Northrop Grumman to supply Integrated Bridge Systems to Sweden
Northrop Grumman has announced that its Sperry Marine business unit is supplying advanced integrated bridge systems (IBS) for the new class of patrol boats being built for the Swedish Coast Guard. The company announced the contract 25 May, 2012.
According to the company, the IBS for the new Swedish patrol boats is based on Northrop Grumman's advanced VisionMaster FT technology, which integrates the vessels' navigation and ship control functions in a secure and redundant Ethernet network. Each vessel will be equipped with three Sperry Marine TotalWatch multifunction workstations, which include electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS), navigational radars, GPS positioning, autopilot, steering control and conning information. Northrop Grumman is also supplying the voyage data recorders (VDR) for the ships.
Northrop Grumman said the contract includes five new vessels. Built by Baltic Workboats AS in Estonia, the first vessel was recently delivered to the Swedish Coast Guard. CA Clase Marinelektronik AB, Northrop Grumman's sales and service representative in Sweden, is providing technical support to the Swedish Coast Guard for the project. The 24-metre aluminium patrol boats will be used by the Swedish Coast Guard for multi-mission tasks such as sea rescue and border control.
