Raytheon Anschütz is to supply integrated navigation systems (INS) to three car carriers built by the Croatian shipbuilder Uljanik Brodogradiliste.

The Pure Car and Truck Carriers (PCTCs) will be owned by Cayman Island based Auto Marine Transport and are scheduled to enter service at the end of 2016. The vessels, each with capacity for 7,000 cars, will operate under a long-term charter of Siem Car Carriers.

Raytheon Anschütz will supply INS from the Synapsis Intelligent Bridge Control series. The systems will feature four Synapsis NX Multifunctional Workstations for chart radar, ECDIS and conning, as well as a new generation of NautoScan NX radar transceivers. Another ECDIS will be supplied as dedicated route planning station.

The systems will also feature the adaptive NP 5000 autopilot system, a double Standard 22 gyro compass system, and a full package of navigation sensors, as well as a GMDSS A3 radio communication system.

The INS provides full integration of sensor data and other information such as AIS, NAVTEX, charts, radar, and alarms. Standard features include a common data back bone, a consistent common reference system (CCRS), an enhanced central target management, an intelligent central alert management, a system-wide health monitoring, or an advanced user setting management.
