Raytheon Anschütz GmbH was founded in 1905 under the name Anschütz & Co. in Kiel, Germany and is today a subsidiary of the Raytheon Company. In the early days, our company has innovated shipping with the development of the world’s first gyro compass, the iron helmsman, and the chart plotter.
Today, more than 35,000 ships use Raytheon Anschütz equipment. This makes Raytheon Anschütz a leading manufacturer and supplier of Integrated Bridge and Navigation Systems and key components such as Gyro Compasses, Autopilots, Steering Control Systems, Radars and ECDIS. With a worldwide network of subsidiaries and service stations we offer customers extensive, highly qualified after sales service and support through the full life cycle of ship and equipment.
Raytheon Anschütz presents the latest navigation systems, including the SYNAPSIS NX Integrated Navigation System (INS), at KORMARINE 2019. SYNAPSIS NX offers customers a never-before-possible flexibility in concept, function and design of the bridge system, and, with regard to safety, ensures multi-redundancy and maximum situation awareness.
Synapsis NX - the next level of Integrated Navigation Systems (INS) - is the world's first INS which has been type-approved according to IMO performance and IEC test standard MSC.252(83)/IEC 61924-2. Synapsis NX is based on task-oriented multifunctional workstations which can be easily configured according to customer’s individual requirements – from a radar or ECDIS workplace up to a fully integrated multifunctional workstation which provides a multitude of features and functions.
The Anschütz Standard 30 MF Gyro Compass is the second generation of maintenance free gyro compasses from Raytheon Anschütz based on hemispherical resonator gyro (HRGs) technology.
The use of HRG technology together with the simple design makes it extremely reliable with no wear and tear and no need for maintenance. The mean time between failures (MTBF) value of Standard 30 MF is more than 100,000 hours which is a multiple of the MTBF values of optical gyros (such as FOGs).
