MARCH 27, 2017 — Kiel, Germany, headquartered Raytheon Anschütz reports that Vard Holding Limited,and its subsidiary Vard Electro AS, have selected Raytheon Anschütz’ Synapsis Integrated Navigation System or a new research vessel. The Synapsis INS is part of a large equipment and electrical installation package that Vard Electro AS will provide to India’s Cochin Shipyard Ltd, which is building the ship.

The INS consists of a total of six workstations for chart radar, ECDIS and conning, all connected through a redundant ethernet-based local area network (LAN). The INS manages all routes and charts, sharing data across the network. The INS takes over all central tasks and services, including consistent data handling and data distribution (CCRS and central target management), system health monitoring and switch over, alert management, and user settings. This ensures a consistent presentation of data or alarms for display and control from any individual workstation.

Raytheon Anschütz will also deliver S-band- and X-band network-based radar sensors, the top-of-the-range NP 5000 autopilot, and a fully redundant inertial navigation system.

Synapsis INS is type-approved according to IMO’s new Performance Standards for Integrated Navigation Systems and meets the highest performance requirements for redundancy, safety and ease of operation.

The INS will be delivered in compliance with the DNVGL notation NAUT-AW. The Synapsis INS was sold to Vard by Raytheon Anschütz’s long-standing, Norway-based partner, Syberg AS, which will be responsible for its supply and commissioning.
