Canadian Frigate Upgrade Goes International

The Canadian Navy is conducting a modernization program for their Halifax class frigates. Lockheed Martin Canada has won the contract to upgrade the electronics and command and control systems on board the ships. As part of this that company awarded the Israeli based Elbit Systems subsidiary, Elisra Systems, a contract for electronic warfare equipment.

That contract is worth about $55 million. Israel has had to develop a fairly sophisticated indigenous arms industry that covers all aspects from large weapon systems to small arms to electronics. In the last few years those companies have started to win foreign contracts. India recently has turned to Israel for an Airborne Early Warning (EAW) system. This contract demonstrates how capable the Israeli industry is, and is probably a sign of more such contracts to come.
