Raytheon Anschütz navigation systems advance to the next level

Smart sensor technology and the next level in integrated navigation system – this is what the German navigation system company Raytheon Anschütz has shown during SMM 2016.

With Synapsis NX the Integrated Navigation System is advancing to the next level. Smart network architecture and innovative system modules not only dramatically reduce complexity, but also improve bridge system integration.

The network architecture enables access to virtually any PC and application from any workstation, without a limitation on the navigation system. Further Synapsis NX features new touch panels with versatile software, providing functions such as central alert management for the entire bridge and is designed to integrate user interfaces for further control systems. This way ship owners receive their entrance ticket to Navigation 4.0

Further, and as a world premiere, Raytheon Anschütz has unveilled the new Standard 30 MF – a maintenance-free gyro, which continues the renowned “Standard” series of Anschütz gyro compasses. Standard 30 MF provides heading, rate-of-turn, roll and pitch information. Standard 30 MF is based on the innovative hemispherical resonator gyro (HRGs) technology. This makes the gyro extremely reliable with no wear and tear and no need for maintenance, with a lifetime performance and effectiveness which significantly outrun a fibre-optical gyro.

Among its features, Standard 30 MF settles at rough-seas and provides heading output even if speed and latitude input fails. With Ethernet and CAN-bus interfaces, cabling efforts are minimized.

Together with the NautoScan NX network radar, Standard 30 MF represents Raytheon Anschütz’ next generation of smart sensors. The new sensors distinguish through less need for maintenance and data sharing via Ethernet – which significantly improves performance and system integration while reducing installation efforts and cost.
