Built from open architecture, the IPMS system readily accommodates multiple sensors, shipboard equipment‚ systems relationships, process work-flow and diverse types of information including static, dynamic, real-time, active and historical, as well as integrate and operate additional sub-systems within the same framework.
Critical data in real time
The IPMS control system offers impressive visual features including a simplified functional overview of systems; a three-dimensional view‚ providing the exact geographical location of elements inside navy ship compartments as well as a powerful data analytics view which supports maintenance requirements.
Despite the large data collection and storage capacity, a key feature of the IPMS control system is its operational performance, ensuring the data required for mission critical decisions can be accessed fast and used to make critical decisions in real time.
Naval asset longevity
Supporting naval asset longevity and maximising active service, the IPMS acquires management and operational data used to facilitate predictive, preventative and corrective maintenance, obsolescence management, optimise fuel consumption and crew management fleet wide.
Reduce Risk to Naval Assets and Crew
Whilst the IPMS control system is highly complex, its operation is not. The crew is trained using on-board and on-shore training simulators, including emergency response training in the safety of a simulated environment - removing the risk to valuable naval assets.
The IPMS Damage Control function provides emergency management and monitoring for ships under damage conditions. It organises and presents information to assist operators in understanding the situation as it evolves in order to make optimum decisions in response to any emergency.
The IPMS will be on three classes of Australian warships and the underlying system commonality coupled with IPMS solutions for simulation, pierside monitoring and data analysis provide numerous efficiencies in areas such the level of required platform specific training, crewing levels in port, system maintenance and support, platform lifecycle cost as well as the opportunity for streamlined capability enhancement across multiple
platforms via the IPMS network.
