Lockheed Martin Canada Delivers Combat System Trainer to Royal New Zealand Navy
OTTAWA, Ontario — Completing the first major delivery under the New Zealand ANZAC Frigate System Upgrade Project, prime systems integrator Lockheed Martin Canada and Chief of Navy Rear Adm. John Martin have officially opened the New Zealand ANZAC combat system trainer, the company announced in a March 14 release.
The combat system trainer was delivered ahead of schedule to the Maritime Warfare Training Centre at the Royal New Zealand Navy base in Devonport on Feb. 16.
“It is wonderful to receive the trainer early which will allow our sailors to be properly prepared when the upgraded ships arrive,” Martin said in the release. “Lockheed Martin Canada’s combat system trainer is a world class trainer that will revolutionize the way we train our crews.”
“The ANZAC combat system trainer provides a generational shift in training capability with a realistic synthetic environment capable of generating high fidelity simulations of real world conditions,” said Rosemary Chapdelaine, vice president and general manager Lockheed Martin Canada Rotary and Mission Systems. “We are proud of our Canadian-developed solution and thrilled to deliver this advanced capability to the Royal New Zealand Navy.”
This milestone marks the first international delivery of Lockheed Martin Canada’s combat management system, CMS 330, product line, initially developed for Canada’s Department of National Defence and then modified for the Royal New Zealand Navy with Canada’s support.
