BAE Systems and DEW Engineering Team for Key Canadian Program

Category: Defence Industry

OTTAWA, Canada -- BAE Systems and DEW Engineering & Development of Ottawa have signed a teaming agreement to collaborate for the Close Combat Vehicle (CCV) program, which is one of Canada's highest priority programs.

DEW has been chosen to carry out final assembly of the turret, as well as integration and test for the CV90 if the vehicle is chosen for the CCV program. This arrangement will be similar to the proven approach already demonstrated with all five existing CV90 export customers - Norway, Finland, Switzerland, Holland and Denmark.

"We are proud to partner with DEW," said David Allott, Managing Director BAE Systems Global Combat Systems. "DEW has an excellent reputation for its engineering skills, which is why we selected DEW as our partner to provide sustainable, combat proven vehicles to meet the needs of the Canadian Army. This ideal alliance combines our vehicle pedigree with DEW's detailed knowledge and experience of Canadian requirements."

DEW Engineering and Development is the preeminent firm in Canada for land combat vehicle refit and refurbishment and add-on armour protection systems. DEW has completed several projects for the Canadian Army, including extensive repair and refit work on the Army's light armoured vehicle fleet, major upgrade tasks on the Army's Leopard tanks and more recently, a multi-year life extension program for the Army's M113 family of vehicles, improving its mobility, firepower and protection to make it one of the safest vehicles in its class.

"DEW and BAE Systems are a winning pair for the CCV program," said Tim Dear, president, DEW Engineering and Development. "BAE Systems' proven CV90 is an impressive vehicle that will outshine the competition. With DEW's Canadian workforce, the Canadian Army will have a high-performing vehicle made with the same dedication and passion as those who serve their country."

BAE Systems has also teamed with DEW for the LEMUR remotely controlled weapon system, which is being offered for the Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle, CCV, LAV III programs and M113 upgrades.

BAE Systems has operated in Canada since 2000. The company has a strong track record in delivering economic benefit by partnering with domestic industries and delivering on offset commitments.
