For those with DIN access, there is an entry in the CID, number C.001420 that's worth a look.

Last annual SRB was well over a decade ago, so I'm thinking this project is not particularly active.

Um, I'll double check but there's some documents from late 2016 in there, so it's not that far on the back burner.  One of the notes discusses Latvia.
Insert disclaimer statement here....

The only exception to the above was the AB AD Tp. When E Bty gave up the para role, the tp was transferred to the CAR and became 16 Pl in the Combat Support Commando. When the AB Regiment was disbanded, the members of the tp were posted to the AB Holding Unit and then went to the three total force AD units.

That was a temporary exception that proves the rule. In any case, the Ab AD Tp weapons (Javelin) were still commanded and controlled within the ADA structure, if push came to shove in a conflict. I was once pretty familiar with the problem....

There's a current UOR for low level GBAD

where do these fit in?

The radar is a key component of the future GBAD. Basically, an IADS has 3 components: sensors, shooter, and C2. With that, canada has 2 of 3, with the 2 most complicated portions covered

It seems like these radar systems are designed to detect enemy munitions as well.  If it works as advertised you get to early warn troops to get under cover, pinpoint more accurately where the enemy artillery is coming from and then take appropriate action to deal with it.  No GBAD shooting parts necessary to be useful at least in this case.
