OSI to supply bridge systems to Navantia

24th October 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


OSI Maritime Systems has signed a contract with Navantia to supply two Integrated Bridge Systems (IBS) for the Royal Australian Navy's (RAN's) Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment (AOR) programme, OSI announced on 20 October.

OSI will supply a solution based on its warship Integrated Navigation and Tactical System (INTS) system customised to meet RAN requirements. INTS allows core capability to be designed into a range of bridge configurations such as those found in offshore patrol vessels and frigate programmes

OSI will also provide its warship navigation software, ECPINS, which is licensed fleet-wide by the RAN.

Ken Kirkpatrick, president and CEO, said: 'We are pleased to be working with Navantia to deliver this important project, and equally pleased with our continued relationship with the RAN. The Australian naval market presents significant IBS opportunities for OSI and this project will provide us the foundation to build on.'

Navantia is building two new AOR vessels for the RAN to replace the HMAS Success supply ship which is set to reach its end of life in 2021. The new design is based on the Spanish Navy's Cantabria ship, tailored to meet the needs of the RAN.
