Swedish patrol boats to install IBS

Sperry Marine reports that it is to supply integrated bridge systems (IBS) for the new class of patrol boats being built for the Swedish Coast Guard.

The IBS for the patrol boats is based on the company's VisionMaster FT technology, which integrates the vessels' navigation and ship control functions within an Ethernet network.

Each vessel will be equipped with three TotalWatch multifunction workstations, which include ECDIS, navigational radars, GPS positioning, autopilot, steering control and conning information. Voyage data recorders (VDR) will also be supplied to the ships.

The contract includes five new vessels, with the first vessel, built by Baltic Workboats in Estonia, recently delivered to the Swedish Coast Guard.

CA Clase Marinelektronik AB, Sperry's sales and service representative in Sweden, will provide technical support to the Swedish Coast Guard for the project.

“Our state-of-the-art navigation technology will provide optimum situational awareness for the ships' watch officers in carrying out their missions on these new patrol boats,” said Hans Rasmussen, director of global business development, Sperry Marine.
