Sperry Marine won contracts from Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft AG (HDW) and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Heavy Machinery to supply a complete "Vision" integrated bridge for six containerships under construction for Oakland, Calif. - based American President Lines (APL). Each ship's integrated bridge will consist of a VMS NT, SeaNET network with workstation, conning information display, dual Sperry Marine 3400M RASCAR II radar/ ARPAs, 421/S two-axis speed log, dual configuration ADG-3000 autopilot and other navigation sensors.

According to Sperry Marine's president and CEO, George A.

"These new APL containerships represent the first of a new generation of post-Panamax ships and will be the largest of their kind in the world. The APL decision to entrust to Sperry Marine the integrated bridge system is most gratifying..." said Mr. Sawyer.
