Chile selects Lockheed Martin Canada CMS

26th May 2017 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin Canada has received a contract to replace the combat management system on the Chilean Navy's three Type 23 frigates, the company announced on 23 May.

The contract will see the company deliver its CMS 330 combat management system along with select subsystems for Chile's Frigate Combat Management System Replacement programme.

The CMS 330 is a derivative of a Lockheed Martin Canada legacy product that was originally developed in Canada in the 1980’s for the original build of the Royal Canadian Navy’s Halifax class ships. The system has an open architecture design which adapts to a variety of subsystems, and provides for total system programme performance, complete with a full suite of training systems and logistical support.

The selection by the Chilean Navy now places the CMS 330 on four classes of ships across three different navies, including Canada and New Zealand.
