The German navigation system supplier Raytheon Anschütz was recently awarded a contract for the delivery of an integrated bridge and navigation system for a Fisheries Research Vessel, newbuilding 1378 at STX Finland.  The 62 meter long vessel is being built at STX Finland Rauma shipyard and will be owned by the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources of the Republic of Namibia. STX Finland has again selected Raytheon Anschütz to deliver the integrated bridge and navigation system, as well as the Dynamic Positioning System (DP) and a radio station according to GMDSS A3 for this advanced Fisheries Research Vessel. The new vessel will be equipped with two Radar and two ECDIS bridge workstations as well as with a Conning workstation for the navigation bridge, all connected through a standardized Ethernet network. The ECDIS forms together with the new autopilot NP 5100 an automatic track keeping system for high steering accuracy. For heading control, a redundant Standard 22 gyro compass system was delivered that interfaces with the Dynamic Positioning (DP) System on the aft bridge. A full package of navigation sensors, the bridge navigational watch alarm system (BNWAS) and wide-ranging communication equipment complete the scope of supply. Experienced local support for the shipyard, installation and setting to work will be provided by Raytheon Anschütz long-term Finnish partner AT Marine.
