Furuno USA, Inc. said it has been awarded a five-year U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) IDIQ contract, valued at approximately $10 million, to supply Doppler Speed Logs (DSL) as part of the USCG's Doppler Speed Refreshment Project. Furuno's DS60 DSL will be installed on more than 200 vessels, ranging from 87' Marine Protector-class patrol boats to the 418' National Security Cutters, the largest class of vessel in the USCG fleet.

The U.S. Government required a DSL that would interface with existing shipboard equipment, while retaining the functional characteristics and performance of the original systems being replaced. The Furuno DS60 is a precision three-axis Doppler Sonar that offers real-time information for safe berthing and docking maneuvers. The DS60's bright, 8.4" color LCD display offers three display modes: three-axis speed, berthing, and a detailed navigation data display, capable of showing information in both graphic and alphanumeric formats.
The DS60 offers measurement capability at dead slow speed that is vital for precise docking. It features a single, compact, high-frequency transducer that is capable of measuring ship's longitudinal and transverse speed relative to ground or water, as well as water speed and direction beneath the hull, with astonishing accuracy.
USCG has placed initial orders and vessel installations will commence in late 2017/early 2018.
