NGC Selected to Provide Navigation Suite Upgrade to the Royal New Zealand Navy

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) has been selected by the New Zealand Ministry of Defence to provide navigation suite upgrades to the two Royal New Zealand Navy's ANZAC Class Frigates.

The navigation suites will replace existing MK49 inertial navigation units with fourth-generation MK39s. These new inertial navigational units are next-generation and feature an embedded data distribution system. In addition to a significant reduction in weight and size, the newer MK39 has autoselect features that ensure the highest quality data is made available to the ship. The unit also enables a lower cost of ownership.

"Northrop Grumman is pleased to have been awarded a contract by the New Zealand Ministry of Defence for this crucial upgrade to the Royal New Zealand Navy's frigates," said Todd Leavitt, vice president of maritime systems, Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems. "This dependable suite combines our latest navigation technology and data distribution capabilities, which include secure network communications capable of transmitting time-corrected data with low senescence. This capability will significantly improve the warfighter's ability to react to potential threats and increase safety at sea."
