“With the expansion of Raytheon Anschütz into the United States, we’ve created a US-based team that leverages the navigation expertise of both Raytheon Company and Raytheon Anschütz,” said Raytheon Anschutz’s Frank Christophersen, vice president, Sales USA. “The office will become America’s new center of navigation excellence, providing the full scope of navigation technology and best-in-class service and support for shipyards and ship owners.”


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. The opening of the new office signals the return of the navigation business of Raytheon and Anschütz to the USA.
