CCC developed opportunities to serve the Canadian and international defence markets through deals that consolidate the requirements of like-minded countries which alone cannot generate orders of sufficient size to be affordable. Canada and the Netherlands needed to outfit their naval frigates with SIRIUS infrared defence systems. The most cost-effective for both governments was to consolidate their orders through a single contract. We negotiated the contract, calling on our partner, Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC), to act as the purchasing agent. The project was valued at $180,000,000.
