Saab's 9LV Combat Management System (CMS), the system chosen for Australia's Offshore Patrol Vessels and replenishment ships and already in operation on Anzac class frigates and the Landing Helicopter Docks, has been successfully used in the Information Warrior 18 (IW18) event.

Saab's 9LV Combat Management System (CMS), the system chosen for Australia's Offshore Patrol Vessels and replenishment ships and already in operation on Anzac class frigates and the Landing Helicopter Docks, has been successfully used in the Information Warrior 18 (IW18) event.

The exercise, led by the Royal Navy and defence industry, was held at the Royal Marines' Stonehouse Barracks and at British multinational defence technology company QinetiQ’s Portsdown Technology Park with the aim to drive the future development of warfare capabilities, focusing on the computerised side of modern warfare.

Royal Navy Commodore Ian Annett said the event showcased the future of information warfare for defence and industry.

"IW18 has more than simply benchmarked current capability to allow for further testing, it has demonstrated available technology to progress the Royal Navy’s Information Warfare vision, through both the development of its own representative open architecture and close participation from industry," CDRE Annett said.

"It is encouraging to see major defence contributors such as Saab willing to demonstrate how their CMS and Tactical ICS are able to operate on a government-owned open architecture. I am convinced this will help us to continue the development of an information advantage and deliver relevant, cost-effective cutting edge warfare capabilities."

Saab's TactiCall Integrated Communication System (ICS) was also on show for IW18. TactiCall ICS interconnects all communication technologies, reducing effort and risk and increasing tempo. It is the only Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) integration platform currently certified to EAL5+ within the NATO community.

TactiCall is used by the Australian and Norwegian militaries, and has civilian application, including emergency services and the offshore sector.
