SEA nets Royal Navy in-service support contract
The CSH is a communications backbone fitted on surface ships to pass information between C2, sensor and weapons systems.
It allows operators to determine the status of a combat system and ensure mission availability, making it a crucial element of RN ships.
SEA Fleet Wide Combat Management project manager Samantha Bassett said: 'With a detailed technical knowledge of the system and proven level of service on the CSH, SEA has demonstrated its ability to maintain the CSH's mission availability.

Under the new award, SEA will support several ship types, including the Duke-class Type 23 frigates, among others. Work includes support for vessels and shore-based facilities.
SEA originally designed the CSH in the 1980s and provided in-service support over the network's life, including through technological refreshes.
