Providing POE cameras to Canadian Navy

Kongsberg Maritime has been selected to provide a range of rugged compact Power Over Ethernet (POE) cameras to Montreal-based L-3 MAPPS Inc. (L-3 MAPPS) as part of the Canadian Navy’s HALIFAX Class Frigate upgrade.

The HALIFAX class frigate (hull designation FFH) is a class of 12 multi-role patrol frigates that has served the Canadian Forces since 1992. In 2007, the Canadian government announced a planned refit of the HALIFAX class known as the HALIFAX Class Modernization Project.

L-3 MAPPS is the prime contractor for the supply of its Integrated Platform Management System (IPMS) upgrade. The L-3 IPMS provides integrated monitoring and control of ship propulsion, electrical functions, damage control machinery and systems. The digital CCTV system, typically used for monitoring ship machinery spaces, can be displayed on the IPMS consoles. The system can be configured to automatically display the CCTV image as soon as an active fire sensor is detected in a compartment equipped with CCTV.

Following its success with other Navy programs, Kongsberg Maritime has integrated the latest camera technology into a unique, extremely robust and compact package. All cameras feature the latest H.264 video compression and will work from any standard POE-enabled network switch. Camera options include megapixel colour day/night cameras with IR LEDs and LWIR thermal cameras. All equipment has been fully qualified for naval use, including MIL-STD-901D Shock (Grade A) and MIL-STD-461E for EMI.
