Contract Award- Northrop Grumman – Navy

The US Navy has awarded Northrop Grumman a contract to upgrade three Cyclone class patrol craft. The contract requires Northrop Grumman to upgrade the navigational systems for the patrol craft and was awarded to Sperry Marine business unit.

Under the contract, Northrop Grumman will provide upgrades consisting of an integrated bridge system that runs Voyage Management Software. Northrop Grumman will provide support services for the installation process as well.

J. Nolasco DaCunha, VP of the Sperry Marine unit, said “The patrol craft bridge upgrades will give the 1990s-era patrol craft the same navigation technology that is standardized across the rest of the U.S. Navy fleet. They will provide improved situational awareness and enhanced navigation safety for the ships’ watchstanders, giving them a real-time, constantly updated picture of the ship’s position and movement relative to navigation aids and hazards on a large high-resolution screen.”
