Proven, Deployed and IT-Secure Remote Maintenance System
Maritime security should be independent of pandemics. Therefore, most navies try to keep up their operational schedules, even though Covid-19 has serious effects, especially on the land-based support processes. In the worst case, travelling bans and a defect not repairable with onboard expertise could bring the mission to a standstill.
The German Navy has been operating ATLAS’ Remote Maintenance System (RMS) for years on their K130 corvettes. The RMS system allows the experts of Marinearsenal Wilhelmshaven to access a defective unit via an encrypted video-voice-data connection – with minimal bandwidth requirements. Linked together by the encrypted and IT-secure connection through SATCom, the onboard maintainers can talk directly to their depot level maintenance experts back home.
SERVICES: Sustaining Superiority
The Remote Maintenance System is just one building block in our integral services and support philosophy, which is highly customer-focused: We sustain superiority. Other building blocks are for example user-friendly designs with intuitive human-machine interfaces or easy and simple access to documentation, that keeps in-stride with configuration changes. An integral view to this philosophy by ATLAS ELEKTRONIK and thyssenkrupp Marine Systems is prominently featured on pages 38/39 of the recent edition of NAVAL FORCES magazine.
