Ocean Marine Systems has successfully completed the second FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) of their through-hull instrument deployment hoist for security and safety systems integrator MARSS.

MARSS awarded Ocean Marine Systems the contract to deliver six deployment hoists, one for each Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) in build for the Malaysian Navy. The first two hoists have already successfully passed their FAT’s and been delivered, with the final four on schedule. The unique hoists form part of the MARSS NiDAR system which integrates multiple sensors to deliver a 360º air, surface and underwater security perimeter.

To date Ocean Marine Systems have delivered several hoists to the security and survey industry. The hoists offer a uniquely stable way to deploy instruments offering protection from underwater threats or provide a platform for survey work whilst maintaining a constant speed. In this specific case, Ocean Marine Systems installed the customer supplied sonar, a bespoke gate value actuator as well as designing a more compact unit without compromising functionality.

The Ocean Marine Systems through-hull instrument deployment hoists allows MARSS to provide underwater perimeter security 24/7 365 days a year.

Rob Balloch from MARSS stated:

“The LCS’ are currently in build at Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn. Bhd, Malaysia with the first launch due in 2019, and the remaining five within the year. We are really pleased with joint development work on this solution and look forward to future joint projects with the instrument hoist experts at OMS.”
