Our Work: Marine
Astute Class Platform Management System Central Computer Software
Stirling has been involved with the Royal Navy Astute submarine programme since 1996, initially providing the algorithm designs for both the depth and course autopilot and the hover system for Boats 1 to 3. For Boat 4, in addition to the algorithm design, Stirling are supplying the PMS (Platform Management System) central computer software.
Submarine Control System Design
Stirling autopilot software is currently installed on six different classes of submarine in a variety of different configurations, and is in-service with many different navies across the globe.
Modelling & Simulation of Towed Buoy
Our client, Atlas Elektronik, had conducted a technology demonstrator programme to design a towed buoy and required a modelling and simulation partner to support its evaluation of the buoy performance in a number of mission-critical scenarios.
The Future of Submarine Control
In the future, submarine platform design will require systems that improve performance in terms of stealth and increased mobility, while providing operational autonomy and reducing operator workload and operational costs. To improve the capabilities of future submarines for new roles and missions, we developed the Full Authority Submarine Control (FASC) product.
