Proud Providers of ECPINS Fleetwide

OSI is a proud provider of ECPINS Submarine (WECDIS) to the Royal Navy fleetwide.

As a strategic TLAM, ASW, and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) asset, the Royal Navy’s Astute Class Nuclear Submarine (SSGN) is employed in various challenging operational roles. Operating the platform in diverse and often complex scenarios requires the dedicated crew of over 100 personnel to continuously prioritize integral operational elements, such as the Submarine and crew’s safety and remaining undetected while achieving the end goal. OSI’s ECPINS Submarine is a WECDIS product that delivers a feature-rich, bespoke dived navigation capability for all the RN SSBN and SSGN, particularly in the Astute, where it is hosted within the Shared Computing Environment of the BAE Common Combat System (CCS-SM).

Dived navigation functions include SUBNOTE and Waterspace management; dived safety separation; bottom contour fixing; real-time Pool of Errors computation and manipulation; Warship AIS, and Target Motion Analysis; ECPINS-Submarine offers unprecedented support to the Submarine’s operational capability.
