OSI to design CSC’s IBNS
OSI Maritime Systems has been selected by Lockheed Martin Canada to design the Integrated Bridge and Navigation System (IBNS) for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) programme, the company announced on 16 April.
The prime contractor for the CSC programme is Irving Shipbuilding, which will build 15 ships at its Halifax shipyard.
The CSC project aims to replace both the Iroquois-class destroyers and the Halifax-class multi-role patrol frigates with a single class of ship.
Based on OSI’s ECPINS, the IBNS integrates selected radars and navigation sensors, providing a comprehensive military navigation system.
