Ultra CCS has been awarded a contract amendment by the UK MoD for Phase 1 of the technology refresh of the PDM2 system fitted to the RN Type 23 Frigate. This is a design definition and demonstration phase and is expected to proceed to full implementation.. The Platform Data Manager Type 2 system monitors, normalises and distributes all platform data around the Type 23 Frigate. The PDM family of systems has been around in a number of variants for nearly 30 years It has been superseded by the COTS based SDDS system that Ultra now supplies on a number of modern platforms. Aspects of the SDDS technology are being used to refresh PDM2 while extending system life and minimising through life costs. Supporting aging and obsolete electronics is a particular expertise of the company. We also have extensive knowledge of naval platform data distribution systems, particularly redundancy and latency requirements.
