Lockheed Martin Canada’s Combat Management System (CMS) 330 has been selected by Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards for the Royal Canadian Navy’s future Protecteur-class ships, the company announced on 6 February.

Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards is the prime contractor for Canada’s Protecteur-Class Joint Support Ships (JSS).

The CMS 330 system integrates a ship’s weapons, data, sensors and other equipment into a single operating system. It provides situational awareness by collecting information about the surrounding environment through radars and sensors; converts the data into actionable intelligence; presents information in an intuitive format; and directs ship systems to engage and respond to incoming threats. The system will enable the vessel to counter threats faster and more efficiently while operating in an international threat environment.

JSS are being built to conduct missions in both open-ocean and littoral environments. The vessels will provide re-supply of fuel, ammunition, spare parts and other supplies between ships at sea and will be capable of transporting cargo, supporting operations ashore and responding to threats in challenging environments.
