Northrop Grumman to supply Platform Management System (PMS) for UK Royal Navy's next Astute-class submarine

 Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) has been selected to supply the Platform Management System (PMS) for the Royal Navy's fifth Astute-class submarine, Anson.

Northrop Grumman's Sperry Marine business unit will supply the PMS for Astute Boat 5 under a performance partnering arrangement (PPA) with BAE Systems Maritime-Submarine. BAE Systems will install the PMS equipment, which controls and monitors the submarine's platform machinery and onboard systems, at its shipyard in Barrow-in-Furness, U.K. The contract also includes software, safety case, equipment and obsolescence management.

The Astute-class is the Royal Navy's latest series of nuclear-powered hunter-killer submarines. Northrop Grumman's Sperry Marine business unit previously supplied the PMS for Astute Boat 4, Audacious.

The PMS will include control and monitoring software, human interface equipment and programmable logic controller-based hardware located throughout the submarine. All hardware has been system-engineered to meet naval hardware standards for shock, vibration, temperature and electromagnetic compatibility requirements.
