Replace Existing Systems


To provide Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) self-defence to the Halifax Class frigate from target designation and missile lock. The capability currently resident in the Reprogrammable Advanced Multimode Shipborne ECM System (RAMSES), designated the AN/SLQ-503, needs to be upgraded or replaced.


The project will provide a capability that is part of ships’ layered defence doctrine used by NATO nations to enhance effectiveness in anti-ship missile defence . The new system will be integrated with the Halifax Class Combat Management System and must meet Canadian Security Establishment protocols. High level requirements are considered classified; however, reliance on the use of tactical libraries should be limited and be adaptable to rapidly evolving threats.
