Further to the Government of Canada’s recent Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship and Joint Support Ship In Service Support Contract award to Thales, the Atlantic Canada Aerospace and Defence Association (ACADA) in partnership with Thales Canada will host an AJISS Supplier Engagement Day & Briefing on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 in conjunction with DEFSEC Atlantic in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

As Canada’s partner of choice for AJISS, Thales is committed to working with the Government of Canada and empowering Canadian industry to support this program for decades to come. Thales’ ISS program solution will create jobs across Canada and will ensure that the ships are mission-ready, where and when they are needed, from coast to coast to coast.

For this event, Thales Canada will be seeking supplier capabilities in support of AJISS and will also be investigating indirect engagement opportunities.  In addition, there will be an opportunity to request a one-on-one meeting with Thales representatives.
