Furuno Awarded $11M USCG Contract

Friday, November 01, 2002
Furuno USA, Inc. has been awarded a multi-year $11M U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) contract for replacement of the aging radar systems on all Coast Guard 41-foot patrol and rescue boats. The contract for the Scalable Integrated Navigation System (SINS) ensures delivery of robust, reliable Furuno electronics for the US Coast Guard. Each patrol and rescue boat will have a high-tech integrated navigation system based on Furuno’s NavNet to make these boats state-of-the-art. Built around Furuno’s revolutionary NavNet radar/chart plotter system, the SINS package seamlessly integrates a 1933C radar/chart plotter, GP37 GPS/WAAS, and RD30 digital depth display with a 235 kHz Smart Sensor. All of the information can be viewed on the daylight-viewable 10.4” LCD display of the 1933C and the GP37 and RD30 can display their respective information. Additional NavNet displays may be connected using the Ethernet network feature of the NavNet line. Many USCG boats will receive a basic SINS package and other displays, which can be fully customized to an individual operator’s needs. The scalable nature of the equipment ensures the opportunity for growth of the SINS concept, and is capable of responding to virtually all Coast Guard requirements for boats of any size or length.
