Northrop Grumman
: 20 April, 2009  (New Product)
Northrop Grumman Corporation’s Sperry Marine business unit announces the introduction of a new family of navigation radar sets with enhanced naval display features.
“We are now offering a naval display version of our highly successful commercial VisionMaster FT™ series of navigation radars, providing extended capabilities to meet the specific requirements of naval ships,” said J. Nolasco DaCunha, vice president of Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine. “We have retained the outstanding capabilities of the commercial radars while incorporating important new features for the naval sector. The open-architecture design of the VisionMaster FT product line permits easy upgrades without making hardware changes.”



New features incorporated into the VisionMaster FT naval display radars include red first strike for immediate identification of high-speed targets, Helicopter approach sectors, freeze frame function for radio silence, station keeping, target intercept, advanced index lines and other functions to support modern naval operations. It can be integrated with scanner systems operating at very low rotating speeds, down to 5 rpm.



The VisionMaster FT naval radar display systems are available in 340 millimeters and 250 millimeters, X-band and S-band models in dedicated consoles or for built-in installations with remote electronics. The units utilize state-of-the-art high-resolution flat-screen display technology. They are designed to serve as stand-alone radars or as part of a complete VisionMaster FT integrated bridge system.



Like all VisionMaster FT commercial radars, the naval display versions incorporate Sperry Marine’s advanced automatic clutter-suppression technology, ensuring that weak targets can be detected under poor weather conditions or in close proximity to land.
