Avrora JSC - Control systems for surface ships

Avrora Scientific and Production Association JSC is a leading enterprise of the industry in development and supply of automated control systems for surface ships (ACS SS).

The new generation Avrora ACS SS is a microprocessor-based distributed (decentralized) network control system that comprises, as a rule, an integrated bridge system (IBS), general ship data exchange system (GSDES) and integrated hardware control system (IHCS):

  • IBS is intended for improving quality and effectiveness of ship control and ship armament control;
  • GSDES is intended for ensuring information exchange between the complexes and systems on board the ship;
  • IHCS is intended
    • for ensuring control of the ship main propulsion plant;
    • for ensuring control of ship electric power plant, including control of electric power sources and electric power distribution facilities;
    • for ensuring control of general ship’s systems, including facilities providing damage control, ventilation systems, auxiliary mechanisms, fuel-oil, lubrication oil or water pumping systems, and other general ship’s systems, as well as monitoring the level of flooding the compartments;
    • for ensuring motion control;
    • for ensuring control of fin stabilizers;
    • for information support of the personnel under the normal conditions during control of the hardware operating in accordance with its direct purpose, during damage control in case of fire and flooding, in case of hardware breakdown, as well as for automatic records keeping;
    • for data exchange between the control consoles (CC), local technological stations (LTS), local control systems (LCS) that are included in the integrated hardware control system (IHCS);
    • for ensuring uninterrupted power supply of the system equipment in case of short-time power supply interruptions.

Each of the mentioned groups of functions is implemented by a set of devices that form a hardware control system (CS), data exchange system, information support system and uninterrupted power supply system.

A set of CS, as well as data exchange system, information support system and uninterrupted power supply system form an IHCS of a surface ship.

The equipment base of the functional complex control systems is formed by the microprocessor hardware, multi-functional display facilities of LCD type, panel stations, various display and commands entering facilities that are located on the console.

Each functional complex control system (MPP, EPS, GSS, MCS, DES) comprises a multifunctional control console.

Avrora JSC - The multifunctional control consoleThe multifunctional control console (CC) is intended for:

  • information presentation on the display facilities;
  • entering and processing operator’s commands;
  • transmission of commands to control consoles of other systems, LTS, LCS;
  • data exchange channel (network) control;
  • reception and processing information from the LTS, LCS.

The control systems of the functional complexes (MPP, EPS, GSS) comprise the local technological stations.

The control systems of the MPP and MCS functional complexes interact with the local control systems.

The local control systems (LCS) operating under control of processors implement the following functions as per the algorithms:

  • information representation on the display facilities;
  • backup control of objects under control;
  • acquisition, processing and storage of the information about the object;
  • information transmission to the control consoles of the functional complexes.

The local technological stations (LTS) operating under the control of the processors implement the following functions according to the control algorithms:

  • backup control of objects under control;
  • acquisition, processing and storage of the information about the object;
  • information transmission to the control consoles of the functional complexes.

Integration of the CS into the IHCS is performed by connection of CC, LST and LCS into the quick-response duplicated and redundant data exchange system of the Ethernet-type data transmission network.

The consoles of all the control systems are of the unified design and they constitute two console sections that are located on the same foundation and duplicate and backup each other both in the functional and in the hardware respect.

Avrora JSC - ConsoleEach section may contain two liquid-crystal monitors or two panel stations, or a liquid-crystal monitor and a panel station, as well as a keyboard, a manipulator, processor modules and communication modules for providing transmission (reception) of commands (information) via the IHCS data exchange system.

The local control systems and the local technological stations are also made on the basis of the unified basic structures that ensure accommodation of carcass crates with a trunk line (VME-bus), a power source, a ventilation system, processor modules and information input/output modules.

Avrora IHCS of surface ships built on the basis of new technologies implementation (information, structural, network, hardware and software technologies) find an application on board the new-generation frigate- and corvette-class ships and on board of other ships of various classes and purposes.
