ICCS is definitely a step forward in shipboard communications. Based on the vast EID experience in the naval communications field, the system concept is fully proven, its outstanding performances being internationally recognised.
MOST4 Ships is an automatic message handling system, featuring a comprehensive set of facilities aimed at reducing the overheads of traditional, on-board message management tasks. Providing a substantial degree of automation, the system reduces the operator's workload, thus minimising the likelihood of occurrence of operational and administrative mistakes.
The reduction of the ship's complement, as far as skilled communication operators are concerned, is also a significant benefit. MOST4 Ships supports the simultaneous operation of all circuits (ship-shore, inter-ship, local and area broadcasts) in accordance with ACP127 message formats and procedures.
STANAG 4406 compliant solutions can also be integrated in MOST 4 Ships, fulfilling ship message requirements in a transition period from ACP 127 to Tactical MMHS.
RRCS can be tailored and configured to provide the centralised remote control of any type of communications equipment, enabling the effective control and monitoring of its working parameters.
The system is composed of:
EID suplies state-of-the-art, high performance Fully Integrated Information and Communications Systems, with ICCS as the core sub-system that glues together all the on-board communications equipment, Besides equipment/sub-systems selection and supply, EID carries out all the design and engineering activities required to supply a fully integrated, operational system. More than 100 EID systems were chosen by the following navies:
