Completing ‘The Next Level’: Synapsis NX at SMM

At SMM 2018, Raytheon Anschütz unveils a new suite of navigational software, designed for intuitive operation and enhanced with smart functionality. The new Radar NX and ECDIS NX software complete the Synapsis NX series of innovative bridge navigation systems.

Visitors to the Raytheon Anschütz stand at SMM see the new design introduced with Synapsis NX at glance. Modern, consistent and fancy user interfaces, together with a lean and ergonomic bridge design, dominate the new Synapsis NX integrated navigation system (INS).

Raytheon Anschütz developed the new software in an agile development process leveraging the expertise of experienced navigators and specialized user interface designers. A new stack of software technologies enables a modular system design and provides the foundation for further development.

Jan Lütt, Director of Product Management at Raytheon Anschütz, says:
“Our goal was to make our software most intuitive to use and helpful for navigators. In times of ongoing digitalization, we found this as a key prerequisite before implementing further features. Moreover, we also wanted to find out how we can support use cases of navigators best today and in future. We have just started the journey and will develop Synapsis NX further towards a smarter system offering efficiency in operation and assistance for the crew in demanding situations.”

ECDIS NX simplifies routines aboard. Users can decide to hide panels with indications or operation controls to have a maximized chart window in support of route monitoring tasks. As another example, route planning becomes a wizard-guided process and utilizes intuitive principles such as drag-and-drop for waypoints. Other feature enhancements comprehensive voyage planning tools including interfaces to ship-shore data exchange.

Radar NX introduces a new tracker that delivers optimized performance in tracking and anti-clutter processing. User benefits from a high situation awareness and a fast interpretation of the radar picture. An advanced radar video merge feature is available as an option.

Any of the new Synapsis NX application also includes highly integrated INS functions, such as radar/AIS target management, alert management or sensor integrity monitoring as a standard.

Below the surface, Synapsis NX is based on standard hardware and network components in accordance with latest IEC standards such as 61162-450 Light Weight Ethernet.

The system architecture includes implemented redundancies and grants scalability and flexibility to realize individual configurations and designs. If required, this can include hardware installation in a 19” rack.
