Dual Radar Configuration For Naval Radar Displays


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Northrop Grumman
: 02 June, 2010  (New Product)
Marine Navigation Radar Systems now gain dual-radar input and target tracking capability of up to 600 knots
Northrop Grumman announces the introduction of new naval display features for its marine navigation radar systems.

The new naval display options, now available with Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT series of naval radars, includes dual-radar input, 600-knot target tracking capability, CCTV interface and stabilized sector transmission.

The dual-radar configuration permits inputs from two separate asynchronous radar units to be shown on a single integrated display. By combining inputs from separate X (I)-band and S (E/F)-band radars, a 360-degree picture can be presented to reveal nearby and far-off targets, and eliminate blind arcs. The radar operator can track targets from both radars in the usual way, with the inputs correlated to provide a single target on the screen.

Other features standard in the VisionMaster FT naval radar systems include red first strike for identifying fast-moving targets, Helicopter approach sectors, freeze frame for periods of radar silence, station keeping, index lines and target intercept.

“Sperry Marine’s BridgeMaster and VisionMaster FT series radar systems are specified as standard shipboard equipment for more than 60 navies and coast guards around the world,” said Nolasco DaCunha, vice president of Naval Systems International at Northrop Grumman’s Naval and Marine Systems Division. “These new enhancements will improve situational awareness and optimize operational effectiveness to satisfy the mission requirements for all classes of naval vessels.”

Northrop Grumman’s Naval and Marine Systems Division, headquartered in Charlottesville and with major engineering and support offices in New Malden, United Kingdom and Hamburg, Germany, provides smart navigation and ship control solutions for the international marine industry with customer service and support through offices in 16 countries, sales representatives in 47 countries and authorized service depots in more than 250 locations worldwide.
