Raytheon, Defense Technology Work Group
On March 5th the working group for “Defense Technology” held its sixtieth conference at the premises of Raytheon Anschütz. The working group is an organization of companies from German federal state Schleswig-Holstein, who are engaged in the defense business. The stated aim of the working group is to point out on the technological, economical and security-political relevance of defense technology.
In order to share information, the working group gets together regularly. Based on its reputation as manufacturer of navigation systems for world-wide navies, Raytheon Anschütz was elected to organize the sixtieth conference, which certainly is a little jubilee. In the foreground were the dialogue with Mr. Dr. Johann Wadephul, who is the chairman of the parliamentary party CDU within the legislative assembly of Schleswig-Holstein, and the preparations for the eleventh “Wehrtechnik-Dialog”, which is a political conference, in Berlin mid of June.
Within its company presentation, Raytheon Anschütz has demonstrated its new multifunctional systems. The systems combine the functions of navigational radar, electronic sea chart and centralized navigation data display at one dedicated position on a ship’s bridge, providing access to all necessary information for navigation.
Within the defense technology segment in Germany, Raytheon Anschütz acts as a partner for national and international navies. Recently Raytheon Anschütz has been awarded to delivery navigation and steering systems for the second batch of U214 for die Korean Navy. In addition, Raytheon Anschütz will also supply most modern navigation technology, including multifunctional systems, for the future frigates of class F125 to the German Navy. For their corvette project K130 the German Navy has specified an Integrated Bridge solution for the first time. The system, delivered by Raytheon Anschütz, has achieved excellent reputation regarding system design and functionality.
