WASHINGTON (BNS): Indian Navy will be procuring integrated bridge systems (IBS) for two new fleet tankers from the Northrop Grumman Corporation.

The Indian Navy ships will be fitted with radars, electronic chart display and information systems, adaptive self-tuning autopilots, gyrocompasses and repeaters, speed sensors, echosounders, differential GPS and other navigation subsystems and sensors.

"This important contract win builds on our longstanding relationship as a key supplier to the Indian Navy," said J. Nolasco DaCunha, vice president of International Naval Systems at Northrop Grumman's Naval and Marine Systems Division, according to a news report by Northrop Grumman.

Sperry Marine will also install ship's inertial navigation system and data distribution system, which will be interfaced with the combat management system.

The IBS supply orders were given to the Northrop Grumman's Sperry Marine unit by the Italian shipbuilding company Fincantieri.

The heavy 175-meter tankers are being built in Italy and are scheduled for delivery to the Indian Navy in 2010-2011.
