Construction de brise-glaces à la Davie « Le début de quelque chose de grandiose »

L’inclusion du chantier maritime Davie dans la Stratégie nationale de construction navale (SNCN) fait rêver à Lévis. Avec environ 8,5 milliards de dollars en contrats fédéraux à portée de main, on voit la construction navale devenir un secteur de pointe comme l’aéronautique à Montréal. Mais les fournisseurs de Davie ont du pain sur la planche pour ne pas rater le bateau.

    L'équipe Team Artemis ajoute des entreprises canadiennes pour le programme de systèmes d'aéronefs télépilotés (SATP) de l'Aviation royale canadienne (ARC).

    Faits saillants : • Quatre entreprises canadiennes de l'aérospatiale se joignent à l'équipe • Ces entreprises offrent leur expertise en ingénierie, en logistique, en formation et simulation, ainsi qu'en gestion de mission • La base de fournisseurs de l'équipe emploie plus de 18 000 Canadiens. MIRABEL, Québec, le 22 avril 2021 – Quatre entreprises canadiennes se sont jointes à l'équipe Team Artemis, renforçant ainsi son expertise et ses capacités pour soutenir le programme de systèmes d'aéronefs télépilotés (SATP) de l'Aviation royale canadienne (ARC). Airbus Defence and Space Canada, située en Ontario, se joint aux entreprises albertaines ATCO Frontec, Canadian UAVs et Lockheed Martin CDL Systems en tant que membres de l'équipe Team Artemis, dirigée par L3Harris Technologies, une entreprise novatrice du secteur des technologies, et Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), un chef de file mondial dans le développement de systèmes d'aéronef sans pilote (UAS). Ces nouveaux membres apportent leur expertise en ingénierie aéronautique, en logistique du déploiement, en formation et simulation et en gestion de mission. Ils se veulent un complément aux membres de l'équipe qui fournissent des composants canadiens essentiels : la tourelle électro-optique/infrarouge (EO/IR) de la série WESCAM MX de L3Harris et le moteur PT6A de Pratt & Whitney Canada, au Québec. L3Harris, dont les opérations canadiennes se déroulent dans 14 sites et 6 provinces, est l'entrepreneur principal et assurera l'intégration du C4ISR pour la plateforme, ainsi que l'ensemble des activités de soutien en service pour la durée prévue du contrat, soit de plus de 25 ans. La base de fournisseurs de l'équipe Team Artemis emploie plus de 18 000 Canadiens, génère des revenus de 11 milliards de dollars et pratique ses activités d'un océan à l'autre. « L'ajout de ces entreprises bien établies, à la fois novatrices et hautement qualifiées, consolide davantage notre position pour offrir à l'ARC la meilleure solution pour répondre à ses besoins en matière de SATP », a déclaré Ugo Paniconi, directeur général de L3Harris, à Mirabel. « Notre équipe offrira une solution éprouvée et rentable, qui comprendra un contenu industriel canadien à la fois important et durable, ce qui se traduit par du travail et des emplois importants à travers le pays. » L'équipe Team Artemis propose l'UAS Artemis, basé sur l'UAS Heron TP de IAI, mais conçu de façon unique afin de respecter les spécifications canadiennes. Le Heron TP est en service depuis plus de 10 ans au sein de la Force aérienne israélienne et a été sélectionné par les Forces armées allemandes. Il s'agit du seul système éprouvé au combat qui satisfait aux exigences opérationnelles rigoureuses de l'ARC. Le gouvernement du Canada prévoit acquérir un système SATP pour mieux répondre à ses besoins en matière de défense. Le SATP sera intégré à un réseau de systèmes de renseignement, surveillance et reconnaissance afin de permettre une circulation d'information en temps quasi réel, laquelle est essentielle aux opérations de l'ARC. L3Harris a été choisie comme soumissionnaire qualifié à la fin de mai 2019. La demande de propositions devrait être publiée plus tard cette année, le contrat sera attribué en 2022 ou 2023 et la livraison du premier système est prévue en 2024 ou 2025. L3Harris est l'une des entreprises en défense et en sécurité des plus importantes et des plus diversifiées au Canada et emploie plus de 2 300 Canadiens.

    PAL Aerospace wins government aerial surveillance contract

    PAL Aerospace is pleased to be awarded a contract to provide aerial surveillance for Canada's inland, coastal and offshore waters on behalf of the Government of Canada. The expanded contract, delivered on behalf of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, covers an initial five-year period and includes opportunities for PAL Aerospace to earn contract extensions that increase the life of the agreement to 10 years. PAL Aerospace has been providing this critical service under contract to the government since 1990. “This contract award confirms the Government of Canada's confidence in our company's ability to execute the most advanced maritime surveillance program of its type in the world,” said PAL CEO Brian Chafe. “The program is an excellent example of the successful public-private partnership that continues to drive innovation and support employment in Canada.” Fisheries and Oceans Canada is responsible for the monitoring, control, and surveillance of Canada's fisheries waters, as well as certain international areas, such as the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization Regulatory Area, and the North Pacific. “PAL Aerospace's work on behalf of the Government of Canada will ensure highly skilled employment and important economic benefits from coast to coast,” said Jake Trainor, chief operating officer of PAL Aerospace. “From St. John's to Campbell River, our operations and employees look forward to delivering this important work for Canadians.” PAL Aerospace's critical role in the delivery of Canada's aerial surveillance program provides the Government of Canada with the capability to monitor domestic and foreign vessel activities and detect potential violations. The program also contributes significantly to pollution surveillance, environmental monitoring, and marine security for a number of other federal departments and agencies. “This contract is a significant investment in the Newfoundland and Labrador economy that will support our bright future in the community,” said Derek Scott, vice-president of Program Development for PAL Aerospace. “Ensuring we meet Fisheries and Oceans Canada's service expectations for this contract will push us to improve and expand our already significant core capabilities. In doing so, PAL Aerospace will be better positioned to continue developing and delivering value added Canadian technology and innovative practices to domestic and export markets.” Under the new contract, PAL Aerospace will provide Fisheries and Oceans Canada with service through a combination of Beechcraft King Air B200 medium-range aircraft and Dash 8-100 series long-range aircraft, all associated ground support and other related services. The aircraft will operate from bases in St. John's, N.L.; Halifax, N.S.; and Campbell River, B.C. https://www.skiesmag.com/press-releases/pal-aerospace-wins-government-aerial-surveillance-contract

  • No timeline set for development of promised defence procurement agency

    No timeline set for development of promised defence procurement agency

    By Charlie Pinkerton; iPolitics Published on Jan 2, 2020 3:02pm Although Canada's defence minister has been tasked with working toward creating a new defence procurement agency to improve the country's often slow-moving system for purchasing military equipment, there's no clear timeline for when the new body will be put in place. In the mandate letter addressed to him by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and published last month, Harjit Sajjan was told that part of his job in this Parliament will be to “bring forward analyses and options for the creation of Defence Procurement Canada,” which the Liberals promised to advance toward in this mandate while they campaigned in the fall's election. “A lot of work has already started on (Defence Procurement Canada) and the goal of this is to make sure that we get the procurement projects done as quickly as possible to make sure the Canadian Armed Forces has what they need,” Sajjan told iPolitics the day before his mandate letter was released. Sajjan also said the Department of National Defence (DND), Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada and Public Services and Procurement Canada still need to complete “more work” before a timeline for the creation of the new procurement agency would be set. Some of the first steps of the Trudeau government to improve Canada's military procurement system was in transferring the responsibility of military procurements to being managed internally at DND. When the Liberals published its overhauled defence policy in June 2017, DND said that 70 per cent of procured projects were being delivered past their deadlines. “Cumbersome decision making and approval processes have introduced undue delays. Accountability among departments has been diffuse and at times unclear,” says the Liberals' defence policy (it's titled Strong, Secure, Engaged). As a response, the defence policy declared that DND would internally manage the contracts of all projects of under $5 million — an initiative which it said would reduce departmental approval times by 50 per cent for 80 per cent of all contracts. The defence policy is intended to lead how Canada's military operates beyond this decade. At the same time as developing the new agency for military procurement projects, Sajjan has also been tasked with choosing which company the government will choose to pay almost $20 billion to build Canada's next generation fleet of fighter jets. According to the current timeline laid out by the Canadian Armed Forces, the government will receive the final bid proposals from the three companies it deemed in 2018 as being capable of meeting Canada's needs (which includes Saab, Lockheed Martin and Boeing) early in 2020. If it sticks to its timeline, the government will pick which company will be its fighter jet provider by next year and will receive the first next generation jet as early as 2025. Sajjan's mandate letter includes another procurement-related list item; he's also tasked with advancing the renewal of Canada's naval fleet. There are four major navy procurement projects that are nearing their conclusion. Canada is buying new surface combatants, new Arctic and offshore patrol ships, new joint patrol ships and retrofitting its 12 frigates. The combined cost of these projects is expected to cost taxpayers more than $83 billion. Investments in procured projects account for a large portion of the $32 billion jump in annual defence spending that Canada is planning for by 2027. If achieved in that year, Canada's defence spending as it relates to a portion of the country's gross domestic product (GDP) would equal about 1.4 per cent. Canada currently spends just over 1.3 per cent of its GDP on its military two years ago. It has pledged to NATO to work toward spending two per cent of its GDP on its military, which is a common goal amongst allied countries. Over the past few years, U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly called on Canada to increase its military spending to surpass two per cent of GDP. Global News reported less than a month ago that Canada had multibillion-dollar discrepancies in the last two years in how much it planned to spend on its military and how much it actually spent. According to documents obtained by the publication, it had a discrepancy of $2.29 billion in military spending in 2017-2018 and a shortfall of $4.45 billion in spending last year, compared to what it outlined in its defence policy.
