Bringing advanced connectivity to Canada's armed forces

Whether performing sovereignty patrol, search and rescue missions across the Canadian landscape, or a multinational interdiction campaign, mission success requires an enabled network with a proven ability to connect – anywhere, anytime.

As Rockwell Collins expands its presence in Canada, the company plans to make several news announcements at CANSEC 2013 regarding important capabilities that the company is developing for the Canadian military market.

Rockwell Collins specializes in leveraging commercial avionics for military applications while also providing its customers with high performance communications in any environment. Journalists and show attendees are invited to the company’s exhibit at CANSEC 2013 (Booth 1103) to learn more about remote networked systems and navigation solutions, including:

  • SubNet Relay HF/VHF/UHF

Rockwell Collins is committed to serving its Canadian customers. With a workforce of more than 130 engineers, program managers and support staff in Ontario and Quebec, Rockwell Collins has a well-established and growing presence in Canada and is actively involved in the local communities. The Montreal facility serves to facilitate Commercial Systems sales to the Canadian civil aviation community. It is an important element in the company’s strategic alliance with Bombardier Aerospace, through which Rockwell Collins provides that customer engineering and operations support.

The recently expanded facility in Ottawa specializes in the design and development of wireless, ad hoc networking technologies, including battlefield modeling and simulation of tactical networks. The SubNet Relay Technology developed there is in use with customers worldwide, deployed with some of the world’s major navies. Additionally, the Canadian-designed Tactical Application and Communication Test Bed enables customers to simulate operational military scenarios using models of military applications, devices and protocols through a fully distributed discrete event communication simulator.

The facility also serves to coordinate customer service and repairs for Rockwell Collins products sold to Canadian military and commercial customers including Intermediate-level repair and service capability for the Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) Link 16 terminals installed on Canadian Forces’ CF-18 fighters and ARC-210 radios in use on all RCAF fleets of aircraft.
