Litton Marine Systems will supply integrated bridge systems
(IBS) for two new cruise
ships for Royal Caribbean International (RCI).
The two vessels are currently under construction at Meyer Werft Shipyard
in Papenburg. Radiance of the Seas, will be delivered in early 2001, with the second vessel scheduled to arrive during the second half of 2002.
In accordance with Royal Caribbean's two-bridge concept, each vessel will house a completely redundant package comprised of two independent Vision 2100 integrated bridge systems
. The total package will include interswitched BridgeMaster E S-band and X-band radars, a Sperry Marine Voyage Management System (VMS) with ECDIS and a docking system
Litton also supplied the IBS installations for RCI's Eagle-class ships, the first being Voyager of the Seas delivered late last year.
