For the second time in five days, General Dynamics Canada has secured a multimillion-dollar contract, this time with the Peruvian Navy.
The company announced late Monday it has signed up to upgrade four helicopters with an integrated mission system to enhance the operational capability of Peru’s navy.
The Canadian government’s international government-to-government contracting organization, the Canadian Commercial Corporation, helped secure the contract.
General Dynamics vice-president Brian Fava said there are many similarities between Peruvian and Canadian military requirements.
“By leveraging this Canadian solution, the Peruvian Navy will gain real-time access to accurate and useful situational awareness intelligence provided by our integrated sensor suite, allowing operators to conduct complex surface and sub-surface maritime, blue water and littoral surveillance and search and rescue operations,” he said in a statement. “We are proud to be part of this program.”
On Friday, the Canadian government announced it is going with General Dynamics to upgrade military radios.
