Seaspan has awarded a contract to L3 MAPPS for work on the Royal Canadian Navy’s (RCN's) Joint Support Ships (JSS) programme, the company announced on 17 January.

Under the contract, L3 MAPPS will provide the integrated platform management system (IPMS) for JSS. The IPMS will use advanced computer-based technology to control and monitor platform machinery and systems on board the vessels, including advanced functionality such as the battle damage control system, onboard training system and equipment health monitoring capabilities.

Rangesh Kasturi, president, L3 MAPPS, said: ‘L3 MAPPS’ technology will enhance the operational effectiveness of JSS and make it a safer vessel for its crew, other RCN sailors, and the environment. We are proud to be a supplier to the RCN and of our partnership with Seaspan under the National Shipbuilding Strategy.’

The RCN’s new JSS are currently under construction at Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards.
