Raytheon Anschütz has been selected as the supplier of the integrated navigation system to new Limited Editions Amels 199 superyachts. Amels first introduced the new Amels 199 yacht at the 2009 Monaco Yacht Show and is currently constructing the first ship in its Vlissingen shipyard in Holland.
The Dutch system integrator Alewijnse Marine Systems B.V. is responsible for the complete electrical system design and outfitting of the AMELS 199 motor yachts. Based on a cooperation agreement, which has been entered in 2008, Alewijnse teams with Raytheon Anschütz and integrates the INS as seamless part of their larger electrical systems onboard.
The navigation systems supplied to the Amels 199 yachts are of Raytheon Anschütz’ new Synapsis Bridge Control series. The mega yachts will be equipped with four scalable multifunctional workstations which allow central access to the nautical functions of (chart-) radar, ECDIS and conning from any workplace on the bridge as needed by the owner. Furthermore, Raytheon Anschütz provides the navigation alert management which interfaces with the Alewijnse alarm monitoring system.
All Synapsis workstations provide a consistent and simple operating philosophy. To contribute to an intelligent use of sensor information, Raytheon Anschütz has fitted the navigation system with an integrated data quality management that only provides the most reliable set of sensor data to all the bridge workstations. The workstations store relevant data independently to ensure highest availability of functions, but share information such as targets, tracks or charts automatically.
The Conning as part of the workstations features a central page with graphical sensor data indications. This allows saving installations of indication units on the bridge desk and contributes to a seamless bridge design. For the bridge wings, two further conning stations are configured to support the Captain with all needed ship information while manoeuvring.
All ship’s steering positions are fitted with comfortable take-over function and alarm reset button. Together with the multifunctional workstations this empowers the crew to have full control from all over the bridge system. Raytheon Anschütz will deliver NautoSteer AS steering controls, which include advanced features for safe steering, such as integrated wire-break and steering failure monitoring. For automatic steering, Raytheon Anschütz provides the new NautoPilot 5000. NP 5000 not only forms the track control system together with ECDIS, but is also an eye-catcher thanks to its large graphical touch display.
Raytheon Anschütz offers a live demonstrate the Synapsis Bridge Control system together with the new generation steering control systems at the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show. The Raytheon Anschütz exhibit is located at stand QP66 / Parvis Piscine
