C.N.S. Systems AB was formed in December 1999, by people with extensive experience in development, marketing, contracting and project management in the Swedish high technology aviation related industry. In 2008, CNS Systems AB acquired International Communications and Navigation Ltd. (ICAN) of Canada and its USA based subsidiary International Communications and Navigation Inc.
ICAN is a Software Development and Systems Integration company that provides sophisticated vessel navigation and communications software, as well as, Surveillance and Tactical Information Systems, AIS Applications and Infrastructure, consulting and system design services.
The combined knowledge of C.N.S. Systems AB and ICAN makes it possible to serve any AIS requirement and to broaden the offer in the Communication, Navigation and Surveillance area. Today the two companies are successfully united under the common name, CNS Systems.
CNS Systems is owned by the management, a group of private placements. The solid ownership supports the company´s expansion on the global market, and provides financial strength and security for larger projects.
