Ultra Electronics Command and Controls wins follow on order for Hellenic Navy
Ultra Electronics Command & Control Systems (CCS) recently signed a contract with BVT Surface Fleet, the maritime Joint Venture between BAE Systems and VT Group, to supply a further two Ship’s Data Distribution Systems (SDDS) for the Hellenic Navy’s ‘Roussen’ class Fast Attack Craft programme.
Ultra Electronics CCS has also received orders to modify earlier ship fits to support a new weapon system.
Under this programme, prime contractor Elefsis Shipyard are providing seven heavily armed high speed vessels based on BVT’s proven Super Vita design.
BVT provide technology transfer to Elefsis, including combat systems procurement, construction oversight, technical support, weapons setting to work and integration.
Ultra’s SDDS is especially suited to warships of this type, where the provision of prioritised, low latency mission critical sensor data is vital for the accurate and timely deployment of weapons.
This contract is the latest milestone in the successful migration of this business stream from PMES to CCS and further strengthens our relationship with BVT, the UK’s principal naval shipbuilder.
