Engineering and integrating custom-designed systems for military vehicle projects are a specialty of Rheinmetall Canada. Over the last two decades, the company has acquired broad expertise in vehicle integration commencing with the assembly, integration, and test of the highly sophisticated ADATS missile system. This provided the company with a unique knowledge in the integration of missile, radar, and electro-optic systems, as well as mechanical, electrical, and communication technologies into armoured vehicles. Over the years, we have strengthened these integration skills and combined them with advanced services for refurbishment, repair and overhaul, and long-term support to supply our customers with a complete vehicle management capability.
