Raytheon Anschütz has a long tradition as a leader in navigation technology. The tradition goes back to the year 1904, when Dr. Hermann Anschütz-Kaempfe invented the gyro compass. In 1995, Raytheon Company has acquired the former Anschütz & Co. company. Today, Raytheon Anschütz has an excellent reputation as a reliable provider of Integrated Navigation Systems (INS) and nautical equipment such as gyro compass, autopilot, radar and electronic sea charts (ECDIS) for the shipping and shipbuilding market and worldwide navies. Our goal is to support customers – now and in future – with customized solutions at low lifecycle cost, reliable technology and technical expertise “round the clock”. Raytheon Anschütz employs about 570 people at the headquarters in Kiel, Germany, from where the important cooperating processes of research and development, production, quality management, project management, service coordination, and technical support are controlled for all products. The employees in Kiel, Hamburg and Bremerhaven, together with colleagues in subsidiaries in China, Singapore, Brazil, Panama, USA and UK, and with our worldwide network of sales- and service representatives, serve more than 35,000 vessels, which are underway with navigation systems made by Raytheon Anschütz.
