The Canadian Space Agency has awarded a pre-phase A contract to MDA for Canadarm3 integration support. It is the first Lunar Gateway contract awarded under Canada's $2.05 billion long term commitment to the Moon.

The contract comes less than a month after the government announced that MDA had been selected to be the prime contractor for Canadarm3.
