Sperry Marine has won contracts to build bridge-navigation systems for three new carriers for an Italian shipping company.
Sperry Marine, a division of Northrop Grumman Corp., will build the navigation systems for the 176,000-deadweight ton ships for Italy-based Deiulemar Shipping at a shipyard in Jiangsu, China. The ships are due for delivery by 2011.
Each of the ships will be fitted with Sperry Marine's VisionMaster FT S- and X-band radar, gyrocompass, autopilot, steering control, voyage-data recorder and other navigation components.
Sperry Marine is a business unit of Northrop Grumman's Naval and Marine Systems Division. It is headquartered in Charlottesville with major engineering and support offices in Great Britain and Germany.
