The federal government has awarded an $18.5 million contract to Saab Microwave Canada Ltd. to upgrade radars on the Halifax-class frigates.


More from the government news release:


The contract, for the overhaul of the weapon-control radars onboard the Royal Canadian Navy’s twelve Halifax-class frigates, is part of the Halifax-class Modernization/Frigate Life Extension project.


Each frigate is equipped with radars that give the crew critical visibility of their surroundings, and which are paired with a weapon-control system that allows aircraft, ship and missile threats to be engaged.


The fleet of Royal Canadian Navy frigates is undergoing the following series of modernizations: a new command and control system, a new radar capability, a new electronic warfare system, and upgraded communications technologies and missiles.
