Megayacht Solutions

Raytheon Anschütz has the expertise and experience from over one hundred large mega yacht projects, which makes us one of the leading mega yacht navigation system integrators. When deciding for Raytheon Anschütz navigation systems, our customers decide for a professional solution, proven day by day. Advanced features ensure a safe and most comfortable cruise, whereby standardized user interfaces, harmonized product design and state-of-the-art technologies enable the realization within very individual bridge designs.

Thanks to dedicated support throughout the whole project and a close relationship with leading shipyards for mega yachts, almost any individual owner requirements can be implemented.

Smart system architecture

Synapsis comes with a smart “next generation” system architecture – this is what the “NX”stands for. Synapsis NX Workstations can be easily configured according to customer’s individual requirements.

The workstations share data and information via Ethernet (LAN). By utilizing standardized hardware components through the entire bridge navigation system and the LAN-based radar transceivers, and by having all sensor information enabled to LAN, the architecture increases redundancy, flexibility and scalability. Furthermore, the new system architecture reduces complexity of the system for easier installation, higher reliability and better resistance to failures. With regard to safety, the system concept is designed so that a failure of a component is compensated by the redundancy concept - without loss of functionality.


All Synapsis NX Workstations are based on the ultra-compact, powerful Small Marine Computer (SMC). The SMC features a solid-state disk and passive cooling to increase reliability and lifetime.


The NautoScan NX radar transceivers use state-of-the-art network technology. Key benefits are the redundant Gigabit LAN video distribution and the raw data processing on workstation level for high flexibility and optimized performance of an individual end-user application.


With the NautoPlex Serial to LAN converters, all serial sensor data as well as status information is collected and distributed via LAN to every workstation. The result: reduced cabling, enhanced flexibility.


Synapsis Remote Diagnosis is a new service which allows Raytheon Anschütz’ shore-based service experts to check actual system status and error logs via a secured connection. This ensures optimized service actions with predictable results and avoids unnecessary attendance.


Advanced bridge system solutions including the integration of virtually any third party software or workstation. Applications can be integrated on the multifunctional workstations in accordance with hardware requirements or alternatively a digital KVM matrix can be used. In this case, computers as well as displays and operation controls are connected to a digital matrix system, which can be operated on the screen of the Synapsis NX Multifunctional Workstation or the 12" Synapsis NX Touch Panels. A fingertip enables the remote display of virtually any application / PC at a dedicated workplace – a true “any function, any place“ principle, including a hard wired fallback to primary connections as redundancy for the matrix itself. This means a highly flexible and ergonomical integration of the navigation and further bridge systems according to owner’s choice, and also with regard to interior design.
