Sperry navigation systems for Fast Patrol Boats for Trinidad and Tobago

Northrop Grumman Corporation, based in Charlottesville, has been selected to supply integrated bridge systems (IBS) for six fast patrol craft being built by Austal Shipyards in Australia for the government of Trinidad and Tobago.


Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine business unit will supply the equipment, which will be installed and commissioned by Electrotech Australia Pty Ltd.

The IBS will be based on Sperry Marine’s new-generation VisionMaster FT™ technology. The scope of supply includes radars, electronic chart display and information system, high-speed autopilot, heading and speed sensors, echosounder, DGPS receiver and voyage data recorder.

All six vessels are constructed at Austal's facilities in Henderson, Western Australia, and are scheduled for delivery in 2010.
