The new CSC will be an advanced and multi-mission combat ship, equipped with next-generation technology, which will support and protect the Royal Canadian Navy for the next 40 years.

The system was chosen by Lockheed Martin Canada for its weapon-agnostic capability, as well as JSK’s commitment to developing Canadian TLS expertise. The TLS will be built and maintained in Canada, with JSK employing and training additional Canadian engineering professionals to enhance its production and integration capability. This will include a new purpose-built test facility in JSK’s Pointe Claire site in Montreal, Quebec that will be used throughout production to allow for testing and evaluation of completed systems and software and follow on support/training phases of the program.
JSK has developed a fully integrated supply chain to ensure full lifecycle support capability throughout the entire program and systems life.

Supplied to Lockheed Martin Canada, the systems will be installed on 15 warships built at Irving Shipbuilding in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The fully qualified TLS will provide a close range, rapid-reaction weapon agnostic launch capability for a variety of NATO standard light weight torpedoes. With a modern TLS electronics suite, the system can calculate target position based on sonar and ship data alongside control from the combat management system.

An established provider of engineering services and in-service support for the Royal Canadian Navy, JSK Naval Support is headquartered in Pointe-Claire, Quebec and is a member of the COVE community in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
