OSI to Upgrade the Royal Navy’s Fleetwide Deployment of ECPINS-W Sub with Additional Advanced Capabilities

Burnaby, BC, Canada - OSI Maritime Systems (OSI) is pleased to announce the signing of a contract with the Royal Navy to upgrade its fleetwide ECPINS-W Sub license. The upgrade includes two modules from the OSI ECPINS software suite of capabilities: Ship Helicopter Operating Limits (SHOL), and Officer of the Watch State Board (OOW SB). OSI will also be providing engineering modification services to meet specific customer requirements. SHOL assists in the launch and recovery of aircraft supporting ship operations. The module displays the ship’s heading, relative wind speed and direction, and deck landing limitations while simultaneously displaying SHOL patterns. For each aircraft type cleared to the class of vessel, there is preconfigured data that provides SHOL patterns for various weight, operation modes, and time periods. OOW SB is a screen layout that records and tracks navigational and operational information. The information is presented in data windows such as navigation, operations, command, weather, boat, helicopter, and communications. OOW SB’s advance updating feature automatically updates displayed information; this is in contrast to the more common manual process. OSI has been supporting the Royal Navy’s fleetwide warship integrated navigation and tactical system requirements since 2004. This recent contract confirms OSI’s focus on innovation and the Navy’s commitment to the company’s technology. ECPINS-W Sub is the only software certified by an International Association of Classification Societies approved body against the NATO WECDIS STANAG 4564 Ed2.
