Oxley has been awarded a contract to provide detailed engineering for LED navigation and signal lights for two Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers currently under construction for the Royal Navy.

Under the contract, awarded by Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine, Oxley will provide engineering services for the ships’ navigation and signalling lights, including sidelights, stern light, anchor light, manoeuvring lights and warning signals.

The scope of work encompasses 11 different light specifications.

LED technology will be implemented throughout, ensuring high-reliability, low-maintenance and reduced electrical-load-power requirements, resulting in low through-life costs.

The lights will meet Colregs (International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea) and will be Oxley NVG Friendly, which means they will be suitable for night operations with night-vision goggles.
