Combat Management Systems

Combat Management System
We are the sole supplier and integrator of combat management systems (CMS) for the UK Royal Navy’s surface and sub-surface fleet.

We have worked closely with the UK Royal Navy to combine our experience in development and support and their experience in warfighting to shape the development of these systems. Our strength in command and information systems includes interfaces to a wide range of combat system equipment and leading European and US weapon systems.

Our CMS family supports planning, tactical picture compilation, decision-making and weapon control to meet multiple emergent threats in blue water and littoral operations. CMS-1 is the heart of the combat system, providing situational awareness and weapon control from its intuitive consoles.


CMS-1 was developed for the UK Royal Navy’s Type 45 Destroyers and we will support it in service with the Royal Navy for at least the next three decades. A programme of through-life technology refresh and capability upgrades  will ensure that CMS-1 continues to meet operational requirements in the future.

CMS-1 supports NATO and other coalition operations, and we are constantly evolving programmes to enhance the network enabled capabilities of its sensors and command systems on a number of further naval ships.
