Lockheed Martin BlueLockheed Martin's Canadian subsidiary has achieved first article acceptance for its combat platform onboard seven of the Canadian navy's 12 Halifax-class frigates.

The HCM project is comprised of several phases, including requirements reconciliation, design and implementation as well as the readiness stage.
