Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) frigate HMNZS Te Kaha (F 77) has been transferred to Lockheed Martin Canada and Seaspan Victoria Shipyards for a combat system upgrade under the Anzac Frigate Systems Upgrade (FSU) project.

Lockheed Martin Canada announced on 26 April that it is responsible for designing and supplying a new combat management system – based on its Combat Management System 330 – for each of the RNZN’s two 3,759-tonne Anzac-class (Meko 200) frigates.

The refit, which aims to extend the frigates’ operational life through to the 2030s, also includes the supply and integration of various sensors, a missile system, and a combat systems trainer, said the company, adding that the move marks the first time that a foreign warship has been modernised in Canada since the Second World War.

HMNZS Te Kaha begins refit

Her Majesty’s New Zealand Ship (HMNZS) Anzac-class frigate Te Kaha has been transferred into the care of Lockheed Martin Canada, the company announced on 26 April.

The vessel will receive an upgraded combat management system (CMS) based on Lockheed Martin’s CMS 330, in addition to the integration of other sensors, the Sea Ceptor anti-missile system, and a combat systems trainer, to be refitted for further service.

The original contract for the refit programme, known as the Frigate Systems Upgrade (FSU) was signed in 2014, but a revised version was signed in December 2017, at an expected cost of NZD639 million (USD453 million). (Jane's)
