In view of an increasing demand for security of merchant ships and maritime trade, Raytheon Anschütz, a German-based manufacturer of Integrated Bridge Systems, has developed shipborne security solution  ShipGuard. ShipGuard will be presented for the first time ever at SMM 2014 in Hamburg.

ShipGuard efficiently integrates the vessels existing navigation systems such as AIS and radar with a suite of commercial surveillance cameras. ShipGuard is available as a stand-alone system to upgrade existing or bridge system installations or as a functional task on Raytheon Anschütz’ Synapsis multifunctional workstations.

With ShipGuard, shipowners can increase vessel security and maritime situational awareness onboard, Raytheon Anschütz said. In its basic configuration ShipGuard offers the crew early detection and identification of approaching contacts, intuitive classification and efficient alarm zone monitoring as well as easy monitoring of own and friendly units such as support vessels or tender boats. Built on the flexible and advanced Synapsis system architecture, ShipGuard can be easily configured and integrated with individual components to meet individual requirements best.

ShipGuard can be used onboard various ships for multiple purposes including:
•perimeter protection, privacy protection and tender tracking solutions onboard megayachts;  
•oil rig and wind farm protection tasks performed by offshore or wind farm service ships; and
•antipiracy solutions required by cruise and cargo ships.

For safety-sensitive markets, ShipGuard can be easily enhanced with advanced options such as Geo-Tiff maps, additional radars or sonars, a marine small target tracker, data links for ship-to-ship or ship-to-shore data exchange, integrated search light control or even integrated control of effectors such as acoustic devices, water cannons or laser dazzlers.
