The German navigation system integrator Raytheon Anschütz was selected by the German-based shipowner NSC to supply the latest generation of the IMO-certified Synapsis Integrated Navigation System (INS) to a series of 9,000 TEU Containership newbuildings.

The new containerships are built by Korea's Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction’s Subic Shipyard in Subic Bay, Philippines and are scheduled for entering service in 2014. The vessels will operate under a long-term charter of Compania Chilena de Navegacion Interoceanica (CCNI).

Raytheon Anschütz will supply Integrated Navigation from the Synapsis Intelligent Bridge Control series in accordance with IMO’s new INS Performance Standards as specified in MSC.252(83).

The bridge system will consist of four Synapsis Multifunctional Workstations, X- and S-Band Radar sensors, the adaptive and fuel-saving NautoPilot 5300, the new CAN-Bus based NautoSteer AS steering gear control system, and the Standard 22 gyro compass system. The scope is extended with the full package of navigation sensors as well as with the complete radio communication system.

“Delivering an IMO-certified Integrated Navigation System was surely a key reason for us being selected as the supplier to this project. Being the first manufacturer who gained IMO type approval for Integrated Navigation also underlines the innovative technology and the high standards we are used to deliver”, Jens Falkenberg, responsible Sales Manager at Raytheon Anschütz states.

Key characteristics of a Synapsis INS are sensors and bridge applications enabled to the Multifunctional Workstations according to the operational requirements, allowing a workstation to process tasks such as Radar, ECDIS, Conning, or third party applications simultaneously. Operators have central access to all the different applications by simply using the task switch on the screen.

The workstations are based on fanless PCs without moving mechanical components and are connected through an Ethernet ring network. A newly developed software framework offers the central processing of formerly local organized tasks such as data integrity monitoring for an optimized used of onboard sensor information, intelligent alert management for reduction of arising alerts as well as central handling of dimming and switching color palettes.

The vessels are specified to include latest and most efficient technologies. Apart from requiring compliance with the new INS Performance Standards for increased safety and simplified operation, the vessels will set standards with modern, efficient machinery and optimized hull form.
