Northstar Add-On Contract from L-3 MAPPS

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Northstar Network Ltd. announced that it has been awarded another add-on to the multi million contract awarded by L-3 MAPPS Inc. in March 2009 to build consoles for land-based trainers for the Halifax Class of ships. The original contract to manufacture 66 Standard Marine Consoles and 60 Local Operating Panels as part of its Integrated Platform Management System (IPMS) was broadened in August 2009 to include the design and manufacture of the land-based training simulators for the East Coast Navies. Now the contract is once again being expanded to add the Canadian Navy’s west coast training simulators, engineering support for the program and additional components for both domestic and foreign naval upgrade programs.

L-3 MAPPS’ IPMS provides advanced ship control and monitoring capabilities for the Frigates’ ship platform systems, including propulsion, electrics, auxiliaries, and steering. It also provides advanced functionality with a damage control system, an on-board training system, CCTV integration and an interface with the ship’s new combat management system.
