Autopilot update from Raytheon

Raytheon Anschütz has launched its new PilotStar NX autopilot, with a 7-inch touch TFT display providing heading and rudder plot, as well as track data.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The autopilot includes functions such as a trim mode and a pre-set heading function designed for specialised workboat operations. Tillers and handwheels can also be connected, to create compact steering gear control systems.

“PilotStar NX is the result of a careful design process, implementing the newest technologies and vast experience from the field,” said Olav Denker, product manager at Raytheon Anschütz.

“During several months of sea trials aboard a search and rescue cruiser in the Baltic Sea we were able to validate the new autopilot, its reliability and performance.”

PilotStar NX also includes Ethernet communication and bridge alert management capabilities.{/mprestriction}
