Raytheon Anschütz has announced new contracts for the delivery of its Synapsis Integrated Navigation Systems (INS) to five 14,500 TEU container vessels being built at Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding for COSCO Container Lines.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new vessels will be owned by Shanghai-based COSCO and are planned to enter operation between September 2016 and December 2017.

Each ship set will consist of X- and S-band radars and seven Synapsis NX Multifunctional Workstations in various configurations. The INS also integrates the adaptive autopilot NP 5400, the CAN-Bus based NautoSteer AS manual steering control system, and the Standard 22 gyro compass system.

Additional navigational sensors can also be added to the navigational Ethernet network using NautoPlex data converters.

“We are proud to deliver the most advanced Integrated Navigation Systems to one of the world’s largest shipping companies,” said Peter Zhu, general manager of Raytheon Anschütz’s representative office in Shanghai.

“COSCO will receive a navigation system in full compliance with latest IMO standards, allowing the new vessels to navigate efficiently and safely.”

The Raytheon Anschütz Shanghai office will offer local support to both shipyard and ship owner under the contract, including coordination of delivery and implementation of the Integrated Navigation Systems.{/mprestriction}
