The British firm SEA, a subsidiary of Cohort company will start work in December on upgrading the combat systems highway infrastructure on the Chilean Navy’s three Type 23 combat frigates, Almirante Cochrane, Almirante Condell and Almirante Lynch.

The combat systems highway infrastructure manages data exchange messages, which are a vital and integral feature of the ship’s combat system, enabling operational assets such as the combat management system, surveillance, weapon and sonar systems to communicate in a reliable and deterministic manner. The program is being carried out in preparation for a major revamp of the Chilean Navy ships’ air warfare systems.

The first upgrade will be carried out by SEA, the second ship fit will see Chilean Navy personnel working alongside SEA and work on the third vessel will be handled by Chile.
