Hermann Franz Joseph Hubertus Maria Anschütz-Kaempfe (3 October 1872 – 6 May 1931) was a German scientist and inventor. He was born in Zweibrücken and died in Munich.

In his quest to navigate to the North Pole by submarine, he became interested in the concept of the gyrocompass. In 1905 he founded, with Friedrich Treitschke, the first firm to manufacture gyroscopic navigation instruments, which he designed. One of his staff was Maximilian Schuler, who made the fundamental discovery of Schuler tuning.
