The Canadian Department of National Defence has selected Elbit Systems UK, whose parent organization is Israel’s Elbit defense company, to purchase the Torch-X battle-management application, the company announced on Tuesday.

The procurement was made as part of Canada’s Airspace Coordination Centre Modernization Project, said the statement.

“The project requires the delivery of a digitized information-based system for air situational awareness,” it described, as well as for “enhanced airspace coordination and management into headquarters. The solution to be supplied will be provided to the Canadian Military Headquarters for both Land and Joint Command in order to support air missions and joint-task force operations.”

Under the terms of the project, Elbit Systems UK will supply a joint air version of the Torch-X application. The system constantly displays a local air picture, “thus enabling effective coordination of air assets into complex land and joint battlespace,” said Elbit.

It will also enable connectivity to the Canadian Armed Forces’ existing applications and datalinks.
