Northrop Grumman
: 15 March, 2010  (Application Story)
Integrated bridge systems from Sperry Marine to be supplied to Italian ship-builder for use in double-hulled tankers ordered for the Indian Navy’s fleet
Northrop Grumman has been selected to supply integrated bridge systems (IBS) for two new fleet tankers being built in Italy for the Indian navy.

The IBS orders were placed with Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine unit by the Italian shipbuilding company Fincantieri, which is under contract to build the two tankers at its shipyards in Liguria and Palermo. Terms of the contract for the IBS were not disclosed.

Each of the ships will be fitted with a complete Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT IBS, including radars, electronic chart display and information systems, adaptive self-tuning autopilots, gyrocompasses and repeaters, speed sensors, echosounders, differential GPS and other navigation subsystems and sensors. All critical systems have been duplicated for built-in redundancy and survivability. Sperry Marine will also supply the ship’s inertial navigation system and data distribution system, which will be interfaced with the combat management system.

Compagnia Generali Telemar, Sperry Marine’s sales and service representative in Italy, will be responsible for the installing, commissioning, testing and technical support for the project.

“This important contract win builds on our longstanding relationship as a key supplier to the Indian navy,” said Nolasco DaCunha, vice president of International Naval Systems at Northrop Grumman’s Naval and Marine Systems Division. “We are especially pleased to have this opportunity to work with Fincantieri on this major naval shipbuilding program.”

The 175-meter tankers are being built with double hulls to meet the International Maritime Organization’s requirements for marine pollution control. They are scheduled for delivery to the Indian navy in 2010-2011.

Northrop Grumman has a well-established relationship with India that spans more than 25 years and has an office in New Delhi.
