IPM System Ordered for Canadian Navy’s AOPS
Irving Shipbuilding Inc. ordered Integrated Platform Management System for Royal Canadian Navy’s (RCN) new Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS).
The Shipyard hired L-3 MAPPS to provide the system. L-3 MAPPS is one of AOPS Prime Contractor Irving Shipbuilding’s Tier 1 suppliers for delivering the AOPS vessels as part of the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS).
Under this contract, L-3 MAPPS will complete the design work undertaken during the earlier project definition phase to build, integrate, test and deliver a modern IPMS for the new vessels.
The L-3 MAPPS IPMS provides comprehensive monitoring and control of a ship’s propulsion, electrical, ancillary, auxiliary and damage control machinery systems.
With advanced functionality, such as the Battle Damage Control System, Onboard Team Training System, Equipment Health Monitoring System and CCTV, as well as integration with the ship’s combat management and navigation systems, the IPMS allows the crew to safely and effectively operate the ship for all mission requirements. L-3 MAPPS’ technology is used by 18 navies worldwide and is installed on most of the RCN’s major warships and submarines.
