Special Operations Forces (SOF) Capability and Recapitalization Project

Project Type

Project Replace


The Special Operations Forces (SOF) Capability and Recapitalization Project (SCARP) will procure individual and collective equipment (new and/or recapitalized) required by the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM). SCARP bundles three existing capital projects (Strong, Secure, Engaged (SSE) 60) into a single approval to deliver multiple SOF sub-capabilities: (1) Next Generation Soldier Systems (NGSS); (2) Next Generation Fighting Vehicles (NGFV); and (3) Next Generation Maritime Mobility (NGMM). SCARP will equip the personnel and Special Operations Task Forces from all of the Command’s units.


SCARP sub-projects (NGSS, NGFV, and NGMM) will acquire a wide array of equipment to augment, replace, support, and enhance the fleets of existing CANSOFCOM capabilities. The majority of equipment to be acquired will be military off-the-shelf (MOTS) or commercial off-the-shelf (COTS). The Project includes training (operational, maintenance, recurring, and simulation), provision of project management support, and initial integrated logistic support. The Project also includes the construction of a maintenance/storage facility for the fighting vehicles
