Raytheon Anschütz navigation system for Canadian Coast Guard newbuild

Raytheon Technologies’ subsidiary, Raytheon Anschütz, has supplied an integrated navigation system (INS) for an offshore oceanographic science vessel (OOSV) currently under construction for the Canadian Coast Guard at Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards.

Thales Canada was selected by Seaspan, the Canadian Government’s chosen non-combat shipbuilder, as electronic systems integrator for the project and the INS has now successfully completed a factory acceptance test. The unit will be integrated with the command and control system and the integrated platform management system.

Kevin Overmoyer, business development and sales manager for Raytheon Anschütz in Canada, commented: “The delivery marks another important milestone in our long-term partnership with Thales Canada. Together with Thales, we can provide the Canadian Coast Guard with a reliable and highly efficient bridge system, customised to support the demanding missions of the OOSV.”
