Performance Optimised for Tracking and Anti-Clutter Processing
Raytheon Anschütz announced on 1 October that it has launched a revolutionary new radar software relevant to the full range of naval vessels, from patrol boats to large surface 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 optimised performance in tracking and anti-clutter processing. In order to support special naval tasks and missions, the company has incorporated tactical and advanced naval features into the software, making Naval Radar NX an effective application for both safe navigation and tactical operations combined in a single user interface.
Naval Radar NX is IMO type-approved in combination with several market-leading navigation and surveillance radars, in order to cater for demanding operational requirements as well as fleet-wide commonality and logistics. The naval features include 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 radar was developed in accordance with human-centered design principles, leveraging the expertise of experienced marine radar users and specialised user interface designers. The modular software design also provides flexibility for future upgrades in order to adapt to respective mission needs.
“With Naval Radar NX we offer a high resolution 360° navigation and situational 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,” commented Raytheon Anschütz Segment Manager for Naval Combatants, André Moritz.
