Raytheon Anschütz designs, produces and integrates bridge navigation systems for naval vessels. The company also offers global after sales services, such as training, logistics, and customised in-service support contracts.

Raytheon Anschütz’s bridge system integration has been used in the most advanced naval programmes worldwide, such as the Type 26 Global Combat Ships or Germany’s F125 next-generation frigates.

Bridge system integration for the naval industry

Raytheon Anschütz is experienced in the design and integration of bridge and navigation systems.

Available technology includes a range of gyros and inertial navigation systems, autopilots and steering controls, radars, warship electronic chart display and information system (WECDIS) and command and control / fire control systems, as well as fully integrated bridge and navigation systems.

Raytheon Anschütz designs individually optimised, efficient system solutions together with the respective customer to meet complex requirements and, at the same time, to reduce risk and non-recurring development cost.

Highly advanced integrated bridge and tactical navigation systems

The SYNAPSIS NX Integrated Bridge and Navigation System (INBS) offers a range of functions, at any time and any place to enhance situational awareness and provides easy adaptation to various mission scenarios.

Open architecture and a shared computing environment are key aspects of SYNAPSIS and represent the cutting-edge of bridge systems interoperability, performance, and scalability from compact integrated navigation systems for small vessels to complex naval platforms.

SYNAPSIS eliminates specific hardware requirements allowing the company to offer customised, highly integrated solutions to maximise system and platform capabilities and, at the same time, to provide unparalleled flexibility for future upgrades, feature updates, replacements and system enhancements.

Navigation, C2 and combat management for small naval vessels

Raytheon Anschütz is a specialised supplier of integrated solutions for command-and-control (C2) and International Maritime Organisation (IMO) navigation for small and mid-sized ships.

These ships require smart system solutions for navigation and tactical operations, which work under limited budgets but still fulfill demanding functional requirements.

The high system functionality of SYNTACS, in spite of overall cost-effectiveness, was achieved through consistent standardisation and the use of commercial system components.

SYNTACS is almost completely scalable and can be set up according to the requirements of the ship or mission.

Systems can range from a one-console system for situational awareness at sea on up to a complex system for C2, weapons control and navigation on offshore patrol vessels (OPVs) and small corvettes.

Submarine navigation, command, control and monitoring

Raytheon Anschütz is not only recognised as a leader for surface ship navigation and control systems but also for submarine technology.

The company provides customised submarine solutions for integrated navigation, sensors, command and control applications, 3D steering control, data management, and battery monitoring.

More than 50 navies, and the world’s leading submarine builders, rely on submarine technology and system integration by Raytheon Anschütz.

It is also experienced in providing engineering retrofit packages, which always take into consideration the ship type, mission, hull construction, ship system layout and legacy system interfacing. Raytheon Anschütz retrofit solutions help to maintain reliability and excellence in mission performance.

The ship type, mission, hull construction, ship system layout and interfacing is taken into consideration to ensure the correct solution.
