Northrop Grumman has been selected by the New Zealand Ministry of Defence to provide navigation suite upgrades to the two Royal New Zealand Navy’s ANZAC Class Frigates.

The suites will replace existing MK49 inertial navigation units with fourth-generation MK39s.

The new units feature an embedded data distribution system, reduced weight and size, and autoselect features that ensure the highest quality data is made available to the ship.

Data distribution capabilities include secure network communications capable of transmitting time-corrected data with low senescence to significantly improve the warfighter’s ability to react to potential threats and increase safety at sea.
