The Mechtronix-engineered technology will provide L-3 MAPPS, a supplier of ship control systems to the Canadian Navy, with solutions to support the officers and decision-makers in carrying out their duties, reveals a representative. It will aid damage control teams to better manage emergency situations ranging from fire, flood, and smoke to radiation and chemical hazard protection.
