Raytheon Company announced the launch of its new subsidiary, Raytheon Anschuetz USA LLC, located in San Diego, Calif.
According to the company, Raytheon Anschuetz USA LLC aims to reinforce customer care and support for Raytheon Anschütz navigation systems in the United States
for commercial ship owners and shipyards as well as government entities, including the Coast Guard, Military Sealift Command, Navy and Army.
“In January 2012, Raytheon Anschütz returned to the U.S. navigation systems market with the establishment of a San Diego-based regional sales office. Now, we are taking the next step to becoming America
’s new center of navigation excellence,” said Frank Christophersen, president of the new subsidiary. “With this new company, we offer dedicated local support for U.S.-based customers, with greater flexibility, and set the foundation to expand our infrastructure for new services and spares support.”
The new company supports the full portfolio of Raytheon Anschütz’s navigation components and solutions, including gyro compasses, autopilots and steering controls, radars, Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems and complete integrated bridge systems, for both new ships and retrofit projects.
In addition, the company provides technical advice and presale consultancy regarding International Maritime Organization (IMO) recommendations, class requirements and operational needs, as well as an array of lifecycle support services.
