Raytheon Anschütz offers a wide range of nautical equipment – starting with well-proven Anschütz gyros and autopilots, through state-of-the-art radar sensors, to bridge navigation workstations for radar or ECDIS and complete Integrated Bridge and Navigation Systems (INS / IBS). Special solutions are available for naval ships, submarines and surveillance applications.
Integrated Bridge / Navigation Systems, Submarine Solutions, Surveillance
Radar / ECDIS / Conning
Raytheon Anschütz offers state-of-the-art network-based radar transceivers and a new generation of multifunctional workstations for navigation, which provide the base for Radar, ECDIS or Conning applications – as needed by the respective customer.
Manual Steering Gear Control Systems
Raytheon Anschütz offers highly accurate, safe and flexible manual steering gear control systems, which can be configured according to any customer requirements.
With the experience of thousands of autopilot installations, Raytheon Anschütz has developed three different series of (adaptive and non-adaptive) autopilots, corresponding to the requirements of different vessel types.
Gyro Compass Systems / Repeater Compasses
Being the inventor of the gyro compass, Raytheon Anschütz offers sophisticated and cutting edge gyro compass technology based on over 110 years of experience. Raytheon Anschütz also offers maintenance-free solid-state gyros.
Standard 30 MF Gyro Compass (HRG)
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).
The HRG technology has already been used in Horizon MF – the predecessor of Standard 30 MF – and has proven its reliability and accuracy in more than one hundred installations. The new Standard 30 MF is even smaller as its predecessor, can be used as rate-of-turn indicator (required for vessels above 50.000 GT according to SOLAS) and features an optimized integration into a Raytheon Anschütz heading management system. With Ethernet and CAN-bus interfaces, cabling efforts are minimized.
Special Naval / Submarine Equipment
In addition to the wide-ranging product line for surface ship applications, Raytheon Anschütz can offer a specialized product line as well as customer-specific applications for submarines. The product line extends the portfolio for example with advanced data management systems, chart tables and navigation consoles, various single-/multi-purpose displays as well as battery monitoring and customized 3D steering controls for submarines.
