Sperry Marine Earns Type Approval for MAISTRO

Friday, March 19, 2004
Northrop Grumman Corporation's Sperry Marine business unit has been awarded type approval from the Norwegian classification society Det Norske Veritas for its shipboard Machinery Automation and Integrated Ship Control Solution (MAISTRO). MAISTRO has been developed by Sperry Marine to provide a fully integrated machinery control, monitoring and automation solution that can be configured for virtually any size, type or class of vessel. MAISTRO is based on commercial off-the-shelf hardware with specially designed software modules to provide a cost-effective, flexible and efficient solution that can be adapted to any ship’s requirements. The system front end, using Windows-based technology for screen navigation, provides an instinctive user-friendly design that minimizes training and reduces operator workload and the associated costs. The key feature of the MAISTRO system is the scalability it offers to meet the requirements of different vessels and owners. The open-architecture network-based solution can be integrated with a wide variety of subsystems. The basic MAISTRO configuration provides integrated monitoring and alarms for the ship's main propulsion system, but more advanced versions include fully integrated automatic control of propulsion, power management and ship systems. MAISTRO can also be integrated with other systems such as ship safety, CCTV and bridge control.
