The Joint Support Ship (JSS) will replace the Royal Canadian Navy's existing AORs and provide the Canadian Forces future Afloat Logistic and Sealift Capability.
A new class of vessel is envisioned that can provide multi-mission capability in support of a wide range of afloat and ashore operations.
BMT is creating a Contract Design Specification (CDS) of the Joint Support Ship (JSS) for Canada's Department of National Defence (DND).
This CDS is based on a preliminary design completed by BMT, the Concept of Operations (CONOPS), Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL), System Design Reviews, and Design to Cost Checklists.
If selected by the DND, this Contract Design will be passed to Seaspan, who have been selected under the NSPS to conduct the the detail design and construction phases of the JSS.
The Contract Design includes the entire ship, from hull to systems, and in order to complete the Contract Design, BMT conducted work on the:
The Airbus A400M is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft being designed and manufactured by Airbus Military, BMT supported the MoD A400M Project Team with the development of the VfMB required to support the In-Service Support Assessment Phase.
BMT developed a safety product using GSN which interfaces with LHD Hazard log, resulting in a tool that will provide a continuous understanding of the safety status of the LHD capability.
Our support vessels have been developed as a cost-effective option for complying with international maritime regulations to reduce the risk of pollution. AEGIR offers navies a customisable alternative to commercial replenishment tanker capability.
SALVAS, BMT's utility auxiliary ship design, is a specialist vessel that has been developed to combat the complexity of maritime operations.
