Version 9.3 which supports polar operations has significantly increased rendering speeds, integrates seamlessly with combat radar and mission planning submarine systems and allows for real-time checking of installed charts.

"VMS 9.3 brings significant performance and usability improvements over earlier versions and I appreciate the hard work by Northrop Grumman to make this a great product," said Capt. John D Zimmerman, Program Executive Office, Submarines (PEO SUB), PMS 425. "Submarine Force feedback on VMS 9.3 has been very positive and the boats are excited to have it installed."

"These improvements in the VMS, along with a newly streamlined user interface, will help to dramatically improve the sailor's ability to navigate efficiently," said Todd Leavitt, vice president, maritime systems, Northrop Grumman.
