The Canadian government has awarded Rheinmetall Canada a sustainment contract for the Persistent Surveillance System (PSS). This runs for one year, with the potential for additional annual extensions. In its capacity as prime contractor, Rheinmetall Canada Inc will provide repair and overhaul services for the eight PSS units currently used by the Canadian Armed Forces.
The PSS consists of aerostat and tower-based sensors that are connected to a ground station. They enable real-time sensor exploitation for land Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance. Following initial procurement of the PSS by the Canadian government in 2009, Rheinmetall completed a first in-service support contract from 2015 to 2021.
