Synapsis Radars / Chart Radars

The Raytheon Anschütz radar is a sensitive radar under all sailing conditions. A new generation of network radar transceivers delivers raw radar video to the workstations. This not only offers maximum flexibility in system layout but also enables individual applications to process high-fidelity data.

The brilliant performance goes hand in hand with intelligent operating philosophy and ease of use. In addition to conventional features such as automatic tracking, echo expansions, or target trails, advanced functions such as the SeaScout anti-collision tool and video merging further enhance navigation system capabilities.

Chart radar provides sea chart information on the radar screen. Contributing to more efficient watch keeping, this helps to see where the yacht is located with respect to shores, shallow waters or traffic separation zones.

Customized Panel Solutions

Attractive wheelhouse surroundings, achieved through a harmonized, seamless bridge design, are often a key demand of the owners, designers and architects. However, a common look and feel is also a strong contributor to ease of operation and safety.

BlackVelvet Advanced Design is a modular and customizable wheelhouse control panel solution designed and manufactured by Raytheon Anschütz. The panels feature newly engineered, flexibly programmable interfaces to connect with third-party operation devices including horn, window wiper, lights, thrusters, or engine remote control. With BlackVelvet Advanced Design the devices can be adapted to the well accepted Anschütz design and haptics.

As an alternative, the new 12” Synapsis Touch Panels can be used to control and actuate the respective hardware interfaces of these operation devices. With the Synapsis Touch Panels the operator interfaces are provided in the standardized look and feel of the navigational applications and can be easily adapted to changing requirements.

Synapsis ECDIS / Electronic Sea Chart

The Raytheon Anschütz ECDIS features clear display design, easy-to-operate menu structures and intelligent functionality to make route planning and monitoring tasks as easy and safe as possible.

Our ECDIS offers advanced functions such as precise track control, automatic route planning, or overlay of weather data and forecast symbols. Through the integration of AIS and Navtex receivers functions move from panels to displays. Your benefits: Simplified routines, better situational awareness, all information at a glance and a contribution to clear, space-saving wheelhouse design.

A tender tracking module can be easily added to ECDIS to display position and navigational data of own tender boats (such as depth to permit exploration of narrow bays). To ensure full privacy, signals are encoded.

Raytheon Anschütz Conning NX

The Conning NX comes in a new, revolutionary design. It features a clearly arranged presentation of various sensor and ship system data, which are distributed through the bridge Ethernet network. Having all important information available easily at a glance increases situational awareness and provides efficient help in decision making for navigators.

Depending on customer and individual requirements, various functions can be activated and configured as needed. In addition to few standard pages an integrated editor makes possible the configuration of project-specific display pages – always sharing an appealing graphical screen design. Therefore, whereas the whole bridge is subject to customized design and configuration, the conning is an excellent example for the high degree of individualization.

Gyro and Sensors

Anschütz gyro compasses are well-known for superior precision and reliability even under harshest environmental conditions, whereas Raytheon radars are well known for their outstanding performance. Bringing both together and making use of decades of experience, Raytheon Anschütz has developed the current generation gyro compass and radar sensors to provide the navigation system with the most relevant information at a high-quality level.

The portfolio is completed with repeaters and additionally required sensors and navigational aids. If installed within an integrated navigation system, all sensor data is continuously monitored, quality rated and distributed automatically to all connected workstations to ensure consistent and common sensor information. Furthermore, AIS and Navtex information is integrated for display and operation from ECDIS and conning screens.

Autopilot and Manual Steering

NautoPilot 5000 as the top-of-the-range trackpilot and the NautoSteer AS bus steering control set the standards when safe and most precise steering is required.

The NP 5000 features a 5.7” TFT color display with touch screen operation. Most advanced features for a safe and comfortable cruise are included, such as the new acceleration monitor which serves to avoid damage to passengers and yacht due to sharp turns at high speed. NP 5000 features three modes of heading, course and track control.

The NP 5000 belongs to the new NautoSteer AS steering control series. NautoSteer AS is based with all its components on safe CAN-bus technology. All steering controls are fitted with take-over function and include features to further enhance operational safety, such as integrated wire break alarm and steering failure alarm.

Safety & Security

The innovative SynGuard application is an efficient shipborne security solution for perimeter security and privacy protection. SynGuard integrates the yacht’s existing navigation systems such as AIS and radar with a suite of commercial surveillance cameras to offer early detection and identification of approaching contacts as well as efficient alarm zone monitoring. It allows tender tracking, search light control and video recording.

Build on the flexible and advanced Synapsis system architecture, SynGuard can be easily configured and integrated with individual components to maximize situational awareness, and provide effective protection for mega yachts in accordance with individual requirements. Of course, Raytheon Anschütz can provide SynGuard as an addition to the Synapsis multifunctional workstations in order to save bridge space.
