New Zealand frigate demonstrates new capability following integration of CMS 330

    WORLD  05 December 2023 - 20:42

    The Royal New Zealand Navy successfully conducted the Initial Test Firing onboard HMNZS Te Mana, following the integration of the Canadian-developed CMS 330 Combat Management System (CMS 330). Lockheed Martin Canada integrated the CMS 330, as well as a new suite of sensors and weapons, providing the ship’s crew with superior capabilities and advanced protection against a variety of modern naval threats.

    Lockheed Martin Canada congratulates the Royal New Zealand Navy on the successful Initial Test Firing (ITF) onboard HMNZS Te Mana following modernization upgrades in Canada, according to Naval News.

    As the prime systems integrator, Lockheed Martin Canada was responsible for integrating the upgraded systems on the two New Zealand Anzac class Frigates. HMNZS Te Mana and HMNZS Te Kaha are equipped with Lockheed Martin Canada’s CMS 330 Combat Management System (CMS 330) as well as a new suite of sensors and weapons, providing the ship’s crew with superior capabilities and advanced protection against a variety of modern naval threats.

    “The successful firing of a SeaCeptor missile from HMNZS Te Mana is the culmination of Operational Testing and Evaluation of the Frigate Systems Upgrade project for the two New Zealand Anzac frigates. The integration of multiple mission systems, sensors, and weapons systems with the Lockheed Martin Canada CMS 330 has been successfully proven over the past twelve months of operations and testing. That such a complex project has achieved this level of success is a tribute to the professionalism and technical expertise of the personnel involved.”

    “Lockheed Martin Canada has a proud history of producing, integrating and delivering Combat Management Systems for sea-based mission platforms,” said Glenn Copeland, General Manager, Lockheed Martin Canada Rotary and Mission Systems. “Our team optimized the fully Canadian solution with New Zealand’s ship design, ensuring the Royal New Zealand Navy has the capability to execute missions that meet their strategic naval objectives. CMS 330 was developed in Canada, for the Royal Canadian Navy and is now a globally sought after product. It has created and sustained economic opportunities in communities across the country, where a number of jobs are supported in Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax and Victoria through the software and hardware design, engineering, production, and testing of the advanced technology.”

    CMS 330 serves as the backbone of two ship classes in Canada; the Halifax Class frigates and the Harry DeWolf Class Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships, and will serve as the backbone for three new Canadian ship classes for the next 40+ years; the Protecteur Class Joint Support Ships, the Canadian Surface Combatants, and the Canadian Coast Guard variant of the Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships. In addition to New Zealand, CMS 330 has also been integrated on three Armada de Chile frigates, strengthening the partnership and naval interoperability between the Royal New Zealand Navy, the Armada de Chile and the Royal Canadian Navy.

    “Our continued partnership with the Royal New Zealand Navy in delivering this modernized capability is something we are very proud of”, Copeland continued. “Supporting seven classes of ships across three different navies, the Canadian pedigree and demonstrated interoperability between allied countries will propel further growth for our team and extended Canadian supply chain.”

    Lockheed Martin Canada continues to work with Canadian and New Zealand partners to sustain this critical new capability, while supporting local jobs and creating enduring economic opportunities.
