Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


To provide the Halifax Class frigates with the next generation of Software Definable Radios capable of supporting modern information exchange requirements.


This project will provide the Halifax Class frigates with the next generation of Software Definable Radio equipment to support current and future Information Exchange Requirements for Line of Sight and Beyond Line of Sight ranges without the necessity of a satellite connection. The new equipment will be required to conform to the size, weight, power and heat constraints of the radio equipment rooms. The new equipment will be capable of supporting software waveforms compliant with legacy communications standards currently in use (such as radio teletype) as well as current/future standards such as Automatic Link Establishment and High Frequency IP.

Preliminary Estimate

  • $20 million to $49 million
