Raytheon Anschütz to provide integrated bridge systems for new

Raytheon Anschütz has been selected by BAE Systems to provide the Integrated Navigation and Bridge System (INBS) for the UK Royal Navy’s new Type 26 Global Combat Ships.

Raytheon Anschütz is under contract to deliver the Integrated Bridge and Navigation System for the first three ships, including customer-specific design and development, a land-based integration facility, and a wide range of services up to completion of sea trials. Raytheon Anschütz is providing the INBS as a major subcontractor to BAE Systems, the ship design authority and builder.

The proposed system will be an evolution of the INBS delivered to Type 45 destroyers, building on Raytheon Anschütz’s current generation of Synapsis INBS. The Synapsis INBS offers state-of-the-art technology and provides any function, anywhere, at any time to enhance situational awareness and provide easy adaptation to suit different and changing mission scenarios. Synapsis can also integrate tactical components to provide support to situational activities. Open architecture and a shared computing environment are key aspects of Synapsis and represent the cutting-edge of bridge systems interoperability, integration, scalability and performance. The architecture further simplifies logistics and reduces initial hardware costs as well as through-life sustainment.

Defined R&D tasks and software are provided by the UK-based Raytheon Naval Service & Support Center, working in close cooperation with the customer.

The Type 26 Global Combat Ship is planned to replace the existing Type 23 frigates of the UK Royal Navy. The shipbuilding program consists of up to 13 ships, with the first ship planned to enter service after 2020.

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.
