OSI was contracted by Lockheed Martin Canada to design, build, and install Integrated Navigation and Bridge Systems (INBS) for each of the Royal Canadian Navy’s Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships(AOPS). In the first phase of the project, each shipset was developed, built, and tested at OSI’s production facilities in Burnaby, BC, Canada.

Subsequently, the system was delivered to Irving Shipbuilding and installed in bridges measuring 18m by 8m. One shipset INBS features 10 multifuction displays and more than 20 operator consoles. Powered by ECPINS, the only third-party STANAG Type Approved WECDIS, the system integration includes X- and S-Band Radar, data distribution units, a variety of sensors, and C2 capabilities.
