Raytheon Anschütz launches maintenance-free Gyro Compass

Press release from: Raytheon Anschütz GmbH

With the new Horizon MF the German navigation system manufacturer Raytheon Anschütz launches a new generation gyro compass which can be operated free of maintenance.

Horizon MF is Raytheon Anschütz’ new strap down compass system which uses Hemispherical Resonator Gyros (HRG) to measure angular rates for heading calculation.

In a strapped-down system angular rate gyros and accelerometers are not gimballed but mounted stationary in a housing. The sensor measures angular rates and accelerations in three axes. Based on these measurements sophisticated software algorithms compute heading but also roll and pitch.

Horizon MF comes as a maintenance-free (MF) sensor with an outstanding lifetime performance. Its Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) value is more than 100,000 hours which is a multiple of the MTBF values of optical but also classical mechanical gyros bringing forth an outstanding long lifetime and long-term stability gyro compass for seagoing vessels.

As part of a gyro compass system Horizon MF provides the same advanced functions like heading selection, heading monitoring, automatic switch-over functions, an independent transmitting magnetic compass and individual speed error correction which are well known for Anschütz gyro compasses. Of course, Horizon MF seamlessly integrates with the Anschütz Standard 22 gyro compass.

Being the inventor of the mechanical gyro compass, Raytheon Anschütz is market leader for gyro compass technologies. Standard 22 is the world’s most popular gyro compass, sold and installed more than 12,000 times. Horizon MF complements the Raytheon Anschütz gyro compass portfolio.

Raytheon Anschütz GmbH is a subsidiary of Raytheon Company and a leading supplier of Navigation Systems and Integrated Bridge Systems for all kinds of commercial vessels, specialized vessels, mega yachts, and naval ships. More than 30,000 vessels worldwide are equipped with Raytheon Anschütz navigation systems and are being served by a global network of own subsidiaries and regional offices, e.g. in Shanghai, Singapore, Rio de Janeiro, and San Diego, and 200 specialized service stations round the clock.
