effective command and control system

SYNTACS NX is an innovative, modular software application for command and control (C2). As a very effective system of systems, SYNTACS encompasses a common operating maritime picture, tactical navigation, mission planning, mission execution and near-shore combat capabilities.

SYNTACS correlates data of all organic and external sensor information and compiles a comprehensive dashboard for the operating picture. Sensors and systems integrated with SYNTACS include navigation or surveillance radars, sonars, video from electro-optical or visual surveillance systems, data from navigational and automation systems, and ballistic modules that control weapon stations.

SYNTACS mission solutions: extremely flexible and cost-effective

Anschütz offers navigation systems, combat systems, sensors and actuators combined in a one integrated package. The high system functionalitym, flexibility and overall cost-effectiveness of SYNTACS is achieved through consistent standardization on the base of commercial / military off the shelf (COTS/MOTS) equipement and a functional definition of the system by means of software applications and modules.

With SYNTACS, we provide customers with the basic capability for above-water warfare missions. This ranges from critical infrastructure protection to maritime interdiction operations, low to medium intensity combat management, but also the special capability for mine countermeasure missions.

58 SYNTACS systems for HSI-32 interceptor

Anschütz has delivered integrated mission systems for navigation and Command and Control (C2) for a total of 58 HSI-32 high-speed interceptors built by the French shipyard CMN, part of CMN NAVAL shipbuilding group, for the Royal Saudi Naval Forces. Click here for the full article.

SYNTACS for Indonesian MCM vessels

Abeking & Rasmussen has selected Anschütz to design and deliver an integrated solution for mine countermeasures (MCM), command and control, and navigation for two mine countermeasures vessels of the Indonesian Navy. The first of the two new vessels, which are among the most modern ships of their kind, is currently successfully completing its sea trials.  Click here for the full article.

Mission: Command the scene

Protecting critical infrastructure, harbors and coast lines is a major task for modern coast guards and navies. They need to be able to deploy fleets of fast and versatile units, such as patrol vessels, to accomplish their missions. Anschütz’ SYNTACS solution is tailor-made to meet even the most demanding functional and logistical requirements. Click here for the whole story.
