Northrop Grumman Corporation’s (NYSE: NOC) Sperry Marine business unit is supplying a complete suite of electronic navigation systems for a new megayacht being constructed in Italy.

The 142-foot (43-meter) motoryacht, which is being built for a private owner at the Baglietto Shipyard in La Spezia, will be equipped with an integrated bridge system (IBS) based on Sperry Marine’s new-generation VisionMaster FT™ technology. The scope of supply will include X- and S-band radars, electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS), TotalWatch™ multi-function workstation, gyrocompass, autopilot, steering system and other navigation sensors.

Telemar Yachting, Sperry Marine’s authorized representative in Italy, will oversee the design, installation, integration and commissioning of the bridge systems.

The VisionMaster FT family of products was introduced by Sperry Marine last year to provide an integrated suite of navigation systems, improving situational awareness for bridge watch officers and enhancing safety at sea. The scalable suite of products includes marine radars, chart radars, ECDIS, machine automation and alarms, conning displays and TotalWatch multi-function workstations.
