Raytheon Wins Contract with Royal Navy

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Raytheon Systems Limited, Harlow together with Raytheon Anschütz has been awarded the contract for the In-Service Support (ISS) of the Integrated Bridge and Navigation Systems for the Royal Navy’s new Type 45 Daring class destroyers . Raytheon Anschütz will be responsible for total maintenance and repair of these systems on board the vessels until at least 2016.

The Type 45 destroyers are being built by the British company BVT Surface Fleet, who also selected Raytheon for In-Service Support. The contract guarantees the Royal Navy a maximum uptime of their new ships at predictable operation costs, depending on performance-based payments and a volume control for ship usage. This is the first time that a supplier has been contracted for Integrated Bridge and Navigation In-Service Support for the Royal Navy.

The signed ISS contract is to be seen as an all-inclusive contract which covers availability of service and spares on a 24/7 basis as well as customer-specific obsolescence management, program management, and logistical services.

Raytheon Anschütz will make use of many years of experience gained In-Service Support for the commercial and military fleets utilizing not only an experienced and well embedded worldwide service network, but also a new local service team based in Portsmouth to support the vessels and manage the spare parts depot at the Portsmouth Naval base.

Furthermore, a reference system at its headquarters in Kiel will enable the company to provide trouble shooting, obsolescence and development support, as well as training for crewing members and technicians.

Raytheon Anschütz was chosen to supply the Integrated Navigation Systems for the Type 45 destroyers in 2000. Each vessel is equipped with six multifunctional workstations including radar and ECDIS functions as well as with the gyro and steering package and a complete set of navigational sensors. Apart from its worldwide service capabilities and its experience in customer-specific ISS, the satisfactorily delivery of the navigation systems was a prerequisite for the ISS contract award to Raytheon.
