Northrop Grumman Corporation has recently supplied its electronic navigation systems the recently refurbished Greek cruise ship, MV Aegean Odyssey.
The Odyssey’s bridge is refitted with a total navigation package based on the Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT technology of Northrop Grumman. The supply’s scope encompasses various sensors, radars, ship steering system, electronic information and chart display system, autopilot and gyrocompass.
The sales and service agent of Northrop Grumman in Greece, SRH Marine Electronics, was responsible for installing, testing, commissioning, operator training and technical support.
The premium-class Greek ship is under the operational control of Voyages to Antiquity in Piraeus. The ship offers cruise itineraries in the central and eastern Mediterranean’s coastal waters.
The 461-foot ship is able to carry a maximum of 200 crew members and 388 passengers. The refitting of the ship complies with Lloyd's Register classification requirements. The ship will sail for the cruise under the Maltese flag.
J. Nolasco DaCunha, VP of Naval Systems International’s Naval and Marine Systems Division, informed that the ‘Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT systems’ offer inherent flexibility and established technology for meeting the efficient and safe requirements of the ship cost-effectively.
