Sperry INBS for New Aircraft Carrier

Thursday, December 13, 2007
Northrop Grumman Corporation was selected to provide a new-generation integrated navigation and bridge system (INBS) for the UK Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) Future Aircraft Carrier (CVF) project. The initial INBS design-phase contract was awarded to Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine business unit by the Aircraft Carrier Alliance, the industrial alliance that, in the manufacture phase of the project, will include the planned Joint Venture between VT Group and BAES (including BAES Marine and BAES Integrated System Technologies), Babcock Support Services Ltd, Thales Naval and MOD. The INBS will be based on Sperry Marine’s VisionMaster FT technology and will bring together all of the ships’ navigation sensors and systems into a modern, efficient, ergonomic bridge to meet operational requirements.
