DEML Speed Log Contracted for New Arleigh Burke Destroyer Class

Norfolk, VA: W R Systems, Ltd. (WRSystems), a systems engineering firm in Norfolk, Virginia, has won a nearly $2 million contract from Bath Iron Works to provide speed log systems and services for U.S. Navy ships. Based in Bath, Maine and a General Dynamics subsidiary, Bath Iron Works is a major American shipyard that manufactures vessels for the military, commercial and private sectors. The company has ordered the speed log systems for the restart of the Arleigh Burke destroyer class, which features new construction hulls.

WRSystems’ Digital Electro-Magnetic Log (DEML) speed log system incorporates electro-magnetic sensor technology. It provides an accurate and reliable source of a ship’s speed and allows the Navy to maintain a common baseline throughout the fleet. WRSystems previously sold 17 DEML systems to Bath Iron Works and Northrop Grumman for use on Navy ships.

“We’re all very pleased the private sector and military rely on the DEML system and we will continue to meet our customer’s requirements with this system and next-generation technologies,” says Dave Edwards, Senior Vice President and Director of WRSystems’ Engineering Services Division in Norfolk.
