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.

Multifunctional workstations

Synapsis NX consists of multifunctional workstations that use ultra-compact, powerful Small Marine Computers (SMC) with solid-state disk and passive cooling to increase reliability and lifetime. Customers can decide to run the software applications Radar NX, ECDIS NX and Conning NX or any combination in parallel on each computer. Configuration is done easily by software licenses. Solutions for enhanced situational awareness and security, including the integration of camera systems, and further third-party applications can be added as an option.

Bridge integration platform (BIP)

The Bridge Integration Platform (BIP) is the innovative, central software framework of the bridge system. It is part of each workstation and controls all central services of the navigation system, such as data distribution, system and sensor health status monitoring, redundancy and backup management, intelligent alert management, and settings. The BIP ensures the integrity of data as well as availability and consistent handling of data and alerts throughout the entire bridge system.

High performance radars

The NautoScan NX radar transceivers create a high-fidelity radar raw video, which is distributed to the bridge via redundant Gigabit LAN. The raw data processing on workstation level ensures high flexibility and optimized performance for collision avoidance or any other end-user application. The radar also supports an advanced radar video merge without quality losses and interference.

LAN-based data distribution

The NautoPlex Serial to LAN converters collect and convert all serial sensor data as well as status information to LAN. The workstations then have full access to the sensor data as well as to the raw radar videos via LAN, this makes the system even more flexible and scalable and also adds redundancy to the system. Moreover, cabling is more transparent and related efforts much reduced.

Customer Service

Individual coordination of services, knowledgeable and low-key service attendance, fast and competent fix – this is our standard when servicing our equipment onboard mega yachts during lifetime operation.
