Northrop Grumman navigation radars for enviro ship


Northrop Grumman Corporation has received orders to supply navigation radars for a new ship being built for the Norwegian environmental organisation, Green Warriors.

The Green Warriors’ ship, M/V “Miljødronningen”, will be fitted with two VisionMaster FT radars supplied by Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine business unit. The radars will be integrated with the vessel’s electronic chart display and information system and voyage data recorder, and will provide the conference room with live information from the bridge operation.

“Miljødronningen” will serve as a floating conference centre and environmental surveillance platform. It will also conduct a variety of subsea environmental research studies and serve as a floating ‘green laboratory’ for demonstrating environmentally-friendly solutions in materials and construction. The 33.9m (108ft) catamaran is being built at the Fjellstrand shipyard in Hardanger and is scheduled to be delivered in September 2007. It is designed for operation in icy waters of the northern Barents Sea, Svalbard and North Sea.

VisionMaster FT radars incorporate Sperry Marine’s proprietary automatic clutter suppression technology, which facilitates detecting and identifying small, weak targets in the presence of sea and rain clutter. They are type-approved by the United Kingdom classification organisation QinetiQ.
