Ottawa, CANADA – The Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) has signed another contract with the U.S. Department of Defense (U.S. DoD) for the acquisition of a Hyperspectral Imaging System built by LR Tech.  

Based in Lévis, Quebec, LR Tech develops instruments based on infrared (IR) and spectrally-resolved IR technologies for atmospheric and defense remote sensing applications. The company’s ASSIST-II atmospheric sounder and fast scanning VSR (Versatile SpectroRadiometer) are based on state-ot-the-art FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared) designs.

“This contract with the U.S. DoD is another example of the innovative remote sensing capabilities that are available from Canada,” said Diane Montambault, Vice-President of Contract Management and Operations at CCC.

As the designated contracting authority for U.S. DoD procurement from Canada, CCC signed $868 million in exports from Canadian companies to the U.S. DoD during the 2021-2022 fiscal year.
