Torpedo Launcher System for CSC

Canadian Defence firm JSK Naval Support is an established provider of engineering services and in-service support for the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and prime contractors. 

JSK has recently been selected by Lockheed Martin Canada to supply its Torpedo Launcher System (TLS) to the new Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) program. As part of the initial contract order, JSK will supply four new TLS ship sets to the program between 2024 and 2026. The new CSC will be an advanced and multi-mission combat ship, equipped with next-generation technology, which will support and protect the Royal Canadian Navy for the next 40 years.
The system was chosen by Lockheed Martin Canada for its weapon-agnostic capability, as well as JSK’s commitment to developing Canadian TLS expertise. The TLS will be built and maintained in Canada, with JSK employing and training additional Canadian engineering professionals to enhance its production and integration capability. This new effort will include, a new purpose-built test centre in its Pointe Claire, Quebec facility for testing and evaluation of completed systems and software and follow-on support/training phases of the program. JSK has developed a fully integrated supply chain to ensure full lifecycle support throughout the entire program and systems life.

The fully qualified TLS will provide a close range, rapid-reaction weapon agnostic launch capability for a variety of NATO standard light weight torpedoes. With a modern TLS electronics suite, the system can calculate target position based on sonar and ship data alongside control from the combat management system.
An essential combat system component, the launcher system, and its open architecture ensures compatability with the latest weapons along with the Mk 46(V) / Mk 54 torpedo. Thanks to this inherent flexibility, it offers a durable and future-proof solution for the CSC program.
Commencing work on the CSC program is a significant milestone for JSK. “Working both directly for the Department of National Defence, and through its prime contractors, we maximize operational availability through the maintenance and upgrade of key systems and sub-systems,” says VP Operations at JSK Naval Support Neil Herbert. “Our services are designed to ensure that both legacy and new-build systems are maintained to a high state of operational readiness and effectiveness.”
