Litton Marine Systems announced that Det Norske Veritas (DNV) has granted type approval for the Vision 2100
ECDIS. The DNV type approval certifies that the Litton ECDIS complies with international specifications including that of IMO A.817 (19) and IEC 61174. "This is the first ECDIS to be type approved by DNV," stated J. Nolasco DaCunha
, vice president, sales and service. "We appreciate the support provided by SevenCs (Germany), our technical partner in achieving this milestone. The Litton system is also the first to meet the specific DNV requirements for full electronic backup for the ECDIS installation." "We are proud to be the first to receive DNV type approval," said DaCunha. "This is a continuation of the excellent working relationship between our company and DNV dating back many years. We were also the first IBS supplier to receive DNV Watch One certification back early in 1990's," he said.
