L-3 MAPPS pioneered the development and evolution of modern Integrated Platform Management Systems (IPMS), which are comprehensive warship automation systems. It also has the most technically advanced Integrated Bridge System on the market to date.
The IPMS provides integrated monitoring and control of all of the ship’s platform machinery and systems such as propulsion, steering, electrical generation & distribution, auxiliaries, fire/smoke/flood detection and damage control. The IPMS features advanced capabilities such as on-board full mission team training and equipment health monitoring. Not only is the L-3 MAPPS IPMS the most advanced, it is the most proven system with over 6 million hours of operational experience at sea.
L-3 MAPPS was the first to develop and implement the concept of an integrated control system on the Canadian Navy’s Patrol Frigate Programme in the early 1980s. Since then, MAPPS has continued its extensive research and development activities, and offers the most comprehensive and advanced IPMS available. MAPPS marine systems are in use by 18 navies around the world, and on over 140 warships.
The L-3 MAPPS Integrated Bridge System is a completely Integrated Navigation System that is the most technically advanced on the market today. Its unique multi-function workstations allow any navigation function to be performed from any console, greatly improving operator efficiency and vessel safety.
