Corporate consolidations have, in the last 10 years, effectively consumed a number of "household" brand names as efforts were made to streamline the acquirer's letterhead. In a reversal, of sorts, Northrop Grumman Corporation gave a rebirth to a well-respected name in the marine business, saying that its marine systems business unit has been renamed Sperry Marine, effective immediately. Formerly Litton Marine, this commercial and defense-related marine electronics business was acquired by Northrop Grumman in its purchase of Litton Industries Inc., last year. Sperry Marine remains a business unit of the Baltimore, Md.-based Electronic Systems sector of Northrop Grumman. George Perkins, vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman's Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance and Naval Systems, Division said, "Sperry Marine is a highly respected brand name that is recognized throughout the marine electronics industry worldwide. Its lineage dates to 1910, when Elmer Sperry invented the first marine gyrocompass." Sperry Marine provides navigation solutions for the international marine industry under the Sperry Marine, Decca and C. Plath brand names, with customer service and support through offices in 19 countries and authorized service depots in more than 300 locations worldwide.
