The move comes after the Government of Canada placed a request to purchase four Shipsets of the ACS along with other related equipment to bolster its military capabilities.

The proposed sale will also include one AEGIS Combat System Computer Program, four Shipsets of AN/SPY-7 Solid State Radar Components, four Shipsets of Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC), and three Shipsets of the MK 41 Vertical Launch System.

Additionally, the package can include Mode 5/S capable Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) equipment, early ACS development activities for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) project, related software, documentation, training devices, and technical support.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has already notified the US Congress about this possible sale.

Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems will be the primary contractor for the deal. Several other companies are also expected to be associated with the execution of the contract.

The delivery of ACS will help increase Canadian maritime forces’ interoperability with the US and other Nato allies.

DSCA said in a statement: “This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security objectives of the US by helping to improve the military capability of Canada, a Nato ally that is an important force for ensuring political stability and economic progress, and a contributor to military, peacekeeping and humanitarian operations around the world.”

The statement added that the proposed sale will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

In March, the US approved a potential FMS of P-8A aircraft and associated equipment to Germany.
