The New Zealand's ANZAC frigate systems upgrade project has completed the combat system critical design review.
Lockheed Martin Canada claimed that it is major milestone in modernization of the Royal New Zealand Navy's two ANZAC Class ships, the company announced Thursday.
With the government-mandated review, Lockheed Martin Canada can begin implementing detailed designs and plans for the system's key components, which will in turn lead to ship installation.
In April 2014, the company was selected as the Prime Systems Integrator by the New Zealand Ministry of Defence to upgrade the combat systems on their ANZAC class ships.
Lockheed Martin Canada's Combat Management System 330 is the backbone of the technical solution for this project and many of the sub-systems to be supplied by Lockheed Martin Canada are common to the Royal Canadian Navy's Halifax Class Modernization Project.
Lockheed Martin Canada's combat management system was also down-selected as one of two solutions qualified to compete for the Royal New Zealand Navy's Maritime Sustainment Capability - the future replenishment tanker - which will maintain afloat replenishment capability for the New Zealand Defence Force.
