Sperry Marine to Equip INS for Canadian Navy Ships and Subs

Wednesday, June 27, 2007
Northrop Grumman Corporation has been awarded two contracts from the Public Works and Government Services Canada and the Canadian Department of National Defence to upgrade and provide in-service support for the inertial navigation systems (INS) on Canadian Navy ships and submarines.

The firm fixed price contracts, totaling $15.9m, were awarded to Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine business unit. They include an $11.8m contract to supply navigation data distribution systems (NDDS) for the MK49 INS on 12 Halifax-class frigates, and a separate five-year $4.1 million in-service support (ISS) contract for MK49, MK39 and NDDS installations throughout the Canadian Navy fleet.

The ISS contract includes spares management, onboard service and technical support for the installed systems on the Halifax-class frigates, Iroquois-class destroyers, Victoria-class submarines and Protecteur-class supply ships. Sperry Marine will maintain a depot inventory of readily available spares for all critical components in the INS and NDDS installations.
