This subcontract was awarded to DRS Technologies Canada Ltd. in support of a communications modernization contract from Lockheed Martin Canada in September 2014. DRS Technologies Canada Ltd. is the primary subcontractor to Lockheed Martin Canada.

The subcontract includes the provision of all internal tactical and secure voice switching systems and terminals. DRS will provide its Shipboard Integrated Communications System (SHINCOM 3100) central switching unit, helicopter audio distribution system, public address server, recorder storage units, console dual screen terminals, outdoor terminals, jackboxes and ancillaries, as well as the Avaya G450 PABX phone system.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for DRS to deliver the SHINCOM 3100 system to the Royal New Zealand Navy, which leverages the existing installed base with the Royal Canadian Navy, the Royal Australian Navy and the United States Navy”, says Steve Zuber, vice president and general manager, DRS Technologies Canada Ltd. “This program will allow these Navies to share key interoperability, technology and applications, ensuring that SHINCOM 3100 remains the premier internal communications system for years to come.”

SHINCOM 3100 is the latest generation in shipboard communications switch technology which provides reliable, red/black secure tactical communications for Navy operators. DRS Technologies will produce and deliver two shipsets, the first of which is expected to be delivered in early 2016.
