Raytheon Subsidiary Team Wins 1st Military Navigation System Deal; Lueder Hogrefe Comments

Raytheon logo_EbizA team comprising of a Raytheon subsidiary and Italian marine automation provider Seastema has won a contract to provide an integrated bridge and navigation system to Italy’s coast guard for two future patrol vessels.

This will represent the system’s first military application under the partnership between Raytheon Anschuetz and Seastema, Raytheon said Tuesday.

Raytheon says it designed the IBNS to integrate with Seastema’s SEAS-Navy naval automation platform and also incorporate radar technology, a trackpilot and a suite of navigation sensors.

The system also uses one workstation for users to access a chart display and information system as well as ship control data, Raytheon says.

Lueder Hogrefe, general manager of Raytheon Anschuetz, said the IBNS intends to meet the Italian military’s requirements for both small and large marine platforms and also work on commercial vessels.

The Anschuetz-Seastema team has previously delivered bridge systems to commercial mega yacht customers.
