VARD adds INS to research vessel

Raytheon Anschütz reports that it has won a contract with VARD Holding for the supply of a Synapsis Integrated Navigation System (INS) to a research vessel under construction at Cochin Shipyard.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}VARD Holding’s subsidiary VARD Electro will include the Synapsis INS as part of an equipment and electrical installation package to be delivered to the shipyard.

The INS consists of a total of six workstations for chart radar, ECDIS and conning, all connected through a redundant Ethernet-based local area network (LAN). The INS manages all routes and charts, sharing data across the network, and over all central tasks and services, including consistent data handling and data distribution (CCRS and central target management), system health monitoring and switch over, alert management, and user settings.

Raytheon Anschütz will also deliver S-band- and X-band network-based radar sensors, NP 5000 autopilot, and a fully redundant inertial navigation system. The company’s Norway-based partner, Syberg AS, will be responsible for the supply and commissioning of the systems.{/mprestriction}
