GPS has won orders to supply high-precision marine DGPS receivers for four new Hellenic Navy gunboats
Each of the gunboats will be fitted with a Leica MX 420/8 DGPS receiver, which will be used as the primary navigation aid. The MX 420/8 will be interfaced with other bridge equipment, including the BridgeMaster E navigation radars
, DSC radio, central clock system and gyrocompass. The contract includes options for two more gunboats.
The equipment will be installed and commissioned by Radio Marine Electronics, the Greek sales and service agent for Leica Marine GPS.
The four new gunboats
are being built at the Hellenic Shipyard Co., in Skaramanga, with the first scheduled delivery in mid-2002.
