OSI to Deliver IBNS for the US Navy LCS Program

OSI Maritime Systems said it has signed a contract with Lockheed Martin to provide its Integrated Bridge and Navigation System (IBNS) for the U.S. Navy Freedom-variant Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) program.

"We are pleased to have signed this very important contract with Lockheed Martin. Over the years, OSI has built a strong business relationship with Lockheed Martin through the successful delivery of a number of projects for customers around the world," said, Ken Kirkpatrick, OSI President and CEO. "The U.S. naval market presents a significant growth opportunity for OSI and the LCS program provides us our first big step into this huge market."
The system is designed for warships and conforms to American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) Class Rules for Navigational Integrated Bridge System (NIBS). In addition, it has received Marine Equipment Directive (MED) Type Approval certification from DNV GL as an Integrated Navigation System (INS).
"OSI's IBNS provides the bridge team with a highly integrated navigation and operations picture. The modern design, which will meet multiple MIL-SPEC requirements, supports advanced tactical features that will provide the commanding officer an expanded operational envelope in the most demanding mission environments," stated Chris Haugen, Director, Business Development.
With the aim of increasing safe and efficient warship management, IBNS is a combination of interconnected systems, allowing for centralized access to sensor information and command and control from workstations located as required throughout the ship. IBNS features include: Warship Electronic Chart Display and Information System (WECDIS), surface search radar display, track planning and automatic track following, speed control, integrated navigation information displays, and bridge alarm management.
