The IBS supplied is derived from OSI’s warship integrated navigation and tactical system (INTS), but custom built to the RAN’s requirements. The IBS has also been integrated with OSI’s warship navigation software known as ECPINS, which has been installed across the RAN’s fleet, said the company in a statement.

Australia signed a contract for two AORs with Navantia in 2016 under Canberra’s Project Sea 1654 Phase 3 Maritime Operational Support Capability programme.

The programme’s first-of-class, which will be known as HMAS Supply (A 195) once commissioned, completed its sea acceptance trials in August 2020, while its sister ship, the future HMAS Stalwart (A 304), was launched in August 2019.

The Supply class has an overall length of 173.9 m, an overall beam of 23 m, and a hull draught of 8 m. The ships are derived from the Spanish Navy’s Cantabria-class AORs, and can each embark one helicopter on the flight deck.
