We are the sole supplier and integrator of combat management systems (CMS) for the UK Royal Navy’s surface and sub-surface fleet.
We have worked closely with the UK Royal Navy to combine our experience in development and support and their experience in warfighting to shape the development of these systems. Our strength in command and information systems includes interfaces to a wide range of combat system equipment and leading European and US weapon systems.

Our CMS family supports planning, tactical picture compilation, decision-making and weapon control to meet multiple emergent threats in blue water and littoral operations. CMS-1 is the heart of the combat system, providing situational awareness and weapon control from its intuitive consoles.

Programme(s)

CMS-1 was developed for the UK Royal Navy’s Type 45 Destroyers and we will support it in service with the Royal Navy for at least the next three decades. A programme of through-life technology refresh and capability upgrades  will ensure that CMS-1 continues to meet operational requirements in the future.

CMS-1 supports NATO and other coalition operations, and we are constantly evolving programmes to enhance the network enabled capabilities of its sensors and command systems on a number of further naval ships.

FARNBOROUGH, England, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- BAE Systems said last week it was displaying its Combat Management System at the LIMA show in Malaysia.

The company said in a statement that it had "developed considerable capability in the area of Naval Combat System Integration and will be displaying the Combat Management System -- CMS-1 -- at LIMA."

"CMS-1 is at the heart of the Combat System and is the hub of the fighting capability of the Royal Navy's Type 45 Destroyer. Developed from war-fighting experience and proven combat operations, CMS-1 will be supported in operation for at least the next three decades," BAE Systems said.

"CS-1 is inherently scalable, over 25 consoles are being fitted in Type 45, a single console variant has been delivered to the Royal Navy's Offshore Patrol Vessel (Helicopter) program and a five console variant will be fitted to RFA Argus," BAE Systems said.

Cambridge Pixel to supply radar scan conversion to BAE systems for RN Type 45 Destroyer and QE class aircraft carrier programs.

< Edited >

BAE Systems Mission Systems in New Malden and Portsmouth, England has integrated Cambridge Pixel’s software-based SPx radar scan converter into its command
and control client software. This enables radar video to be received from multiple radars on-board the ships into a server application and then distributed over Ethernet networks to command and control displays across the ship.

The server application is built from Cambridge Pixel’s HPx-100 radar acquisition cards and SPx software modules for compression and network interfacing. The new client-side software radar video rendering provides enhanced flexibility and capability at reduced cost over previous generation hardware rendering solutions. Brian Page, Chief Technical Authority for the CMS-1 Combat Management System product at BAE Systems Mission Systems, said: “We chose Cambridge Pixel’s solution for these programmes because of their advanced software solution and flexible product architecture. Our software engineers were able to work with Cambridge Pixel to integrate the SPx capabilities into our server and client software.
