Backed by Raytheon’s infrastructure and technical expertise, Raytheon Anschütz’s US operation is dedicated to providing customers with direct access to technical advice and pre-sale consultancy regarding International Maritime Organization (IMO) recommendations, class requirements and operational needs, as well as an array of lifecycle support services.

 

After sales, Raytheon Anschutz’s services network spans U.S. coastlines through a large spare parts and service coordination center as well as more than 50 service points, providing customers timely, reliable service and predictable results. Outside of the U.S., Raytheon Anschütz maintains a network of more than 200 service stations and spare parts depots worldwide.

 

Raytheon Anschütz navigation systems are installed on more than 30,000 ships worldwide, making the company to a leader in bridge and navigation systems supply.
