Irving Shipbuilding Selects L3Harris to Provide Integrated Platform Management System for New Canadian Warships

L3Harris has secured two contracts to deliver and install its Integrated Platform Management System on new Royal Canadian Navy warships built under the Canadian Surface Combatant program.

Irving Shipbuilding, which awarded the contracts, leads a consortium working on the shipbuilding project along with Lockheed Martin Canada.

According to L3Harris, IPMS provides automation capabilities for monitoring and controlling ship propulsion, electrical functions, auxiliaries, and damage control machinery and systems. The platform features an open system architecture, allowing users to use various networks for data communications and link it to other systems through fieldbus, serial links and other interfaces.

Equipping the CSC vessels with IPMS will bring increased ship survivability and operational effectiveness, the company said.

Canada is spending $345 million on the CSC program, which will construct 15 warships for RCN.

With the latest contracts, L3Harris expands its support for the program. In May, Lockheed Martin Canada, the company responsible for the vessel design, awarded L3Harris a contract to provide an integrated communication system for the ships.
