New Consulting Firm

Formed By Thomas

Thomas Keenan, president, and

David Walton, vice president, have established International

Bob Young recently joined the technical staff along with Robert

The Los Angeles Metropolitan

Section of The Society of Naval

Architects and Marine Engineers gathered for a recent meeting aboard the converted cruise ship

Princess Louise berthed in Los

Angeles Harbor. The subject of the evening's technical paper, "Radar — A New Approach to

Level Gauging," is as current to ship technology as the joggled and riveted frames and webs of the Princess Louise are archaic.

Gorjan Martensson of Saab-

Scania prepared and presented the timely paper to acquaint those present with his company's solu- tion to the problem of accurately and reliably measuring liquid lev- els in ship cargo tanks. He began by outlining the various measur- ing systems in current use, and detailed the qualities and defici- encies he felt were inherent to each. The author went on to de- tail the theory of the Saab-Scania radar system that, according to

Mr. Martensson, overcomes the problems of existing systems by limiting the incursion of the de- vice into the harsh environment of tanks to radio frequency waves.

The author concluded his presen- tation by candidly describing the trials associated with developing a new system for shipboard use.

Shown with model of the Princess Louise during recent meeting of SNAME Los

Angeles Metropolitan Section are (L to R): Charles Heil, Sections representative;

Gorjan Martensson, author; George Stiehl, vice chairman; and Ned Stewart, chair- man of the Section.
