BAE Systems to Upgrade Its Maritime Integration & Support Center

BAE Systems has announced a £10 million investment program to upgrade its Maritime Integration & Support Center (MISC) in Portsmouth - a specialist facility providing vital support for Royal Navy warships whilst researching future combat systems and technologies.

Located on Portsdown Hill and shaped like a Type 45 destroyer, the MISC is a unique facility that accurately replicates real-life ship conditions using the same combat system technology found across the Royal Navy’s surface fleet – including systems used to track threats, co-ordinate weapons and manage on-deck aircraft movements. The facility enables highly skilled engineers to develop and test key elements of combat systems before they are installed on ships and, once in service, provide them with through-life support.

1434588007498Supporting the development of future combat systems, BAE Systems’ £10 million investment program will research new technologies such as artificial intelligence, information and electronic warfare, unmanned vehicles and new weapons.

The MISC will benefit from new facilities including a state of the art visualization suite able to display live tactical data from any Royal Navy warship anywhere in the world, further enhancing warship support. The pioneering technology will provide BAE Systems’ Naval Combat Systems Integration Support Services (NCSISS) engineers with all the information they need to keep ships battle ready and support them in their deployments.
