|

Naval system integrator Raytheon Anschütz announced a new radar software for naval vessels, from patrol boats to large combatants.

Synapsis Naval Radar NX is a state-of-the-art navigational radar software enhanced with tactical features. It is based on a core IMO radar display that offers optimized performance in tracking and anti-clutter processing.

Raytheon Anschütz has implemented tactical and advanced naval features into the radar software, making Naval Radar NX an effective application for both, safe navigation and tactical operation, realized within a single user interface.

André Moritz, Segment Manager for Naval Combatants at Raytheon Anschütz, said, "With Naval Radar NX we offer a high resolution 360 degree navigation and situation awareness radar, which improves the capabilities of a naval platform a lot. Our customers can operate any radar related task from the same display, from navigation to surveillance, policing, or search and rescue. Customers can also save space, cost and training effort for the crew."

Naval Radar NX is IMO type-approved in combination with various market leading navigation and surveillance radars in order to support demanding operational requirements as well as fleet-wide commonality and logistics.

The naval features include, among others, helicopter guidance, stationing manager, intercept point calculation, alert and guard zones, and tactical target management. Naval Radar NX also features an advanced video merging function, which integrates the video of multiple radar transceivers into a single, unobstructed radar video.

The modular software design provides flexibility for future upgrades in order to adapt to respective mission needs.

The radar was developed in accordance with human centered design principles leveraging the expertise of experienced marine radar users and specialized user interface designers.
