Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) has supplied the electronic navigation systems for the Greek cruise ship MV Aegean Odyssey, which has recently completed a major refurbishment.
The ship’s bridge has been refitted with a complete navigation package based on Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT™ technology. The scope of supply includes radars, electronic chart display and information system, gyrocompass, autopilot, ship steering system and other sensors.
SRH Marine Electronics S.A., Northrop Grumman’s sales and service agent in Greece, was responsible for installation, commissioning, testing and technical support, as well as operator training.
