The delivery to DRDC
was facilitated by a $1 million contract award under the Canadian government's Build in Canada Innovation Program.
We offered our towed low-frequency active (LFA) sonar, which has its roots in the advanced developments from DRDC
(the Defence Research and Development Canada), and will be manufactured in our Dartmouth facility as it was for the Royal Dutch Netherlands Navy.
This official prequalification sets the stage for the government to buy up to $1 million worth of Lumiant TitanMade armour tiles for testing by DRDC
. TitanMade is a patent-pending titanium ceramic composite material that is ideally suited for ballistic armour applications where weight and thickness are of critical importance.
CSS has collaborated with Public Safety Canada and Natural Resources Canada to set up and assist in operating the National Energy Infrastructure Test Centre in Ottawa, where several times a year industry representatives are invited to take part in courses that walk them through the details of how their systems might be vulnerable to attacks, including colourful simulations of what such attacks look like and what might be done to prevent them.
Also, Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC
) spend around CAD300 million on Research and Development programs.
