defence technology showcase.
Under the ISSP, the Canadian Army has established a requirement to significantly enhance tactical level individual and team capability, mobility and C4I performance to conduct land operations with an integrated soldier system. Elbit and CAE have formed a strong Canadian team designed to offer the best combination of technology, experience and in-country capability to meet Canadian-specific requirements while reducing technical, cost, and schedule risks.
"CAE's comprehensive Canadian-based in-service support solutions and human factor engineering (HFE) expertise are the perfect match with Elbit's effective and proven Integrated Soldier System design deployed in multiple countries," said Bezhalel (Butzi) Machlis, General Manager of Elbit Systems Land and C4I division.
"We are pleased to partner with Elbit, a recognized global leader in providing integrated soldier systems, to offer Canada a tailored, world-class solution designed specifically for the Canadian Army," said Pietro D'Ulisse, CAE's Vice President and Business Leader Military Products Training and Services in Canada. "Our wealth of experience with in-service support, training systems and human factor engineering helps make CAE an ideal partner for Elbit, and will help ensure the Canadian Army receives a proven, modular solution that is fully supported for the long-term here in Canada."
The fourth-generation Dominator-C is an integrated soldier system based on a proven suite of technologies. There are thousands of fielded and operationally proven systems worldwide. The Dominator-C Integrated Soldier System platform is light weight, low power, and highly integrated in a small form factor to deliver superior mobility and readiness. It offers a real-time common operating picture on personal displays, allowing soldiers to send and receive live target and mission data as well as transmit images and positions up the chain of command. These real-time capabilities effectively close the "sensor-to-shooter" timeframe, thus enabling commanders to better manage combat operations.
