Raytheon Anschütz has launched Synapsis Bridge Control at SMM 2010 in Hamburg.

Raytheon Anschütz has launched Synapsis Bridge Control at SMM 2010 in Hamburg.

At the opening day of SMM the German navigation system supplier Raytheon Anschütz has launched its recently announced new Intelligent Bridge System within an official ceremony. The Integrated Navigation System (INS), which was given the name Synapsis Bridge Control, is designed to make navigation more efficient and to simplify operation for users. Raytheon Anschütz shows the Synapsis Bridge Control at booth # 320 in Hall B6.

According to Raytheon Anschütz, Synapsis Bridge Control was chosen as brand name to symbolize the intelligence of the new navigation system generation with its immediate processing of data, a consistent data presentation to the operator and an intuitive support in decision making. The INS features new wide-screen, task-orientated Multifunctional Workstations. Using standard hardware and software, the workstations allows for full scalability and future expandability. Possible configurations are ranging from a stand-alone ECDIS workplace to a full integrated workstation that provides access to all nautical tasks such as route monitoring, collision avoidance, navigation control, status and data display or alarm monitoring. A central change of display color schemes as well as central dimming can be processed from any workstation within the INS.

The configurations and tasks of the workstations are controlled by a newly developed Bridge Integration Platform. The platform provides common interfaces to further ship systems that enable the integration of additional applications such as automation, DP system or CCTV from various suppliers on the Multifunctional Workstations.

Within the INS, all data is distribution by a new dual Ethernet bus to be stored independently at any workstation. Having all information consistently available throughout the whole navigation network also allows creating new display pages with respect to individual requirements. As an example, in accordance with the idea of e-navigation Raytheon Anschütz presents a new Voyage Efficiency Monitor. The joint display of navigation data with engine automation data and loadmaster computer data is to enhance bridge operations and support the navigator in right decision making, particularly with regard to the rudder steering, which can help to optimize voyage planning and fuel consumption.

To integrate the operator interfaces of the intelligent alert management and the new Consistent Common Reference System (CCRS), Raytheon Anschütz has also enhanced its NautoConning display. Within the INS, the CCRS continuously observes the availability, validity and integrity of all sensor data and calculates a quality indicator for each sensor. The Conning displays the quality indicators and provides a system wide sensor and source selection menu including a choice between manual and automatic sensor selection. Within the automatic sensor selection mode, a set of the best sensor data is compiled automatically and distributed throughout the entire navigation system. Apart from increasing the ship’s safety through intelligent use of on board sensor information, this is expected to reduce work load of officers and pilots on duty.

As an essential part of Synapsis Bridge Control, Raytheon Anschütz has also introduced the new adaptive NautoPilot 5000 with its color TFT and touch screen operation as well as the latest generation of Nautosteer AS steering control system. Based on CAN-bus, NautoSteer AS was developed with regard to fail-to-safe principles. All components are fitted with take-over function and include wire break and steering failure monitoring. Raytheon Anschütz says, apart from making commissioning and installation of systems at the shipyard easier, the new steering control sets new standards of highest safety at sea.

Raytheon Anschütz GmbH is a subsidiary of the Raytheon Company (Waltham, MA, USA) and a part of the Integrated Defense Systems department (IDS, Tewksbury). The company was founded in 1905 as Anschütz & Co and currently has more than 500 employees. All of the essential components for safe ship navigation are developed, produced, and meticulously tested at the headquarters in Kiel. A worldwide service network with more than 200 service stations serves as a prerequisite for reliable operation round-the-clock.
