Rheinmetall secures Canadian Army sustainment contract

Rheinmetall secures Canadian Army sustainment contract

The prime has been awarded a contract to support the Canadian Armed Forces’ Persistent Surveillance System.

The prime has been awarded a contract to support the Canadian Armed Forces’ Persistent Surveillance System.

The Canadian government has awarded Rheinmetall a one-year sustainment contract for the delivery of repair and overhaul services for the eight Persistent Surveillance System (PSS) units currently in use by the Canadian Armed Forces.

The PSS consists of aerostat- and tower-based sensors connected to a ground station, designed to enable real-time sensor exploitation in the land C4ISR domain (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance).

Following initial procurement of the PSS in 2009, Rheinmetall completed a first in-service support contract from 2015 to 2021, with this latest contract open to annual extensions.

“We see this new contract as a demonstration of the Canadian Armed Forces’ trust in Rheinmetall Canada’s ability to maintain and upgrade their Persistent Surveillance Systems,” Pietro Mazzei, vice-president of Electronic Solutions at Rheinmetall Canada, said.
