Lockheed Martin Canada contracted OSI 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 project’s first phase, each shipset was developed, built, and tested at OSI’s production facilities in Burnaby, BC, Canada.

Subsequently, the system was delivered to Irving Shipbuilding to be installed in bridges. Each bridge measures 18m by 8m in dimension. One INBS shipset features ten multifunction 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.
