The recent implementation of EID’s Integrated Communication and Control System (ICCS) aboard two of the Royal Australian Navy’s Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment (AOR) ships reflects the company’s consistently strengthening global links.
NUSHIP Stalwart, one of two AOR vessels contracted to Australia back in May 2016, left from Navantia’s Ferrol Shipyard on Thursday 20th May 2021 and is currently touring world oceans before docking at HMAS Stirling. There, EID’s ICCS (Integrated Communications Control System) will be also accepted through scrutinous tests to analyze its efficiency and functionality.
This will not be the first time that EID have provided their communication systems to Australia. With a relationship dating back ten years, EID’s ICCS can also be found on the Australian Royal Navy’s HMAS Choules LSD, and the Hobart Class AWD. The system is also present in the NUSHIP Supply (II), the lead ship of Supply class.
Understanding the necessarily stringent demands of warship communications, EID have built an exceptionally reliable and survivable system which benefits from a distributed architecture and redundancy in its vital components. With a user-friendly system which provides efficient control and management of on-board resources, it is suitable for patrol boats, frigates, destroyers, submarines and any other type of military vessel.
In other news, the company’s communications systems are also being put to the test elsewhere around the world. Factory Acceptance Tests are being carried out on the MLU platform of the first Vasco da Gama Class Frigate, belonging to the Portuguese Navy.
EID also have ongoing business elsewhere in an undisclosed MENA country, where a delivery of tactical communications equipment has been made; this equipment is comprised of vehicular intercoms and tactical radio communications solutions.
