Headquartered in Surrey, United Kingdom, Sperry Marine is a premier designer and manufacturer of navigational equipment including steering systems, compass systems, speed logs, integrated bridge systems, and control systems. Founded in 1997, Sperry Marine was formed out of three legacy companies with over a century of maritime navigation experience-Sperry Gyrocompass, C. Plath, and Decca Radar. Since 2001, Sperry Marine has been operating as a business unit of Northrop Grumman’s Navigation and Maritime Systems Division.

Sperry Marine’s extensive portfolio of navigational goods includes the following patented products:

  • Autopilot & Steering Control Systems: The first manual steering system to be based on controller area network (CAN) technology, Sperry Marine’s NAVIGUIDE 4000 manual steering system and NAVIPILOT 4000 self-tuning adaptive heading control system control a variety of steering gear types for both single and double rudder vessels.
  • Compass Systems: The reliable Jupiter flat glass magnetic compass incorporates a steering compass, a bearing compass, a reflector compass, and an overhead compass into one system. Weighing just 8.8 kilograms and spanning 180 millimeters, the Jupiter compass can be fitted within the wheelhouse and in all NAVIPOL magnetic compass binnacles.
  • Integrated Navigation & Bridge Systems: The Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine Integrated Bridge System (IBS) enhance a crew’s situational awareness. Engineered with reliable sensors to support the vessel’s core navigation system, the Sperry Marine IBS system ensures proper route planning, status monitoring, daily chart management, log-keeping, and alarm awareness.
  • Navigation Radar & ECDIS: Incorporating the most current state-of-the-art Panel PC technology, the Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT ECDIS-E features a 24-inch wide screen display with key sensor inputs to keep the crew aware of engineering statuses, alarm alerts, and navigational information.

For the fiscal year 2013, Sperry Marine’s parent company Northrop Grumman reported revenues of USD$24.7 billion.
