Northstar Network, Canadian Navy Contract

Thursday, March 19, 2009

Northstar Network Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Northstar Electronics Inc. (OTCBB: NEIK), has been awarded a $2.6m contract by L-3 Communications MAPPS Inc. (L-3 MAPPS) to manufacture 66 Standard Marine Consoles and 60 Local Operating Panels as part of its Integrated Platform Management System (IPMS). This upgrade will modernize the Canadian Navy's 12 Halifax Class Frigates and improve their operational effectiveness.

“L-3 MAPPS’ IPMS provides an advanced ship control and monitoring capability 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,” said Howard Nash, President of Northstar.

L-3 MAPPS first implemented the pioneering Integrated Machinery Control System (IMCS) on the Canadian Patrol Frigate program in the 1980’s. Since then, the company has been continuously innovating its open‐architecture IPMS, which is currently exported to 18 navies around the world.

The Halifax Class frigate is a class of multi‐role patrol frigates that have served the Canadian Forces since 1992. The HMCS Halifax was the first of twelve Canadian‐designed and built vessels, which combine traditional anti‐submarine capabilities with systems to manage surface and air threats. In 2007, the Canadian government announced a planned refit of the Halifax Class known as the Halifax Class Modernization program.
