Exelis’ latest command management information system has successfully completed sea acceptance testing aboard A Norwegian Coast Guard ship. The test was part of a modernization program for the KV Senga that includes the integration of the vessel’s tactical data link, upgrading its computer and displays and navigational system. The CMIS system by Exelis, which can be extended to support new sensor packages such as electronic support measures or advanced sonar, is being deployed on at least two other Norwegian ships over the next two years.”Throughout our longstanding relationship with the Norwegian Coast Guard, we have seen how they operate in a particularly dangerous environment,” said Jim Brunelle, senior director of the Exelis undersea systems business. “The Exelis technology enables them to safely control their ships and helicopters in the high seas and challenging weather conditions of the North Atlantic.”
The Norwegian Coast Guard and Navy have been provided CMIS and data link solutions by Exelis for more than 20 years, the company said.
