28th February 2020 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Ultra will continue to provide the EO tracking system for the UK Royal Navy’s Type 45 destroyers, after the MoD approved a three-year contract with a potential two-year extension.

The EO tracking system is part of Babcock’s Gun System Automation (GSA) 9.

Mike Williams, Managing Director of Ultra CSS, said: ‘Ultra is pleased to be engaged with Babcock in supporting this important frontline system and looks forward to delivering high levels of availability and service throughout the contract.’

The system provides high-resolution video performance with automation options that require minimal operator intervention, which simplifies operation in ISR, detection, acquisition and tracking of enemy targets.
