Racal-Decca Integrated Bridges For Saudi VLCCs

The National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia chose the Racal- Decca MIRANS 4600 integrated bridge system for its five new VLCCs being built in Japan at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. The 300,000-ton double hulled tankers are being built to comply with OPA 90. The contract was signed between Mitsubishi and SENA, Racal-Decca's agent in Japan. At the heart of each MIRANS 4600 is the ChartMaster electronic chart system, which has been designed to be upgraded to ECDIS when ECDIS charts become available.

Racal-Decca Marine was chosen to supply the Royal Navy with a second navigational radar for use on some frigates and destroyers. The contract is to supply type 1008 radars operating in the E/F band, units which complement the existing mandatory I band navigation.

The type 1008 radars will be fitted with Autotrack and Geographies facilities, features which allow operators to create on-screen maps which can be used to display special features such as navigation marks, hazards, traffic separation schemes, minefields, etc.
