Northrop Grumman Corporation has supplied the electronic navigation systems for Voyages to Antiquity’s Aegean Odyssey, which started cruising for the start-up line last month following 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, Northrop Grumman’s sales and service agent in Greece, was responsible for installation, commissioning, testing and technical support, as well as operator training.

The 461ft Aegean Odyssey can carry up to 388 passengers and 200 crew members was refitted to Lloyd’s Register classification requirements and will sail under the Maltese flag. Next cruise is a 15 day sailing departing June 15 from Venice to Istanbul.

‘The Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT systems provide proven technology and inherent flexibility to meet the ship’s requirements for safe and efficient navigation in a cost-effective manner,’ said J. Nolasco DaCunha, vice president of Naval Systems International at Northrop Grumman’s Naval and Marine Systems Division.
