New ECDIS-E from Northrop Grumman

By Maritime Reporter & Engineering News

Northrop Grumman is introducing the VisionMaster FT Electronic Chart Display and Information System-E (ECDIS-E), a new navigation solution for commercial tankers, containerships, bulk carries and passenger ferries including retrofit installations. It is based on the Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT platform. The system meets International Maritime Organization requirements for certain classes of vessels operating internationally to be equipped with ECDIS for paperless navigation. The design of the new VisionMaster FT ECDIS-E is focused on ease of use and features a simplified menu structure. It operates on a new standard commercial panel PC, which handles the functions of the monitor, PC unit and related subassemblies and incorporates Total Solid State (TSS) technology. TSS enables Northrop Grumman to build panel PCs that use only microchips instead of the traditional mechanical or rotating active components.
