The best value for Canadians
Team Artemis can offer an unmatched value proposition to Canada with the potential for aircraft assembly, mission integration and in-service support. The team will count on local industries to provide many components of the system such as the Canadian-made Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6 turbo-prop engine and the unique anti-jam GPS system provided by NovAtel of Calgary, Alberta.
If selected for RPAS, the Artemis UAS will be assembled by L3 MAS in Mirabel, Quebec. Once the assembly is complete, L3 MAS will install a mission suite selected by the Canadian government to meet the specific requirements of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). That mission suite will include a large sensor suite made up of such systems as an L3 WESCAM advanced Electro-Optic / Infrared (EO/IR) laser imaging and targeting sensor system.
Assembly and mission suite integration will be verified through a series of flight tests performed in Canada before Artemis would be released to the CAF. After delivery, In-Service Support (ISS) activities will be conducted in Canada, including the maintenance and the supply chain management of the aircraft and avionics components. Team Artemis will eventually comprise a number of Canadian partners, including small and medium businesses, woman-owned and indigenous-owned businesses, and Canadian universities.
