The abbreviation FMS stands for the Fleet Management Systems. Such system is mission critical 24x265 and is generally a computer system consisting of one or more LITP and one or more SITP, which are the land-based and shipboard information technology platforms, correspondingly. The SITP enables multiple computers on board the ship to share the data and to communicate with the other ships or with the shore base.
The SITP itself consists of several components, such as the hardware, software, data repository, procedures providing the ability to store and transfer data.
