Integral Systems Europe Enters Multi-Year Contract with Thales to Provide Network Management System (NMS) to the Norwegian and Netherlands Navies
TOULOUSE, FRANCE, July 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Integral Systems Europe (ISE), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Integral Systems, Inc., (Nasdaq: ISYS) has been chosen to provide advanced network monitoring and management systems to the Norwegian Navy’s fleet of NANSEN class frigates and Netherlands Navy NAVSAT class frigates. ISE entered into a three-year agreement with Thales and will provide the company’s Compass Network Management solution for this contract as well as future yet to be disclosed projects. Compass is a product of Newpoint Technologies, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Integral Systems.
Earlier this year, Thales was selected by the Norwegian and Netherlands Defense Procurement Divisions to increase the effectiveness of satellite communications for five of their NANSEN class Frigates and four NAVSAT frigates. Compass will be integrated into the Thales-provided SATCOM solution to centralize onboard equipment monitoring, giving SATCOM operators a complete overview of communication assets on each frigate.
“We are pleased that Integral Systems and our Compass product has been selected by Thales, one of the world leaders in aerospace, defense, and security to support the advanced communications systems deployed onboard these new warships,” said Bruno Dupas, President, Integral Systems Europe. “Since its introduction, Compass has built a strong reputation in the industry for its reliability and interoperability into existing communications networks, making it the ideal solution for managing large, complex naval systems.”
