Lockheed Martin Canada, a major supplier of systems, software and professional services to the Royal Canadian Navy, will be in Saint John, Halifax and St. John’s this week to meet with companies that could become partners and suppliers on shipbuilding projects, including the Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships and other future programs. 
In each location, Lockheed Martin officials will provide a briefing on how companies can prepare and position themselves for shipbuilding work through major contractors and then will conduct a series of one-on-one meetings to learn about the capabilities of many New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador based companies.


New Brunswick companies include Accreon, Belledune Port Authority, CARIS, Cirrus9, CLS Lexi-Tech, DEW Engineering, Fleetway Facilty Services, GreenNexxus, iBridge, Industrial Rubber, ING Robotics, Innovatia, Mariner Partners, NB Naval Center, Port of Dalhousie, Salient Training Solutions, University of New Brunswick, Valcom Consulting Group and others.


Nova Scotia companies include Accu Translation, Akoostix, Amirix/Vemco, Armament Technology, Aspin Kemp and Associates, Atlantis Systems EduPlus, Bluedrop Performance Learning, Canadian Maritime Engineering, CarteNav, Dalhousie University, EMO Marine Technologies, Geospectrum, Hawboldt Industries, HMRI, IMP, Jasco Research, Joubeh, Marand Engineering / Portsmouth Atlantic, Metocean Data Systems, Moog Components Group, Ocean Sonic, Pro-Oceanus, Rolls-Royce, Ultra Electronics Maritime Systems, Xeos and others.
 

Newfoundland and Labrador companies include Allswater, Avalon Controls, C&W Offshore, Camouflage Software, Compusult, Delta Radar, DF Barnes, e-Sonar, Genoa Design International, Grey Island Energy, GRI Simulations, ICAN / CNS Systems, ID Blue, Kraken Sonar Systems, Marine Institute, Memorial University of Newfoundland, NavSim Technologies, Northern Radar, Notus Electronics, Oceanic / Fleetway, Pangeo Subsea, Pennecon Energy, Provincial Aerospace, Rutter, Solace Power, Verafin, Virtual Marine Technology and others.
Lockheed Martin Canada is currently executing on the $2.1 billion Halifax Class Modernization program, which is a mid-life refit of Canada’s 12 multi-role patrol frigates to ensure that they continue to operate effectively as the backbone of the Royal Canadian Navy’s fleet. The project includes a new command and control system, a new radar capability, a new electronic warfare system and upgraded communications and missiles.


As a result of winning the Halifax Class Modernization program, Lockheed Martin Canada has added more than 300 new jobs in Canada, including more than 150 in Atlantic Canada. In 2009, the company opened a new facility in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, which is now home to more than 250 employees and includes a state-of-the-art naval training centre. Many of the jobs that have been created are in engineering and computer science, and as much as possible Lockheed Martin has looked to fill these positions with local talent allowing new graduates as well as experienced professionals to remain in Atlantic Canada.
