Navantia has won a contract from the Spanish Navy to develop and install an upgraded version of its integrated platform control system (Sistema Integrado de Control de la Plataforma: SICP) for the Segura-class minehunters.
The EUR8.1 million (USD9.6 million) contract will run until 2022 and include the modernising of training systems and a land-based monitoring centre.
Work will focus on upgrading the system’s interface, bringing it into line with the standards used in the Spanish Navy’s larger ships. It will be carried out in two phases, with development and testing to be followed by staggered installation in the ships from 2020 onwards.
