Canadian Contracts Strengthen Land Command Support System

March 4, 2024
The Canadian Army’s C4ISR system supplies extended environmental data to help decision making in critical situations.

Increased situational awareness is at the core of four contracts to General Dynamics Mission Systems—Canada for the nation’s Land Command Support System (LCSS). The contracts, with a cumulative value of $1.68 billion CA ($1.3 billion USD), support the Canadian Army’s Land Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) system.

The contracts cover the LCSS’s System of Systems Engineering & Integration, Core Network Sustainment Services, Applications Sustainment Services, and Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) technologies. The systems and technologies provide the Canadian military with extended sensory data to help accelerate decision-making in critical situations (see image above).

Canada’s land C4ISR systems are designed to enhance the capture and communication of sensory data within battlefield environments. Concerning work on the contracts, Andrew Shepherd, Vice-President Land & Joint Solutions for General Dynamics Mission Systems—Canada, said, “Over three decades ago, we were awarded a contract to create the first fully integrated voice and data network in the world—this was the beginning of the digitization of the Canadian Army. Today we are looking forward to furthering our collaborative partnership with Canada in order to meet the forward operational needs of the Canadian Armed Forces.”

He added, “We are both excited and proud to be on the ground alongside our soldiers, innovating and delivering state-of-the-art capabilities for the Canadian Army.”
