Thales and Team Vigilance Launch the Royal Canadian Navy's Next-Gen OPV

Thales today announced at CANSEC 2023 – alongside its Team Vigilance partners – that it will provide Combat Systems Integration (CSI) and Electronic Systems Integration (ESI) for the Vigilance Class OPV to modernize the Royal Canadian Navy’s future fleet and ensure paramount performance for meaningful missions at home and abroad.

In addition to Thales’ world-class electronic and combat systems integration capabilities, Thales Canada brings more than fifty years of experience supporting the RCN’s fleets and another thirteen years as a vital Tier-1 supplier under Canada’s NSS to Team Vigilance, adding to an already impressive combination of industrial leadership and Canadian know-how.

“It’s energizing to envision what Canada’s sailors and the RCN could gain from a paradigm shift in mid-sized OPVs: fewer crew needs through digitization and uncrewed systems; mission adaptability via modern sensor-suites; and future-proofing by way of artificial intelligence, connectivity, big data and IoT technologies. All this in a fully integrated, compact and versatile vessel – the outcome of a deep commitment among Team Vigilance partners to both Canada and to collaboration.” Chris Pogue, CEO, Thales Canada
