50 Years of Support
Building on our experience managing in-service support for every major Royal Canadian Navy platform for the past 50 years, Thales is Canada’s partner of choice for AJISS: the In-Service Support program for Canada’s new fleets of Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS) and Joint Support Ships (JSS).
Thales is committed to powering industry to support Canada for decades to come. The AJISS program is creating thousands of jobs, driving Canadian innovation and digital transformation, building a new Canadian supply chain, and helping to ensure that the Royal Canadian Navy is mission-ready, on-time – every time…from coast to coast to coast.
Having built a global reputation for innovative In-Service Support capabilities, we’re leveraging our award-winning experience in project management, systems engineering, and integrated logistics to help ensure that the Canadian Armed Forces is mission-ready whenever and wherever they are needed.
For the AJISS program, digital technologies like artificial intelligence, big data analytics and cybersecurity are playing a huge role in the Thales approach to In-Service Support. Generating economic benefits of more than $250 million of R&D in Canada, we’re leveraging our Digital Factory, Thales Digital Solutions, in Montreal, one of two Thales Group AI-focused research centres worldwide, to create an innovation-first approach to how In-Service Support is delivered and how fleets can be managed in Canada and around the world.
We are building collaborative environments that provide real-time access to information, not just data and we’ll be working with both industry and academia to continue to spark innovation and skills development in areas such as predictive maintenance, life-cycle management, and logistics support analysis.
