In-Service Support


Key components of the current Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Expeditionary bed-down capability are the multiple variants of Mobile Expandable Container Configuration (MECC) and Soft-wall Shelters. In order to ensure that this equipment continues to be available to meet CAF operational requirements, a renewed Repair and Overhaul (R&O) contract is required. The CAF has approximately 500 MECC and Soft-wall Shelters currently in service. This contract may be impacted by Intellectual Property rights.


Department of National Defence has a requirement for R&O services to be performed on MECC and Soft-wall shelters. These shelters are positioned throughout Canada and at operational sites where the CAF are deployed. Work will be conducted and completed either in Canada, at CAF deployed operations or at the contractor’s facility.
