Products Navigator Diver Held Sonar for Irish Navy The Irish Naval Service has acquired a NAVIGATOR Diver Held Sonar and Navigation System manufactured by Shark Marine Technologies Inc. of Ontario, Canada. The Irish Naval Service is the State?s Principal Seagoing Agency. The Naval Service exercises and upholds the States sovereignty and obligations over Ireland?s maritime jurisdiction which is an area 12 times larger than the island of Ireland. The Naval Service Diving Section (NSDS) is the primary State diving team, carrying out varied tasks for a number of State Agencies. Members of the NSDS used the NAVIGATOR system while training with the Royal Canadian Navy?s  eet diving unit. The divers believe the NAVIGATOR system equipped with forward-looking multi-beam sonar will assist them in their diving operations, in particular in search and recovery operations and underwater security. OSI to Deliver TDNS to Navy OSI Maritime Systems (OSI) an-nounced the award of a contract for the company?s Tactical Dived Navi- gation System (TDNS). The Systems will be delivered to ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems AB as part of a Royal Swedish Navy submarine upgrade program, and includes OSI?s subsur- face WECDIS software. Navies worldwide have made ECPINS their choice for WECDIS (Warship ECDIS) because of the advanced fea- tures and OSI?s extensive experience in warship navigation, OSI said. As a result, ECPINS is the  eet standard for many NATO and allied navies in- cluding Canada, Australia, U.K. and Denmark, the company added. SubConn Micro Connector Range SubConn Micro Connector Range SubConn introduced SubConn Micro ?G2? connectors to streamline its range of micro connectors. The SubConn Micro ?G2? connectors have enhanced seal- ing capability and use a uniform pin size and design. SubConn micro connec-tors were developed to suit the increasingly more compact design of underwater instruments, equipment and systems. SubConn micro connectors are available with 2 to 21 contacts in the standard in line version and in bulkhead versions, while low pro le connectors available with 3, 7 and 9 contacts. The streamlining of the range entails that all connector types are now available with a uniform pin size and design, featuring extensive rubber sealing of each pin along with three o-rings in all female connector sockets - for optimal water sealing capability. SubConn micro connectors are available in four standard shell sizes with con- tacts rated for 300 V at 5 to 10 A. All SubConn Micro bulkhead connectors come with numbered or color coded Te on leads.
