Raytheon Opens Maritime Subsidiary
SAN DIEGO, May 29 (UPI) — Raytheon has launched a maritime navigation systems subsidiary in the United States for government, military and commercial customers.
The subsidiary launched in San Diego, Calif., is Raytheon Anschuetz USA LLC, part of Raytheon Anschutz GmbH in Germany.
“In January 2012, Raytheon Anschutz returned to the U.S. navigation systems market with the establishment of a San Diego-based regional sales office. Now, we are taking the next step to becoming America’s new center of navigation excellence,” said Frank Christophersen, president of the new subsidiary. “With this new company, we offer dedicated local support for U.S.-based customers, with greater flexibility, and set the foundation to expand our infrastructure for new services and spares support.”
Maritime products to be supported by the new subsidiary include gyro compasses, autopilots and steering controls, radars, electronic chart display and information systems, as well as integrated bridge systems for new vessels and retrofit projects.
Technical advice and pre-sale consultancy on International Maritime Organization recommendations, class requirements and operational needs will also be provided.
