Israeli company Elbit Systems announced that it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Rheinmetall Canada, for cooperation on proposing a solution for Canada’s Joint Fire Modernization (JFM) project. The JFM project intends to enable a near-real-time sharing of tactical, operational and strategic fires and effects information through a digital network allowing instantaneous sharing of the Common Operating Picture (COP) including targets, friendly locations and Command and Control information.

According to Elbit, with Rheinmetall Canada’s strong local presence and leadership of the Canadian Integrated Soldier System (ISS) project, and Elbit Systems UK leadership of the British Dismounted Joint Fires Integrators (D-JFI) program and involvement in Canada’s Airspace Coordination Centre Modernization (ASCCM) project, the two companies are well positioned to offer a superior solution for the JFM project. 

Haim Delmar, General Manager of Elbit Systems C4I and Cyber, said: “We are pleased to team up with Rheinmetall Canada on pursuing this opportunity. I believe that developing a joint fires solution for Canada that draws on the experience that both companies acquire in Canada and in the UK will enable us to offer a higher level of technological maturity, clear growth path and robust Five Eyes compatibility.”
