Mikros Systems has received a new order from the US Navy to install advanced maintenance systems on two additional ship classes.

Mikros Systems has received a new order from the US Navy to install advanced maintenance systems on two additional ship classes.

The company won the order under its ADEPT Distance Support Sensor Suite (ADSSS) contract with the navy.

The new order is valued at up to $6m. Mikros will develop a new variant of the AN/SYM-3 Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) system for installation on the US Navy’s CVN-class aircraft carriers and the LHD/LHA-class large deck amphibious assault ships.

In September, Mikros installed the AN/SYM-3 system on a littoral combat ship (LCS).

The system is designed to provide secure networking, remote status monitoring and data analytics for the components of a ship’s combat system.

Mikros Systems senior programme manager Lori Ogles said: “We are very pleased to report that Mikros has been awarded this new delivery order as design agent for the navy’s AN/SYM-3 system.

“This substantial order extends the system to two additional classes of navy ships. This programme will ensure that we continue to enhance the design and effectiveness of the system, and gives us the opportunity to prove its value on other navy platforms.”

The company stated that the SYM-3 system has the ability to provide operators with near real-time feedback on system performance.

The advanced maintenance solution also performs data analysis to predict trends and future failures.

Mikros Systems CEO Tom Meaney said: “Extending the programme into two new ship classes represents a monumental achievement and provides Mikros with an opportunity to generate multiple additional task orders under our existing IDIQ contract and grow our business.

“We are working diligently to develop new applications for the SYM-3, which provides a cyber-secure environment for remote monitoring and data analytics and helps keep the ship and its systems ready to fight.”
