Anschütz: Transforming Navigation into Integrated Mission Systems for Diverse Naval Platforms

Anschütz transforms the integrated bridge system into an effective integrated mission system for small to fit the growing mission profiles of naval platforms like offshore patrol vessels, high-speed interceptors and minehunting vessels.The integrated mission system is equipped with a Synapsis NX navigation and bridge system, a SYNTACS NX command and control system, mission-specific software modules, and sensors and systems as required. After delivery, Anschütz can support customers with comprehensive after sales services including logistical services, system maintenance and technical service.

Anschütz is an experienced integrator of customised navigation and mission systems. As a solution partner, we accompany our customer throughout the entire process, from the project initiation and requirements specification through system design to implementation and after-sales services (including logistical services, system maintenance and technical service according to customer requirements).

Mission System Applications

Anschütz designs a tailor-made mission system within tight budgets, based on the SYNTACS NX command and control system, that effectively supports the crews on board through high mission performance, ease of use, and low training requirements. With SYNTACS, we provide customers with the basic capability for above-water warfare missions. This ranges from critical infrastructure protection to maritime interdiction operations, low to medium intensity combat management, but also the special capability for mine countermeasure missions.

SYNTACS for patrol boats / interceptors

SYNTACS compiles an operational picture from the data and presents the operator with a clearly structured dashboard for tactical navigation, mission planning and execution, as well as basic combat capability. Capabilities also include a solid-state radar for surveillance and navigation, alarm and guard zones with intercept capability, search and rescue, data links to share a common operational picture, and the integration of self-contained weapon systems.

SYNTACS for mine countermeasure (MCM) vessels

The SYNTACS MCM module provides the capabilities required to plan, execute, coordinate and monitor mine countermeasure missions. With the highest precision, suspicious objects are pinpointed on the tactical chart display in real time. They can then be shared with any workstation as well as with connected vessels or land stations for identification, situation assessment or warning. SYNTACS also integrates AUV and USV and sonar systems.

SYNTACS for offshore patrol vessels (OPV)

SYNTACS’ multifunctional, space-saving workplaces are suited for vessels with a short path between navigation and operation in the combat information centre, making SYNTACS smart for OPVs, navies or coast guards. It offers a comprehensive maritime picture with tailor-made features, alarm and guard zones, search and rescue, an integrated electro-opti- cal system and surveillance radars, helicopter guidance, tactical data links and mission data recording.
