CAE To Supply Control Systems, Upgrade Study for Patrol Frigates

Tuesday, November 05, 2002
CAE has been selected to provide display replacements and perform a supportability study for the CAE-developed Integrated Machinery Control System (IMCS) aboard the Canadian Navy's Halifax class Canadian Patrol Frigates. The value of the contract is approximately C$4 million. In addition to replacing IMCS console displays with state-of-the-art, high-resolution flat panels, CAE will be conducting a supportability study to analyze future IMCS support and upgrade requirements for the 12 Halifax class frigates. Supportability studies are integral to the Navy's equipment life- cycle management, determining when, where and how equipment is maintained, repaired or upgraded over its useful life. The IMCS monitors and controls shipboard machinery systems, including gas turbines, cruise diesel engines, electrical generators, gearbox and auxiliary systems. Also included are advanced functions such as on-board training and equipment health monitoring. "We are pleased the Canadian Navy continues to recognize CAE as a premier supplier of naval control systems expertise worldwide, and considers us a valuable partner for the Canadian Navy Halifax Class Frigate Program," said Rashid Khan, Executive Vice-President, Marine Controls, CAE. The contract covers all 12 of the fleet's vessels based in Esquimalt, British Columbia, and Halifax, Nova Scotia, as well as the Navy's IMCS Trainer located at the Canadian Forces Naval Engineering School in Halifax.
