APC Technology has completed the CIS Watchkeeper Console project for installation into the Royal Australian Navy’s Hobart Class Air Warfare Destroyers (AWD). Installation is taking place in Osborne, South Australia.
The project involved a turnkey approach including design, prototyping, testing and final production. The console meets a range of requirements including the integration of:
- CCTV control keyboard and PC
- Display, keyboard, trackball mouse
- KVM switch
- Power distribution
They have been tested to meet military specification including temperature & humidity environment conditioning.
Keith McDougle, APC Technology’s Engineering Manager commented,
“We are delighted with the final outcome of the consoles. We have worked in conjunction with Raytheon Australia over the last 12 months to meet their requirements and the last console leaves our Adelaide manufacturing plant this month ready to be fitted into the ships.”
