Northrop Grumman's Sperry Marine business unit provided a fully networked suite of scalable navigation products from the VisionMaster FT
™ series, used to form the core of a ship's integrated bridge.
Stena Superfast VII and
Stena Superfast VIII vessels were upgraded with VisionMaster FT
™ navigation radars, a voyage data recorder, and an electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) that provides full control on both bridge wings. Meanwhile, the
Stena Europe and
Stena Adventurer were outfitted with the VisionMaster FT
™ ECDIS, which meets the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) regulations for paperless navigation while providing a separate, redundant backup station in case the primary ECDIS navigation station is damaged or disrupted.
"Our highly reliable, flexible navigation solution provides leading edge situational awareness capabilities and improvements in radar performance to enhance the ships' safety at sea," said
Alan Dix, managing director of Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine. "Additionally, it ensures compliance with new carriage requirements for greater navigational safety standards as set out by the IMO."
In addition to equipment, Northrop Grumman provided installation and training on the VisionMaster FT
™ products. The company's customized, modular solution enables a high level of integration with the ships' current systems.
Stena Line operates ferries on 22 routes in Scandinavia, around the U.K. and to the Baltic countries. The company has a modern fleet of 38 vessels, including fast ferries, traditional combi-ferries, RoPax ferries for freight and passengers, and pure cargo ships.
