Lockheed Martin Canada’s Combat Management System—CMS 330—is a derivative of a Lockheed Martin Canada legacy product that was originally developed in Canada in the 1980’s for the original build of the Royal Canadian Navy’s Halifax-Class ships.
CMS 330 was developed as a result of 25+ years’ experience and knowledge of Canadian and NATO naval operations. Key aspects of the system include:
- The system was designed as a modern, affordable solution for mid-life upgrades in the international market.
- It has an open architecture design which adapts to a variety of subsystems, reducing risk and ensuring delivery of unique customer requirements. As a result, CMS 330 is more than a combat system solution.
- It provides for total system program performance, complete with a full suite of training systems and logistical support tailored to meet customer needs and subsystem choices.
Flexibility and Scalability
Tactical Picture Clarity
Exploiting Full Capability of “Ownship” Weapons
Reduced CMS Operator Workload
High Availability and Reliability
Access to External Networks
Secure Information Networks
Advanced On-Board Training
Robust Data Collection, Storage and Analysis
CMS 330 is designed as a Service Oriented Architecture based on the Data Distribution System standard, making subsystem weapons and sensor changes easy to manage. CMS 330 has proven successful integration of third-party components—including Saab 9LV, Harpoon Block II, Thales Smart-S 3D radar, ESSM, and SeaCeptor missile system.
CMS 330 can be scaled for platforms with different system limits, operator consoles, and subsystems without major rework to the entire system. All Multi-Function Workstations are fully interchangeable, meaning all user roles are available at all consoles. This gives Commanders the flexibility to allocate or remove war fighting capability to each operator role as the situation requires.
CMS 330 core software architecture also forms the Synthetic Environment Advanced Combat Operator Training Systems.
Shore-based and onboard training solutions use the same CMS operational software that is deployed in ships – not simulation software—reducing life cycle and associated support costs while providing high fidelity training and replicating the most demanding multi-threat environments.
With CMS 330 emergence on the International Combat Management System world stage it has now been selected on the following platforms:
