Canada will upgrade eight permanent surveillance systems
OTTAWA, (BM) – The Canadian government has decided to repair and upgrade its permanent surveillance systems, BulgarianMilitary.com has learned. According to the spread information, the project’s executor will be the Canadian branch of the company Rheinmetall. According to media reports, this contract is renewing every year.

The Canadian Army’s continuous surveillance systems are made of sensitive sensors that allow the military to monitor what is happening by air, water, and land. These systems, known as MSS, operate in the full C4ISR domain range, i. – command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and intelligence.
This contract is not the first one awarded to Rheinmetall Canada. As early as 2009, the North American country’s government awarded the company a similar agreement, and most recently, Rheinmetall Canada completed work on the same contract for five years – 2015 – 2021.
Pietro Mazzei, vice president of Rheinmetall Canada, says the deal is proof of two things – Canada’s desire to update and maintain its continuous monitoring systems and Rheinmetall Canada the rising quality of the company services.
Canada has also upgraded ground command systems
Last year in mid-March, the Canadian government decided to upgrade its Satellite-on-the-Move (SOTM) communication systems, which are part of life for ground command support systems. The contractor of the project was Elbit Systems from Israel.
According to the agreement signed last year, Elbit Systems must deliver its triple-band ELSAT 2100 SATCOM tape systems to the Canadian Armed Forces, which enable a reliable real-time broadband communications solution.
Using military and commercial satellites, including the US Department of Defense’s broadband global network SATCOM (WGS), ELSAT 2100 SATCOM systems in motion will allow the Canadian Armed Forces to communicate over voice and long-distance data between mobile command vehicles, elements for communication, high-priority sensor vehicles, as well as tactical headquarters or command posts, providing them with high-capacity network services and command capabilities on the go.
