Ship designer VARD has contracted German Raytheon Anschütz for the supply of a Synapsis integrated navigation system (INS) to an advanced research vessel that is being built in India.

The Synapsis INS is part of a large equipment and electrical installation package, which VARD Electro AS will provide to Cochin Shipyard Ltd.

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 system manages all routes and charts, sharing data across the network.

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.

Raytheon Anschütz’s Norway-based partner Syberg AS will be responsible for the supply and commissioning.
