Raytheon advances with INBS for Type 26
Raytheon Anschütz is on contract to deliver the INBS, including customer-specific design and development, a land-based integration facility, and a wide range of services through completion of sea trials.
To date, several risk reduction activities, the completion of the critical design review for the INBS, and the completion of radar integration trials with a Terma 6000 radar in order to provide a solid-state IMO-compliant, I-band navigational radar, have been achieved. The company is also working to integrate government furnished equipment items.
Most recently, a fully functional navigation system has been commissioned for the land-based integration and test facility. This navigation bridge subset of equipment has been successfully integrated into the customer-provided shared computing environment test infrastructure.
Richard Waldron, defense sales manager, Raytheon Anschütz, said: 'All these milestones have been achieved by the Raytheon Anschütz team of experienced experts working in close collaboration with a team-orientated customer, BAE Systems. We thank the whole team and look forward to the next achievements on the Type 26 programme.'
The Synapsis INBS provides enhanced situational awareness, and enables adaptation to suit different and changing mission scenarios. Key aspects are open architecture and a shared computing environment to enhance bridge systems interoperability, integration, scalability and performance.
