Navigation Solutions

Commercial Navigation System Solutions

More than 100 years ago we were the inventor of the gyro compass. Today Raytheon Anschütz is a leading supplier of nautical equipment and integrated bridge / navigation systems (IBS / INS) for the shipping and shipbuilding market. All core products are developed, manufactured and validated in FAT at our headquarters in Kiel, providing the basis for our high flexibility with regard to individual adaptations.

Our product range comprises well-proven Anschütz gyro compasses, adaptive autopilots and steering control systems, marine radar and electronic sea charts (ECDIS), as well as highly customized integrated navigation systems.

Our integrated system solutions are well suited for all ship types – such as bulk carriers or container ships, oil or LNG tankers, offshore and research vessels, ferries or cruise ships. Typically, individual requirements from the merchant marine range from providing basic navigation system function – with a focus on cost-efficiency, simple installation, easy operation – through advanced navigation systems with function beyond basic IMO requirements to large systems with many workplaces, redundancies and a multitude of additional functions to reach highest standards of safety, efficiency and operation comfort.

At Raytheon Anschütz all projects are closely accompanied by project management, from project outline and specification of systems through customer-specific engineering, assembly, testing and installation to setting in operation. Our worldwide service contributes to low operation costs, minimized vessel downtime, and reduced workload ashore.
