Raytheon Anschütz announces new NSX radar success
The German navigation system manufacturer Raytheon Anschütz reports that the new NautoScan NX (NSX) network radar transceivers have exceeded one hundred successful installations. With the launch of Raytheon Anschütz’s new NSX radar transceivers, state-of-the-art network radar technology has replaced the less effective analog data transmission alternative. Now, radar status and video are generated in the transceiver, shared by a digital interface and distributed through a redundant Dual Gigabit LAN to an unlimited number of PCs – a unique and patented feature of the new NSX radar. After the initial presentation of the NSX radar, the system underwent meticulous testing on shore and at sea, prior to the start of production. Tests indicated that the use of state-of-the-art technology simplified integration onboard and also validated that the innovative raw data processing led to excellent radar video and great flexibility in signal processing. One of the long-term sea trials was conducted aboard the container feeder “Vera Rambow.” With regard to the new radar’s performance, Captain Jürgen Rambke states: “The new radar is a significant step forward in radar technology. A brilliant radar video allows me to detect even the tiniest targets along the track.” The new NSX radar transceivers will be part of the Raytheon Anschütz exhibit at SMM 2016.
