Synapsis INS for German containership newbuildings

Raytheon Anschütz has announced that it has been selected by German shipowner NSC to supply its Synapsis INS (Integrated Navigation System) to a series of containership newbuildings.

The 9,000 TEU vessels are being built by Korea's Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction’s Subic Shipyard, in the Philippines. They are scheduled to start operating in 2014 under a long-term charter of Compania Chilena de Navegacion Interoceanica (CCNI).

German developer Raytheon Anschütz will supply integrated navigation from the Synapsis Intelligent Bridge Control series in accordance with IMO’s new INS Performance Standards.

The bridge system will consist of four Synapsis multifunctional workstations, X- and S-band radar sensors, NautoPilot 5300, a steering gear control system, and a gyro compass system. Navigation sensors and a radio communication system are also included.

Raytheon Anschütz says that a workstation can process tasks such as Radar, ECDIS, Conning, or third party applications simultaneously. A task switch on the screen gives operators a central access to the different applications.

The workstations are connected through an Ethernet ring network. A software framework offers the central processing of formerly local organised tasks.

“Delivering an IMO-certified Integrated Navigation System was surely a key reason for us being selected as the supplier to this project,” said Jens Falkenberg, sales manager at Raytheon Anschütz.

“Being the first manufacturer who gained IMO type approval for Integrated Navigation also underlines the innovative technology and the high standards we are used to delivering.”
