DARTMOUTH, Nova Scotia, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- The Canadian subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime of Norway is to provide CCTV systems for the Royal Canadian Navy's new class of Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships.
The contract for the closed-circuit camera system was issued by L-3 MAPPS, a Tier 1 supplier to Irving Shipbuilding, which is constructing the vessels.
"Further to our recent CCTV supply for the Halifax-class frigates IPMS upgrade, we are delighted to be able to leverage from our proven marine & naval camera technologies to support L-3 MAPPS, Irving Shipbuilding and RCN on the prestigious AOPS (Artic Offshore Patrol) Program, which is a key milestone in the renewal of Canada's combatant fleet," said David Fleming, Camera Systems Manager for Kongsberg Maritime.
