Northrop Grumman Corporation will highlight its capabilities in command, control, communications, computers, intelligence (C4I), border security, unmanned ground systems, cyber security as well as navigation and maritime systems at the Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition in London.
DSEI is the world's largest fully integrated defence and security event specialising in air, naval, land and unmanned systems and brings together international exhibitors from more than 50 countries. The exhibition takes place at ExCel in London from 10– 13 Sept. 2013. Northrop Grumman will be exhibiting in the South Hall at stand number S5-310.
Amonst other products, a range of the company's marine systems will be highlighted in the exhibit: Northrop Grumman's Sperry Marine business unit will display a selection of marine navigation, ship control and coastal surveillance solutions including the VisionMaster FT Integrated Bridge and Platform Management System. The VisionMaster FT Integrated Bridge System with the Warship Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (WECDIS) solution has been selected by the Royal Navy for the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers.
Northrop Grumman's Maritime Systems business unit will feature the Mod 4 version of the MK 39 ring laser ship's inertial navigation system and the Navigation Data Distribution System (NAVDDS). The MK 39 delivers both high accuracy geographic position information with or without GPS, as well as precise attitude and heading data for fire control stabilization and weapons initialization, while the NAVDDS provides the network backbone which integrates inertial navigation system data with other shipboard sensors and systems. Northrop Grumman is a leading provider of naval gyrocompasses and inertial navigation systems.
The AQS-24A high-speed mine-hunting system, towed from the MH-53E and MCH-101 helicopters and Unmanned Surface Vessels, will be highlighted. The AQS-24A and its predecessors systems, AQS-24 and the AQS-14, are the only operational airborne mine-hunting search systems used by the U.S. Navy for the past 29 years.
