New Navigation Technology to Show at Upcoming Nor Shipping

Press Release
Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Germany's Raytheon Anschütz to exhibit its new, IMO-certified Synapsis Intelligent Bridge Control system & maintenance-free gyro compass Horizon MF.

Horizon MF is Raytheon Anschütz’ new strap down compass system which uses Hemispherical Resonator Gyros to measure angular rates for heading calculation. Horizon MF comes as a maintenance-free sensor with an outstanding lifetime performance and is presented at Nor-Shipping for the first time ever. Horizon MF seamlessly integrates into a Standard 22 gyro compass system and into the Synapsis Intelligent Bridge Control system.

The Synapsis Intelligent Bridge Control system is the first – and so far only - Integrated Navigation System (INS) which is type approved according to the new IMO Performance Standard MSC.252(83).

The new Performance Standards require an Integrated Navigation System to integrate the tasks of collision avoidance, route monitoring, route planning, navigation control data display, status and data display as well as a centralized human-machine interface for alert management on multi-functional displays. INS also provides integration of sensor data and other information such as MSI, AIS, charts, radar, centralized alarm management, system status display and reliability indication for important equipment. These are only a few features that improve availability of function and data and thus help to make navigation safer as well as bridge operations simpler without additional cost.

Nor Shipping will be held in Oslo, June 2013.
