OSI to support RCN’s JSS programme
OSI Maritime Systems (OSI) has signed a contract with Thales Canada to provide integrated bridge and navigation systems (IBNS) for the Royal Canadian Navy’s new Joint Support Ships (JSS) programme, the company announced on 30 May.
The JSS are being built by Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards.
Under the terms of the contract, OSI will supply and install an integrated navigation and tactical system (INTS) that meets JSS IBNS requirements. INTS is a fully scalable, IMO and NATO STANAG 4564 WECDIS compliant integrated bridge system.
Centred around OSI’s ECPINS, the INTS integrates selected radars and navigation sensors, providing a comprehensive military IBNS.
