Control Systems for US and Korean Navies


Control Systems for US and Korean Navies

CAE (Toronto, Canada) announced it has been awarded two contracts valued together at approximately $25 million, to supply control systems for ships in the US Navy and the Korean Navy. The first contract is for the Engineering Control System for two ships of the US Navy's San Antonio class Amphibious Assault Ships. The Navy plans to build up to twelve of these 208 meters long, 25,000-ton warships. CAE is already under contract for the first ship of this class, LPD-17 USS San Antonio.

The second contract, awarded by Daewoo Heavy Industries, is to provide the Integrated Platform Management System for the first of the Republic of Korea Navy's new KDX-II class Destroyers with an option for two additional shipsets. The Navy plans to build up to six of these 5,000-ton warships. CAE has already delivered control systems for the Korean Navy's Mine Laying Ships and Mine Sweeper/Hunter programs.

Both systems will provide the integrated management of the ship's platform machinery including propulsion, electrical, auxiliaries, and damage control equipment. Employing CAE's advanced distributed digital controls Integrated Platform Management System technology, these systems provide advanced automation for improved operational effectiveness and survivability of the ship. These contracts follow several recent significant successes for CAE's Marine Controls division, which to date has supplied or been selected to supply advanced automation technology for over 90 warships in 11 navies world- wide.
