BOMBARDIER DEFENSE AND GENERAL DYNAMICS MISSION SYSTEMS–CANADA COLLABORATE TO DELIVER CANADA’S MULTI-MISSION AIRCRAFT
The companies are collaborating to deliver the next-generation Multi-Mission and ASW aircraft that will meet the requirements for the CMMA program.
Canada’s largest business jet manufacturer and one of Canada’s largest defence contractors join forces to collaborate as Canada’s Multi-Mission Aircraft Team to deliver leading-edge airborne capability combining Bombardier’s renowned Global 6500 aircraft, with General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada’s fully interoperable mission system technology and sensors for the ultimate no-compromise platform of the future.
Both companies are leveraging their extensive networks to prepare for success in a competitive, open, and transparent procurement process, and are joining forces as Canada’s Multi-Mission Aircraft Team.
The foundation for the Canadian Multi-Mission Aircraft Team’s solution is the highly efficient and agile Global 6500 aircraft, the right-sized jet for the CMMA with next-generation engines, long range, high endurance, and coupled with proven reliability and better fuel efficiency as documented in the jet’s recently published Environmental Product Declaration. The Global family of aircraft is the platform of choice for over 10 different mission types across the globe, given its ability to deploy in all weather conditions with full mission payload, its ultimate combination of speed, range and endurance, and its 24/7 worldwide support infrastructure.
The aircraft will host General Dynamics’ best-in-class integrated mission systems, drawing directly from Canada’s investment in the newly modernized CP140 Block IV and CH-148 Cyclone. This operationally-proven Canadian design forms the basis for the iterative and low-risk integration of modernized sensors and systems enabling Canada to leap even further ahead of peers and adversaries alike. This future-proof foundation will also ensure continued operational relevance, responding to Canada’s emergent needs through the middle of this century.
