L3 Technologies has partnered with BAE Systems’ Power and Propulsion Team to provide an Integrated Platform Management System (IPMS) in support of the Royal Australian Navy’s SEA5000 programme.

In the event that BAE’s bid is successful, L3 will provide IPMS – alongside controls and instrumentation – for the nine Type 26 Global Combat Ships proposed as part of the SEA5000 programme. The prized contract, which has a potential worth of AU$35 billion, is anticipated to be awarded by federal government this spring.

L3’s IPMS provides integrated monitoring and enhanced control of warship propulsion and electrical, auxiliary and damage control machinery and systems. The kit is to be brought to Australia via L3, with support from Australian industry and the Canada and UK-based technologist L3 MAPPS.

“This is an excellent example of Australian industry collaboration and innovation to deliver a world-leading solution to the Royal Australian Navy,” said Alan Titheridge, Managing Director of L3 Technologies Australia. “This teaming will achieve unrivalled Australian Industrial Capability (AIC) in this niche domain.”

Rangesh Kasturi, President of L3 MAPPS, added: “The proposed system shares its core technology with more than 200 naval ships in 22 different navies, and we are pleased to support BAE’s proposal for SEA5000 with such leading-edge technology.”

L3 has had a presence in Australia for over a decade. Its workforce has grown steadily, with more than 200 Australians currently employed by L3 in locations as varied as Fremantle, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide.
