WORLD LEADER IN FIGHTER ISS AND LIFE EXTENSION SOLUTION

L3Harris has provided leading integrated In-Service Support (ISS) for fighter aircraft for more than 35 years, including significant legacy F/A-18 work, making us Canada’s Fighter Center of Excellence. The work is performed primarily at the Mirabel, Quebec facility, as well as at the customer’s operating bases in Cold Lake, Alberta and Bagotville, Quebec and the customer’s Weapon System Management offices in Gatineau, Quebec. L3Harris has also successfully exported this expertise in support of many different international operators, such as the U.S. Navy, NASA, the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), the Swiss Air Force, the Finnish Air Force and the Spanish Air Force.

CC-150 POLARIS

CC-150 POLARIS - A MISSION WE MEET WITH GREAT PRIDE!

L3Harris provides all ISS services for this strategic fleet from ‘cradle to grave.’ This support includes the overall program management, material management and engineering support services, as well as line maintenance support at CFB Trenton, Ontario and on deployment, and heavy maintenance and component maintenance, repair and overhaul services in Mirabel, Quebec.  The CC-150 Polaris fleet is used by the government for high-profile missions such as VVIP transportation and strategic air-to-air refueling, as well as passengers, freight and medical evacuation transportation.

CC-330 ISS – INTERIM SUPPORT FOR CANADA’S STRATEGIC TANKER TRANSPORT CAPABILITY (STTC) PROJECT

Leveraging its established ISS experience on the CC-150 Polaris fleet, L3Harris is providing Interim In-Service Support (ISS) services with similar scope for Canada’s newest strategic fleet, the Airbus CC-330, chosen by Canada to replace the CC-150 fleet under the STTC project.

The L3Harris support includes the overall program management, material management, engineering support services, heavy maintenance and component maintenance, repair and overhaul (MR&O) services in Mirabel, Quebec.  It also includes the set-up and execution of the line maintenance support at the Ottawa airport, and all deployment support as well. The first two aircraft of the CC-330 fleet will be used by the government in passenger configuration for high-profile missions such as VVIP and military personnel transportation until they are retrofitted into the Multi-Role Tanker and Transport (MRTT) configuration as part of the STTC program. The subsequent long-term contract could involve ISS for as many as nine CC-330 MRTT aircraft for more than 20 years.

Evolving Remote Pilot Imaging Capabilities

From Humble Beginnings To A Capable Future - At the end of his life in 1896, Alfred Nobel, engineer, inventor and benefactor of the Nobel Prize, had a compelling idea for “An Improved Mode of Obtaining Photographic Maps and Earth or Ground Measurements” using a photographic camera carried by a “…balloon, rocket or missile.” Nobel unfortunately never lived to see a practical application of his idea, but his plans laid the groundwork on which other inventors made tremendous progress.
