The AOPS program is worth over $2b dollars, delivering six ice breaking patrol vessels to the Canadian Navy, as part of the Federal Government’s National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS).

The AOPS is one of the initial programs forming part of the $40b Federal Government’s NSPS. WMG’s goal is to form a Centre of Excellence to supply programs to meet the needs of the NSPS.
