Thales secures key role for the Canadian Army’s Land Command Support System

  • Thales will be a major subcontractor to General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada (GDMS-C) in supporting the Army’s Land Command Support System (LCSS).
  • The LCSS comprises four core programs that will deliver new capability to the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and enable mission success.

Thales Canada is pleased to announce that it has been awarded sub-contracts by GDMS-C for the Department of National Defence (DND) and Canadian Armed Forces’ Land Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) system.

The sub-contracts will enable the long-term sustainment of the Canadian Army’s LCSS, which includes four programs: Core Networks; System of Systems Engineering and Integration; Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance; and, Applications.

Together, these contracts provide essential services to enable the delivery of new capability and ensure the long-term evolution of the highly integrated command and control communications system, which is critical to the Army’s operations and mission success at home and abroad.

In delivering this work, Thales will further develop its long-standing commitment to driving innovation in key Canadian industrial capabilities through collaboration with Indigenous businesses, start-ups, academia, innovation superclusters and small and medium-sized businesses, as well as through its unique Canadian innovation infrastructure like AI@Centech, SYNERGY, and its new National Digital Excellence Centre.

“We are motivated to leverage Thales’ unique strengths and expertise in C4ISR to further enable the Army’s digital transformation. Collaborating to better serve those who serve is core to our purpose at Thales in Canada, and we look forward to being part of a team that will innovate, and deliver trusted capability and superior performance to the Canadian Armed Forces.” Ian Krepps, Vice-President, Business Development & Growth, Thales Canada.
