Kongsberg wins Norwegian sub CMS contract
Kongsberg has announced that it has been issued a contract by the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation to supply the MSI-90U Mk 2 Combat Management System (CMS) to the Royal Norwegian Navy’s Ula class submarines. The contract, valued at approximately 200 MNOK, was announced 16 January 2012.
Kongsberg’s MSI-90U Mk 2 Submarine CMS is designed to assist submarine command teams to deal with the massive volume of data that is produced by the submarines’ sophisticated sensors, assisting ISTAR and network-enabled capabilities. The system is based on a fully distributed, easily-upgradeable open computer architecture, laid out around a high-bandwidth data bus and employing state-of-the-art software. The standardised multi-function operator consoles, equipped with the latest flat-screen LCD displays, offer the most user friendly human-computer interface available today.
According to the company, the new contract is a continuation of the on-going contracts for delivery of the new Passive Sonar System and integrated Submarine Navigation System for the Ula class.
