Canada's Combat Ship Team: BAE Systems, CAE, Lockheed Martin Canada, L3 Technologies, MDA and Ultra Electronics Join Forces to Deliver Canadian Surface Combatant Proposal

Two days prior to the procurement closure date, Lockheed Martin Canada (NYSE: LMT) has confirmed delivery of the proposal for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) program signifying that the acquisition has moved to the next critical phase.

BAE Systems, CAE, Lockheed Martin Canada, L3 Technologies, MDA and Ultra Electronics are partnering as Canada's Combat Ship Team for the Royal Canadian Navy's future fleet of surface combatants. Canada's Combat Ship Team is offering the most advanced and modern warship design, the Type 26 Global Combat Ship (GCS), with high-tech platform innovations from prominent Canadian companies. The solution includes the internationally renowned Canadian-developed combat management system, CMS 330.

Canada's Combat Ship Team's approach to the CSC project exclusively parallels the Canadian Government's Defence Policy, which is the foundation for the offering: Strong, Secure and Engaged.

STRONG. Canada's Combat Ship Team's approach to the strategic objective STRONG is to provide the right ship for the Royal Canadian Navy that surpasses baseline requirements with minimal change. This solution represents the lowest development risk and is underpinned by Canadian doctrine; interoperability with five-eyes nations and other NATO allies; ability to achieve safety certification and security accreditation; ease of operation, maintenance and sustainment; and ease of upgradeability to address future capabilities. 

SECURE. Under the pillar of SECURE, Canada's Combat Ship Team's offering focuses on ensuring successful program execution by bringing together a pan-Canadian team who have proven, demonstrated and current pedigree in performing complex defence contracts in Canada; who have well-established infrastructure, employees, security clearances and facilities in place today; who have demonstrated their commitment and reliability to successfully execute the project by their substantial investments in CSC and in meeting all procurement deadlines; and therefore who are poised to perform the CSC program, Ready on Day One.

ENGAGED. Embodied throughout Canada's Combat Ship Team's offering is our multifaceted approach to achieving the strategic pillar ENGAGED. The underlying principles implemented focus on partnership with all stakeholders and, equally important, maintaining sovereignty of the CSC solution in Canada, which can only be achieved by having the solution and capability developed "at home" by Canadians.

Canada's Combat Ship Team is living proof that capability investments made in Canada result in sustained jobs not only through long term sustainment of its system and products, but also extend to exports which leverage Canada's investments to other nations adding more jobs to Canadian industry. This team recognizes the significant benefits that Canada will receive with the implementation of Canada's Combat Ship Team's strategic objective to bring the jobs "home" to Canada and therefore collectively become the Home Team.

Quotes

"The Type 26 Global Combat Ship is a flexible, next generation warship design which offers a low risk and affordable solution for the Canadian Surface Combatant program. With the UK Type 26 program running ahead of CSC, our Canadian ship will benefit from lessons learnt on the UK program. This schedule also allows Type 26 the opportunity to be the most advanced Canadian Surface Combatant.

Canadian companies such as W.R. Davis Engineering in Ottawa, Rolls-Royce in Peterborough and L3 MAPPS in Montréal have already begun work on delivering high-technology systems for the UK's Type 26, demonstrating the skills and capability available from the Canadian supply chain." Anne Healey, Country Director, Canada, BAE Systems

"Building on our proud Canadian history of more than 70 years, we are honoured to join forces with this pan-Canadian team that has been assembled for CSC. CAE welcomes the opportunity to leverage the strengths of our combined organizations to support the Government of Canada and Irving Shipbuilding to deliver a modern, capable warship with an integrated training system that aligns with the Future Naval Training Strategy. CAE is dedicated to offering customers the most innovative training solutions to achieve the highest levels of operational readiness and performance." Joe Armstrong, Vice President and General Manager - Canada, CAE

"The Defence Policy released earlier this year announced the Government's new vision for the Canadian Armed Forces, and as a Pan-Canadian team, our approach to CSC implements these Defence Policy pillars where we are offering the right ship for the Navy to enable them to be STRONG; we are offering proven, Canadian pedigree of companies to ensure successful program execution is SECURE; and we are offering a solution that ensures sovereignty is maintained by bringing the direct jobs on CSC home to Canada so that we are ENGAGED and able to sustain the CSC ships throughout their lifespan.

Lockheed Martin Canada has been Canada's trusted Combat System Integrator for more than three decades, and our team can be counted on to deliver affordable solutions, sustained job creation, and technology development in Canada for export potential. We'll employ our proven collaborative partnership model to successfully manage the highly complex systems integration process – including integrating our CMS 330 Combat Management System with the Type 26 Global Combat Ship – and leverage the innovation and talent here at home which will ultimately result in unprecedented economic outcome for Canada." Rosemary Chapdelaine, Vice President and General Manager, Lockheed Martin Canada Rotary and Mission Systems

"We are proud to be a member of Canada's Combat Ship Team. With a strong Canadian footprint, we are in a unique position to leverage our established Canadian companies to deliver Canadian marine technologies, systems integration support, and through life in service support to the team in a number of areas including integrated communications, electro optic and infrared sensors, torpedo handling systems, and integrated platform management systems." Mike Greenley, President, L3 WESCAM

"As one of Canada's leading space and defence companies, MDA's participation in this team is very strategic. For MDA, in addition to providing world-class operational CSC capability to the Canadian Forces, this project will be a major enabler in achieving significant future MDA exports from Canada and the resulting growth in jobs and business in Canada – a continuous corporate strategy for MDA since 1969." Dave Hargreaves, Vice President – Aerospace and Defence, Surveillance and Intelligence, MDA

"As a long-time participant in Canada's defence community, Ultra Electronics is delighted to be a member of Canada's Combat Ship Team. It is truly a privilege to be able to provide our world-leading Canadian designed and developed underwater warfare products to this uniquely assembled team to deliver Canada's future surface combatant." Ken Walker, President, Ultra Electronics Canada

Intelligo Group: Powerhouses of the US and Israeli Intelligence Communities Join Forces to Advance AI-powered Background Checks and Due Diligence Technology

Intelligo Group, a pioneer in automated background checks and due diligence technology, announced today that Michael McConnell, the former Director of the National Security Agency (NSA), and Pinhas Buchris, the former director of Israel's 8200 intelligence division, and former Managing Director of the Israeli Ministry of Defense, have joined its advisory board.

McConnell served 29 years in the Navy, most of that time as a career Intelligence Officer, and retired as a Vice Admiral. He was the Director of the NSA from 1992 to 1996 and served as the US Director of National Intelligence under the Bush administration. McConnell has also served as a member of the Director of Central Intelligence senior leadership team.

McConnell will advise Intelligo on matters concerning the US government, particularly the Office of Personnel Management and Department of Homeland Security. The US government has a security clearance backlog of more than 700,000 applicants, and is paying billions of dollars on these employees who are on payrolls, but have yet to be cleared.

"Intelligo is changing the status quo that exists in the way background checks are currently conducted by automating the process so that it is both faster and significantly more thorough than the manual method that has been used until now," said McConnell. "Background checks have traditionally been a tedious and costly process. Governments and companies have a lot to gain both in terms of security and cost savings by automating this process. Intelligo is the gold standard in this industry and I'm confident we will see rapid adoption of this technology in the market."  

Buchris served 27 years in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and retired as a Brigadier General. He is currently General Partner at State of Mind Ventures. During Buchris's army career, he founded the IDF's cyber initiative, led the army's largest technology information gathering unit and served as the Head of the 8200 division, Israel's signal processing intelligence unit. He also served as the Managing Director of the Israel Ministry of Defense from 2007-2010.

"What I have learned in all of my years of experience both in the military and in the private sector, comes down to one thing - people. Selecting the right people at the right time is critical," said Buchris. "When making investment decisions, companies must really know the people they are partnering with regardless of if it's a merger or a collaboration. Intelligo provides this information, allowing for total transparency throughout the due diligence process."

Through the use of AI and machine learning, Intelligo simplifies the entire background check and due diligence process by eliminating protracted turnover times and tedious manual compilation of reports that the US government and other industries have used for decades.

"We are honored to have Michael and Pinhas join Intelligo as Advisors, and look forward to leveraging their vast knowledge and experience," said Shlomo Mirvis, the CEO and Co-Founder of Intelligo Group. "Having two of the world's most veteran intelligence experts on our team will only strengthen our offering, continuing to insure that we provide our clients with the most accurate and effective findings, allowing them to protect their investments, in a fraction of the time it takes for manual checks."

About Intelligo
Intelligo is the first company to offer a SaaS based model for organizations to conduct automated due diligence and background checks. Users are able to access their searches and continuously monitor research subjects on a daily basis. Powered by AI and machine learning algorithms, the platform scours thousands of web sources, including premium data providers, social media, corporate records and news media. Intelligo Clarity's sophisticated engine then extracts relevant events and produces a decision-ready report that is easy to read, informed and actionable.
