ICCS provides secure and reliable communications for any type of warship, from patrol boats and submarines to frigates and aircraft carriers. This state-of-the-art system is designed to enable efficient control and management of the ship's overall communications, featuring:
A flexible design enables a variety of system implementations, as far as the architectural aspects are concerned. Depending on the ship size and operational role, either centralised or fully distributed versions can be selected.
Currently two generations are available: ICCS6, a brand new, IP-based version and the ICCS5, the TDM version.
ICCS6 is essentially composed of:
As far as ICCS5 is concerned, its main components are:
In brief, the ICCS system concept is fully proven, with an internationally recognised and outstanding performance. ICCS is in service onboard more than 100 warships of navies of several countries, such as Portugal, Spain, UK, The Netherlands, Brazil, Indonesia and Australia.
The wireless headset is designed to overcome the limitations of the traditional, cumbersome wired headsets. It is composed of a compact radio unit and headset, the same used with the voice and user terminals. To enable wireless communications, a proper gateway and antenna must be installed in either the EIDCOM320 or EIDCOM400. The main features are:
Battery chargers are also available to charge the radio units.
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 is also a significant benefit to skilled communication operators. 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 into MOST4 Ships, fulfilling ship message requirements in a transition period from ACP 127 to Tactical MMHS.
RRCS can be tailored and configured to provide centralised remote control of any type of communications equipment, enabling effective control and monitoring of its working parameters.
The system is composed of:
EID supplies state-of-the-art, high-performance fully integrated communications systems, with ICCS as the core sub-system that glues together all on-board communications equipment, equipment/sub-systems selection and supply. EID also carries out all design and engineering activities required to supply a fully integrated, operational system.
