How we do it

The complexity and critical nature of a submarine and its systems requires an approach that is highly collaborative. We work closely with our partners, and with our customers and stakeholders in the Royal Canadian Navy, the Department of National Defence, and Public Services & Procurement Canada to understand and adapt to Canada’s platform and capability needs and the Class program schedule and cost constraints.
