    The IP Company signed a contract with Damen for delivering their wireless communications system for new build Combat Support Ship

    The IP Company signed a contract with Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) for the
    delivery and installation of their Wireless Communication & Messaging System (WCMS) for
    the Royal Netherlands Navy’s (RNLN) Combat Support Ship (CSS), Den Helder.
    With the contract, the RNLN will receive a system based on proven technology and
    standardized to provide commonality across the Dutch naval fleet. The IP Company has
    delivered the WCMS onboard the RNLN’s Ocean-Going Patrol Vessels of the Holland Class
    and the Joint Support Ship HNLMS Karel Doorman. This means that the complete CSS
    system has the same look and feel as the systems present on the other vessels. It also
    guarantees that new developments on the Holland Class and HNLMS Karel Doorman will be
    implemented on the CSS as well. This commonality offers not only crew familiarity, but also
    optimizes training, maintenance and many other processes.
    The IP Company is at the forefront of technology and offers innovative solutions for a truly
    state-of-the-art secure wireless communications system. The unique feature of our systems
    are that they convey both voice and data, enabling communication between crew members,
    both in the administrative and operational domains. The system is an integrated one, which
    connects regular desk phones as well as secure wireless handheld devices, all further
    enhanced with specific functions for naval use, ensuring that information ends up directly at
    the right people. These people can then be mobilized immediately, increasing efficiency and
    improving on board safety.
    Although DSNS has collaborated with The IP Company on previous vessels built for the
    Royal Netherlands Navy, for which the Defence Materiel Organisation acted as intermediary,
    the two companies will now work together directly to provide the CSS with a wireless
    communication suite with proven high reliability. Following the signing of the contract, The IP
    Company will commence engineering. Equipment supply to the CSS is scheduled to begin in
    the first half of 2022.
