Under the contract, Raytheon Anschütz will equip Oman’s new Al-Ofouq-class OPVs with a complete, new-generation Integrated Bridge and Navigation Systems. Included in the scope of the program is comprehensive documentation and training for instructors, operators and maintenance support personnel.

The standardized human machine interface and increased functionality of the multifunctional workstations empower crew to operate from any workplace on the bridge.

The design and components also help to reduce costs associated with engineering, logistics, spares and technical support. The scope of delivery is completed with a full package of navigation sensors.

In 2012, the Royal Navy of Oman contracted with Singapore Technologies Marine Ltd to design and build the four patrol vessels and all four  are planned to enter service for the Royal Navy of Oman between 2015 and 2016. The new vessels will replace the old inshore patrol boats.

The new Al-Ofouq class OPVs will undertake various tasks associated with national and regional maritime security missions throughout the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of Oman. The 75 meters OPV's will be fitted with weapon systems, a flight deck for helicopters or drones and will have a maximum speed of 25 knots.
