Norwegian Gateway Upgrades to NACOS Platinum

L-3 Marine Systems International (L-3 MSI) has supplied its NACOS Platinum series aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s new 324-metre, 145,500-gt cruise liner, Norwegian Getaway.

Built by Meyer Werft at its Papenburg shipyard in northern Germany, the vessel entered service in February of this year from its home port of Miami.

It is the sister vessel to Norwegian Breakaway, which was launched last year and is equipped with identical L-3 SAM Electronics and L-3 Valmarine integrated NACOS Platinum systems.

“Following our successful system installations on Norwegian Breakaway, L-3 is extremely proud to have completed this major undertaking for the second of the two largest liners built in Germany,” said Ulrich Weinreuter, President of L-3 Marine Systems International.

“This latest deployment of our NACOS Platinum series once again underscores our continuing dedication to providing proven, state-of-the-art technology for the world’s leading cruise fleets.”

L-3 SAM Electronics’ NACOS Platinum navigation system comprises five X- and S-band radars serially linked to eleven main Multipilot multifunction workstations for combined displays of ARPA radar, ECDIS conning and dynamic positioning operations, in addition to those for automatic steering and voyage planning.

The touch-screen units are in turn connected to secondary stations for selectable displays of data located at port and starboard wings as well as the captain’s cabin.

The NACOS Platinum series is complemented by an advanced dynamic positioning system with three polar axis controllers and one CP1 DP controller in addition to special cruise software developed by L-3 Dynamic Positioning & Control Systems.

DP functionality is available at the main operator console and at both bridge wings.
