Jumbo newbuilds to install Raytheon INS

Raytheon Anschütz has been awarded a contract for the supply of Integrated Navigation Systems from its Synapsis Bridge Control series to a group of new heavy lift carriers being built at Brodosplit shipyard in Split, Croatia for Dutch company Jumbo Shipping.

Jumbo has ordered two such ships, with delivery dates in 2013, and holds an option for a third newbuild.

The Integrated Navigation System (INS) includes S-band and X-band radar sensors, which are configured as wide-screen multifunctional workstations for chart radar, radar, ECDIS and conning.

Two additional multifunctional workstations with the same configuration will serve as the main and backup ECDIS, with another multifunctional workstation with ECDIS and conning functions supplied for route planning purposes. Additionally, the bridge is equipped with two fixed-role conning displays.

All workstations are connected through a redundant Ethernet-based local area network (LAN), with relevant navigation data such as charts, routes and sensor information shared within the network and stored independently on each system.

An integrated consistent common reference system (CCRS) monitors all navigation sensors and automatically selects the best available data.

On all conning displays within the INS, the operator can access the interface for the CCRS to observe sensor quality or switch over to manual sensor selection mode. The conning also includes a new page for central alert monitoring.
