Griffon Limited Life Extension

In-Service Support

Objective

The project will extend the life of the CH-146 Griffon beyond the current Estimated Life Expectancy so that the aircraft can continue to be operationally relevant and remain a vital contributor to the readiness of the Canadian Army and the Canadian Special Operations Force Command units well into the future. The extension will bridge the gap until a replacement capability is acquired through the Tactical Reconnaissance Utility Helicopter project.

Requirements

The project will replace obsolete cockpit instrumentation and radios with components that are supportable to 2030 and possibly beyond.  It may also include new digitally controlled engines as a package. Adaptation and integration of existing avionics and electronic flight instruments in the aircraft will enable an extension of the life of the Griffon weapon system.  The flight simulators will be modified to conform to the fleet.  Finally, the project will ensure integrated logistic support, supply of initial spares and training.

Joint Unmanned Surveillance and Target Acquisition System

New Systems

Objective

To acquire an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) weapon system to support Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) domestic and international operations.

Requirements

The near-real time beyond line of sight (BLOS) capability of an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) will significantly increase the persistence of airborne ISR, providing timely operationally relevant information, such that the Commander can use the information to make effective decisions. The UAS will complement existing ISTAR capabilities, increase maritime and arctic domain awareness and provide precision force application in support of Land and Special Operations Forces. It is envisioned that the UAS capability will reduce the time between the discovery and request for precision strike and the delivery of the effect. Additionally, the improved situational awareness will provide Commanders and the Whole of Government with better decision support for both domestic and expeditionary missions.

CC-130J Block 8 Upgrade

In-Service Support

Objective

The CC-130J upgrade will ensure compatibility with the future European and North American airspace requirements.

Requirements

The Global Implementation Plan of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for the Future of Air Navigation (FANS) mandates specific equipment in order to fly in much of the airspace where the CC-130J operates.  To comply with the Global Implementation Plan, the CC-130J requires Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS- B) and Future Air Navigation System 1A (FANS-1/A).  ADS-B is a global surveillance technology for tracking aircraft that will be required equipment by 2017 in the European Union airspace and 2020 to operate in  North America.  FANS-1/A are avionics that provide direct data link communication between the pilot and the air traffic controller to include air traffic control clearances, pilot requests and position reporting.  Air Traffic Oceanic Services require FANS-1/A for North Atlantic oceanic travel by 2018. This will ensure the Royal Canadian Air Force CC-130J is able to transit at optimum altitudes and routings, both in peacetime and in expeditionary operations.

It will target investment in advanced simulation architecture such as Live, Virtual, Constructive, thereby increasing overall training efficiency. LVC will allow the simulator to link to other Royal Canadian Air Force simulators across a distributed network, utilizing common industry protocols, such as High Level Architecture. In addition, it will link the simulator to live aircraft in a manner which is seamless to the CF-188 operator, greatly increasing the training value when utilizing live assets. The project will work in concert with the Canadian Advanced Synthetic Environment to ensure these enhancements are complementary to existing and future Royal Canadian Air Force weapons system simulations.

Omnibus Aviation Life Support Equipment Modernization

Replace Existing Systems

Objective

The objective of Omnibus Aviation Life Support Equipment Modernization  (OALSEMP) is to provide RCAF aircrew with a systems engineered solution that provides improved immersion protection and improved survival vest capability with significantly improved thermal management.

Requirements

OALSEMP consists of two sub-projects: Multi-fleet Constant Wear Immersion Suit System (MF-CWISS) and Multi-fleet Aircrew Survival Vest System (MF-ASVS).  Target fleets for MF-CWISS are all Rotary Wing fleets, while the targets for MF-ASVS are Rotary Wing Fleets plus the CC130, CC177 and Long Range Patrol fleets.

As the RCAF operates regularly over extremely cold maritime areas, the ability to safeguard aircrew in the event of water entry is critical.  The new immersion suit system must provide improved immersed survival time over the current system, be significantly more robust, less bulky and provide improved thermal management to reduce crew fatigue when not immersed.  The new survival vest system must provide integrated crew restraint, hoisting, flotation, body armour and load carriage capability, with reduced bulk and weight and improved thermal management as compared to in-service systems.  The survival vest system must be modular and re-configurable.  The two systems must compliment each other and be compatible with all aircrew stations and other ALSE.  The level of robustness and thermal management must be such that the system can be utilized for pre-, post- and in-flight activities without risk to its immersion protection capabilities or inducing undue fatigue.

Canadian Multi-Mission Aircraft

Replace Existing Systems

Objective

To equip the Canadian Armed Forces  with a long-range manned Command, Control, Communications and Computers (C4) and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft with extended capabilities to replace the CP-140 Aurora.

Requirements

To meet the continuing and evolving mandate for advanced ISR capabilities, the Canadian Armed Forces needs a manned, long-range platform, capable of providing C4 ISR with the ability to engage/control and to fully integrate with other ISR assets.  The Canadian Multi-Mission aircraft (CMA) project will provide the capability required to effectively support Canada’s strategic requirements for C4ISR at home as well as to support Canada’s interests abroad.  Canada’s large size necessitates an aircraft with long range and loiter times to ensure the platformcan transit operating areas and remain on station for sufficient time.

Preliminary Estimate

  • More than $1.5 billion
