KONGSBERG is developing entirely new bridge consoles featuring multifunction displays.
The first delivery will be to the Norwegian Navy’s Skjold project. This new console
will include three multifunction displays. These can be used to display ARPA radar,
ECDIS, tactical information, EOMS video, air surveillance radar video and other
information. A provisional bridge will be provided in June 2005, and the first complete
bridge solution in November 2005.
The Skjold project
project includes six new Skjold Class missile torpedo boats (MTB) to the Norwegian
Navy. Five of the vessels are new buildings. The sixth, the KNM Skjold, is already
in the water, but will be upgraded and equipped with new weapon systems. The development
phase will take four years and the vessels are scheduled for delivery in 2008-2009.
The ships will also carry the new KONGSBERG naval strike missile.
