northrop grumman logoA Northrop Grumman subsidiary has been chosen to install paperless navigation technology on-board Arklow Shipping cargo vessels by the end of 2014.

Northrop’s Sperry Marine unit will equip 12 Arklow container ships with its VisionMaster FT electronic chart display and information systems, Northrop said Monday.

Alan Dix, managing director of Northrop Sperry Marine, said the technology is aimed to address the International Maritime Organization standards and is intended to possess long-term cost efficiency.

The  company designed the VisionMaster FT ECDIS to merge navigation sensors into a multifunction workstation.

According to Northrop, Arklow vessels requiring upgrades operate with a capacity of between 3,000 and 5,000 tons.
