Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine will be using the Seatrade Europe event to showcase its next generation of vessel safety, navigation data and information systems targeted at the cruise shipping sector.

Among the products to be showcased is the Seatrade Award-winning VisionMaster Net, Sperry Marine’s first bridge radar to securely connect ship navigation systems to the wider vessel network and to the shore. Ship operators can use the system to access bridge radar information from locations around the vessel and securely transfer data to the shoreside for remote support and assistance.

Sperry will be revealing details of its latest high resolution radar system, SeaGuard, for operators of very large cruise ships. Originally designed as a naval surveillance radar capable of identifying small targets in water, SeaGuard scans for targets almost simultaneously across six different frequencies.

“Sperry Marine is proud to include some of the industry’s most innovative operators as long term clients and we are supporting them with a range of products and services that move the navigation bridge into the digital, connected era,” said Pascal Göllnitz, Product Manager, Integrated Bridge Systems, Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine. “That increasingly means sharing data with stakeholders around the vessel and on shore, to support voyage and service decisions, driving safety and efficiency.”

Sperry Marine is upgrading its heading management system, CompassNet. Version 1.2 provides owners with the ability to interface multiple compasses into one digital management system, and to integrate third party compass equipment into CompassNet to create an open platform for heading management, with the additional advantage that operators only need to provide training for crew on a single system.
