Thomas Global Systems completes delivery of Australian Submarine Control System

SYDNEY, Australia – Thomas Global Systems has completed delivery of key components for Stage 2 of the Integrated Ship Control Management and Monitoring System (ISCMMS) Obsolescence Remediation Project for the Royal Australian Navy’s Collins Class submarines.

Saab Australia, the ISCMMS project manager, developer and provider, selected Thomas Global to design and manufacture hardware for the updated Distributed Control Modules and Fixed Conning Consoles as form-fit-function replacements for the current units.

CEO of Thomas Global Systems, Angus Hutchinson said “We are pleased to have delivered Stage 2 of the project on time and within budget in support one of Australia’s most important defence assets. Thomas Global is honoured to continue our long-term support for the Collins Class program in increasing the fleet’s availability for the Royal Australian Navy,” Mr. Hutchinson said.

“We look forward to continuing to offer our support and expertise to the Australian Defence Force and Saab on this and other important programs,” he said.

In January 2018, Saab was awarded the Stage 2 project for the upgrade of HMA Ships Dechaineaux, Rankin, Sheean and Farncomb, following the earlier upgrade of HMA Ships Collins and Waller. Saab Australia is undertaking the ISCMMS Upgrade project in collaboration with ASC, the prime contractor for the Upkeep, Update and Upgrade of the Collins Class submarine fleet.
