More Combat Boats Success For Transas Scandinavia

Wednesday, September 05, 2001
Transas Scandinavia has received an order to supply an extensive range of advanced navigational equipment to 27 units of the Swedish Defense CombatBoat-90 project. This will be the last batch of more than 160 fast boats constructed for the Swedish Amphibious Forces.

The vessels will be specially equipped for U.N. peace-keeping operations and the Transas Navi-Sailor 2500 system interfaced with dedicated equipment for encrypted radio communication (PC-DART), will be one of the most vital systems onboard the craft.

According to the contract terms, specifically for this project Transas Scandinavia AB will develop and install an integrated system, called NAVSYSTEM 3000, designated for use by the pilot (helmsman) and co-pilot (navigator). This solution will include Transas Marine's Navi-Sailor 2500 navigational software and Litton's Bridgemaster-E radar in the black box version.

Production and assembly of the rack cable connectors and Navsystem 3000 will occur at Transas' Gothenburg facility, with deliveries occurring from December 2001 through January 2003.

The delivery set also contains a wide range of other navigational aids and equipment from leading manufacturers. In addition, Transas Scandinavia will manufacture and supply a 19-in. solid rack-unit capable of withstanding vibration, chock electromagnetic distortion and other forces. The unit will also be integrated with the navigation processor and will provide interfaces to all the navigation signals, video distribution, GPS Black box receiver. The system will be highly compact and easy to maintain, thanks to the favourable location of cable connections at the front. In the future, an AIS (Automatic Identification System) can be connected to the NAVSYSTEM 3000.
