Integrated Platform Management System (IPMS)

With marine naval design becoming more sophisticated, and more capability being integrated with fewer people on board, only proven designs and software functionality can truly meet the demands within modern project time scales and risk profiles. As world experts in the field of integration, we introduce mtu NautIQ Master, the latest evolution of our powerful IPMS solution, allowing more COTS  (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) product integration. It is a true System of Systems capable platform.

This powerful mix of mtu NautIQ Master distributed processing and highly redundant architecture, coupled to industry standard equipment and protocols allows for a truly supportable platform, with minimal obsolescence risk. This reduces platform cost, integration time and commissioning / installation issues, whilst retaining the survivability and power of the original mtu NautIQ Master, with its scalability and flexibility in terms of system architecture.

mtu NautIQ Master – IPMS incorporates


The Propulsion Control System (PCS) sits on a separate network that can be fully integrated into the IPMS. It accommodates all propulsion configurations including gas turbine, diesel and electric drives. Fixed and Controllable Pitch Propeller (CPP) shaft arrangements as well as Azimuth pods can be accommodated.


Remote monitoring of electrical systems, generators & switchboards with automatic management of load requirements, black out starts and duty set rotation. Advanced integration of propulsion system.


Remote or automated operation of ventilation and extraction systems, maintenance of ambient atmosphere for comfort and life preservation Integration into damage control system.


Monitoring and management of fluid systems such as fuel, lub-oil, cooling systems, ballast, bilges, aircraft refuelling and fire systems. Integration into damage control system.

Damage Control:

Graphical presentation of safety systems with remote or automated operation of hatch, door and ventilation closure; extraction systems; bilge and flood control; fire fighting systems; fire suppression systems; and resource deployment.

Resilient Networks:

Dual redundant networking of alternative architectures to meet specific customer requirements, including ARCNET or Ethernet over standard cable or managed fibre optic arrangements.


Sophisticated training simulation that makes use of ship trial data or pre-defined scenarios on selected workstations. Work stations utilise replica mimic sets without the need to create an alternative software programme and run with actual ship data.

Lloyd’s  Award for Software Innovation

Information to the right place defines survival, safe operation, efficiency and ability to respond. WINMON™ is the tool that combines a Tile Layered Graphic approach for simplified information presentation.

A user friendly interface for operation and maintenance places the package ahead of its rivals. Together with the flexibility to integrate third party software packages, the system develops into a comprehensive ship management tool.

Special missions of a service nomad

by Lucie Maluck

It took just 4 ½ weeks for Melik Meddur and his team to perform a major overhaul of the three Series 8000 units powering the ferry HSC Condor Liberation, operated by British operator Condor Ferries. They did the job with the engines in-situ, i.e. in the engine room itself. Quite a feat, but by no means a premiere for Melik. So what's life like for him as a Rolls-Royce 'service nomad'?
