Integrated ship management system upgrade for Collins Class submarines

Defence and security company Saab has signed a contract with ASC Pty Ltd (Australian Submarine Corporation) to update and modernise the Integrated Ship Control Management and Monitoring System (ISCMMS) on the Royal Australian Navy’s Collins Class Submarines. The contract has a total value SEK 180 million.

The ISCMMS system provides the submarine manoeuvring control and integrated platform systems management. Originally developed by Saab it has proven to be a very reliable system of the Australian Collins Class Submarine.

The modernisation program involves updating electronic components and systems to alleviate upcoming obsolescence issues and porting the ISCMMS software to ensure the ISCMMS continues operating dependably into the future.

“ISCMMS has been a very successful part of the Collins Class Submarine and is critical to its on-going operations. With this contract, ASC and the Australian Navy continue to show faith in Saab’s high-tech solutions,” says Gunilla Fransson, head of Saab’s business area Security and Defence Solutions.

Steve Ludlam, ASC Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, said ASC was extremely pleased to have Saab on board for this important project.

The contract will run between 2013 and 2016 and will involve the Security and Defence Solutions operations in Adelaide, Australia.
