The Next Level Navigation Systems
05. May 2017
Raytheon Anschütz presents a suite of the latest navigation systems, including the new SYNAPSIS NX Integrated Navigation System (INS) and the new ECDIS NX, the world's first user-defined ECDIS.
SYNAPSIS NX is type-approved according to the INS performance and test standards. The system provides intelligent integration and advanced functions to reduce operator's workload and increase safety in navigation, such as sensor integrity monitoring, enhanced target management, alert management, and redundancy management. Following a holistic system concept with standardized hardware and network components, SYNAPSIS NX also offers the customer a never-before-possible flexibility in concept and design of the bridge system, and ensures multi-redundancy and a maximum in situation awareness.
Raytheon Anschütz also launches the new SYNAPSIS ECDIS NX software, which has been designed from scratch under continuous user participation and workshops with navigation officers. The development process explicitly considered the human element in all stages during software design in order to meet the expectations of the operators and to provide intuitive support for their daily tasks and use cases for unsurpassed ECDIS operation and higher navigational safety. ECDIS NX comes in a state-of-the-art design and stands out with a clear-structured display, consistent operation concepts and intuitive interaction patterns such as touch operation, drag`n`drop, pins and handles or a context-sensitive help dialogue. ECDIS NX also includes smart functions for route monitoring and route planning - such as wizard-guided route planning with a self-explaining route manager, ETA assistant, curved heading line, or look ahead zones with graphical indication of danger.
