Ottawa-based Canadian Commercial Corporation has been awarded a $49.6 million U.S. Navy contract for sensors.

The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract covers procurement of the Military Sealift Command Situational Awareness System Electro-Optics Sensor system, or MSC-EOS.

"The MSC-EOS Systems will be operated on Military Sealift Command and other Navy or Coast Guard maritime platforms," according to the Department of Defense contract announcement. "The MSC-EOS System’s primary mission is to provide enhanced visual imagery to augment existing electronic sensors. Ancillary uses of the MSC-EOS system will include enhancing the following, low-visibility and night navigation; coastal observation and surveillance; identification friend or foe; real-time situational awareness and threat warning; reconnaissance and surveillance; and documenting navigational hazards."

The work is scheduled to be completed by April 2022 and will be performed in Burlington, Ontario, Canada.
