BURNABY, BC --- OSI Maritime Systems (OSI) announced the signing of a contract to supply new radar as part of the RNZN ANZAC Class Frigate Systems Upgrade (FSU) Project.
The FSU Project is for the upgrade of surveillance, combat and self-defence capabilities including radar.
The new radars will be replacing the previous X-band radar with Furuno FAR-3000 series radars. The two X-band radars will be controlled using OSI’s Radar HMI software module and which combines the video from both radars to give uninterrupted 360° coverage. The radars will be fully integrated into the OSI integrated bridge system which was supplied to the RNZN as part of the previous ANZAC Class Platform System Upgrade (PSU) Project.
The Furuno radar represents one of a number of radars that OSI has successfully integrated into its Integrated Navigation and Tactical System (INTS), and affirms OSI’s position as a “sensor agnostic company”.
In addition to radar, OSI will also be integrating a new inertial navigation system into the ships’ INTS.
OSI has been proudly supporting the RNZN a fleet wide operator of ECPINS® Warship for over fifteen years.
