OSI Wins Royal Navy Deal

Thursday, January 08, 2004
Offshore Systems International Ltd. said that its Navigation Systems unit has been selected for a major fleet-wide contract with the Royal Navy. OSI, as part of a successful teaming arrangement with Lockheed Martin UK and Kelvin Hughes Ltd., will begin to deliver ECPINS-M software to the Royal Navy fleet in mid-2004. The initial purchases total approximately CDN $3 million. The total contract value, including long term support and options for auxiliary systems and software development is approximately CDN $17.5 million. "Winning this contract is a significant milestone in the growth of our company," said John Jacobson, President and CEO of OSI. "The Royal Navy's selection has validated years of development work and reinforced our approach to this market. We expect to become the navigation standard used by other navies as the desire for systems inter-operability among allies and the market's widespread move to commercial off-the-shelf components continues to strengthen our position." The contract marks the first major naval procurement of systems built to NATO's WECDIS standard (Warship Electronic Chart Display and Information System). Bill Widner, Acting Group Managing Director, Lockheed Martin UK said, "We are delighted the MoD has selected the Lockheed Martin UK team to provide the Royal Navy with the world's most advanced warship electronic navigation capability. Our WECDIS team combines advanced UK and international technology with proven systems integration and program management skills. Together we will provide the MoD with a solution that is effective, affordable, supportable and low-risk. This win gives us a strong position to exploit the expanding market sector for military navigation equipment on a global scale."
