Navantia IPMS in TCG Anadolu and its future in Türkiye

Navantia “Integrated Platform Management System” (IPMS) is a cutting-edge system which integrates various shipboard systems and provides centralized control, monitoring, and operation of a vessel's critical systems.

With its proven track record in delivering last generation IPMS solutions for various naval platforms worldwide, Navantia IPMS is designed to enhance the operational capabilities and safety of naval platforms and holds great potential for the future of Tükiye 's naval capabilities.

Türkiye, with its strategic location and coastlines along the Mediterranean, Aegean, and Black Seas, has a vested interest in ensuring the security and protection of its territorial waters.

This requires the use of modern and efficient naval vessels equipped with state-of-the-art technology like Navantia IPMS.

The TCG Anadolu IPMS serves as the nerve centre of the ship, providing real-time monitoring, control, and automation of critical onboard systems. Developed by Navantia, offers a comprehensive and efficient solution for managing and controlling various onboard systems.

TCG Anadolu IPMS is built using state-of-the-art technologies and adheres to the highest standards of reliability, security, and safety.

The system is designed with Commercial Of The Shelf (COTS) components and redundant systems to ensure uninterrupted performance.

The IPMS includes a wide range of functionality managing almost 60.000 platform signals, covering areas such as propulsion, electrical systems, auxiliary systems, fire detection and suppression, damage control, and environmental control.

IPMS provides real-time monitoring of these systems, allowing the ship's crew to quickly identify and rectify any faults or malfunctions. As well, includes intelligent alarm systems and fault diagnostics capabilities, enabling rapid response and minimizing downtime.

One of its key advantages is its advanced automation capabilities. It can be programmed to automate routine tasks and processes, reducing the workload on the ship's crew, and allowing them to focus on more critical operations.

The automation capabilities also enhance safety by reducing the risk of human error and fatigue-related accidents.

Navantia IPMS for the TCG Anadolu includes an on-board simulator for the training of the crew in the operation and maintenance of the equipment and systems that make up the platform, the On-Board training System (OBTS).

The simulation consists basically in emulating or representing a series of events or environment through a system that enables the user to participate and which is able to respond to the inputs coherently, according to a certain model of the simulated environment.

Simulation also includes some pieces of equipment that cannot be operated from the IPMS, such as the local operation panels, making them accessible from the virtual world

The IPMS and OBTS systems may coexist and work concurrently on the ship and IPMS consoles. OBTS reuses the HMI, thus the trainee will basically make use of identical tools in the simulated and real environments. Hence, as for a simulated training, the simulator might be classified as a live and high-fidelity simulator.

Looking ahead, the future of Navantia IPMS in Türkiye holds tremendous potential for further growth and collaboration. Navantia has been a key partner in the development and implementation of the TCG Anadolu IPMS.

Leveraging their expertise and experience, Navantia has contributed significantly to the success of this project.

Collaboration between Türkiye and Navantia in the field of IPMS can be a catalyst for further advancements in Türkiye's naval capabilities. It can foster technology transfer, innovation, and joint research and development initiatives.

Türkiye's shipbuilding companies can leverage Navantia's know-how to enhance their own capabilities, thereby boosting local expertise and competitiveness. Additionally, Navantia IPMS can be customized and adapted to Türkiye's specific requirements, thus ensuring the system's compatibility with Türkiye's existing and future naval platforms.

Moreover, the future of Navantia IPMS in Türkiye extends beyond domestic projects. With Navantia's established global presence, Türkiye can tap into international markets and expand its reach in the naval industry.

The successful implementation and performance of the TCG Anadolu IPMS can serve as a strong reference and showcase Türkiye's capabilities to potential international clients. Collaboration between Türkiye and Navantia can lead to joint ventures, export opportunities, and technology sharing, contributing to Türkiye's economic growth and industrial development.
