Offshore Systems Ltd. has secured a contract to upgrade the Royal New Zealand Navy
’s (RNZN) Project Protector Fleet to ECPINS W vessel-wide.
In 2003-2004, Offshore Systems was awarded a contract through a competitive bid process to deploy ECPINS M across the RNZN’s entire fleet, as well as throughout the Navy’s training facilities. A deciding factor in awarding this contract was ECPINS M’s high level of compliance with the North Atlantic Treat Organization (NATO) Warship Electronic Chart Display Information System (WECDIS) standard.
“By upgrading to ECPINS W, the RNZN Project Protector Fleet is now fully compliant with the NATO WECDIS STANAG,” says Jim Davison, Director of Sales, Offshore Systems. “ECPINS W provides significant tactical advantage and will enable the RNZN Project Protector vessels to operate most effectively with a superior navi
gational and situational awareness picture.”
