Kongsberg Maritime has delivered a new large network Internet Protocol (IP) CCTV system to Chantier Davie Canada following successful factory acceptance testing, the company announced on 9 May.

The system will be installed on the Royal Canadian Navy's (RCN's) interim auxiliary naval replenishment ship.

Chantier Davie Canada is supplying an interim supply ship to the RCN until the Queenstown class auxiliary vessels enter service. The company is converting the container vessel MS Asterix into an auxiliary oiler replenishment ship for this purpose, with the vessel expected to enter into service in 2017.

Kongsberg's digital IP CCTV solution for MS Asterix includes marine cameras, video management software, ruggedised central control rack server/storage, operator workstations, distributed power over ethernet (PoE) network switches and uninterrupted power supply.

The system uses 24 marine grade IP PoE fixed cameras that provide HD images for advanced situational awareness across the vessel. The Kongsberg Maritime 0482-6030 Marine HD PoE camera is an ultra-rugged IP camera designed for use in tough environmental conditions.

The solution incorporates 10 IP stainless steel pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) camera stations. The PTZ cameras utilise a high resolution low light colour/mono sensor with 18x optical zoom and feature an integrated wiper system. Also part of the network are four marine grade IP PTZ Dome cameras with 18x optical zoom. All cameras in the Kongsberg IP CCTV range can operate with the company's open platform video management software.

Once all equipment has been installed, Kongsberg will provide engineering support to carry out on-board commissioning of the CCTV system.
