Chilean submarine docks in California for CHILEMAR VI

first_img September 7, 2016 Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today Chilean Navy submarine docks in California for CHILEMAR VI drill Share this article View post tag: SS Thomson View post tag: Chilean Navy Chilean Navy submarine docks in California for CHILEMAR VI drill The Chilean Navy diesel-electric submarine SS Thomson (SS 20) arrived at Naval Base Point Loma on Sept. 6 to participate in the Chile-U.S. bi-lateral exercise CHILEMAR VI.CHILEMAR is designed to demonstrate interoperability between U.S. submarine rescue systems and Chilean submarines, including a simulated submarine rescue operation, and to promote greater understanding and cooperation between the two nations.During this iteration of CHILEMAR, Undersea Rescue Command (URC), assigned to CSS-11, plans to conduct a full scale submarine rescue exercise with Thomson. URC intends to utilize divers donning atmospheric diving suits (ADS) along with a pressurized rescue module (PRM). The PRM is a submarine rescue chamber that submerges to the submarine on the ocean floor and seals over its hatch to conduct a personnel transfer.CHILEMAR supports the Diesel-Electric Submarine Initiative (DESI). DESI enhances the Navy’s capability to operate with diesel-electric submarines by partnering with South American navies equipped with these vessels. This provides a degree of authenticity and realism to exercises, providing the Navy with opportunities to build experience both tracking and operating with them. The program strengthens partnerships and encourages cooperation between partner nations, furthering the capabilities of U.S. maritime strategy.Cmdr. John Croghan, senior deputy, Commander, Submarine Squadron 11 (CSS-11), greeted Chilean Navy Cmdr. Oscar Manzano, the commanding officer of Thomson, on the pier upon the ship’s arrival.“I am very pleased and excited to work with the U.S. Navy,” said Manzano.“I’m pleased we have been able to add submarine rescue as an additional capability on top of those we already get through the DESI initiative,” said Croghan.URC has the only U.S. based deep ocean submarine rescue capability and is trained to respond to submarine emergencies around the world.

General Micro Systems bags US Navy ship displays deal

first_img General Micro Systems bags US Navy ship displays contract Share this article Authorities February 22, 2017 View post tag: General Micro Systemscenter_img View post tag: US Navy Facing end-of-life challenges, old displays on ships in the U.S. Navy fleet are being replaced by new ones that are to be delivered by General Micro Systems, the company announced in February.From an RFQ first seen in 2013, the SD19 SmartView display system is now in the deployment phase. General Micro Systems has been awarded multi-year contracts to deliver tens of displays per ship, with volume of several dozen ships per year.“Combined, all programs will exceed several million dollars in revenue to GMS per year. And it started with a long-time customer,” said GMS CEO Ben Sharfi. “They knew we were in the smart display business, and they knew we supplied VME-based single-board computers to the Navy’s fleet of ships.”Upon receipt of the system specification that required not only backwards compatibility with the existing display but also incorporated a ship data-management computer function, GMS quoted a smart display system that was a fraction of the cost, thinner and combined multiple functions into one.The technical challenge was maintaining one hundred percent backwards compatibility with the existing display system while still adding the complete computer subsystem within the same physical space. “The other guys were over 8-inches thick, used a technology that isn’t rugged, and required a fan,” said Sharfi. “We are around 3.5-inches thin, passively cooled, and run circles around the competing solutions.” Back to overview,Home naval-today General Micro Systems bags US Navy ship displays contract last_img read more

Third Royal Navy Dreadnought-class SSBN named HMS Warspite
