Magnavox Announces New Integrated Navigation System

Magnavox Research Laboratories has announced the availability of its new Model 200 Integrated Navigation System for Offshore Geophysical Exploration Systems.

The system integrates Loran-C and Doppler Sonar/Gyrocompass information to provide a more precise dead-reckoning capability for offshore use.

The LoranJC addition improves performance by providing a precise measure of ship's velocity, particularly in deepwater areas where doppler sonar equipments operate in a water track mode. Magnavox can provide these systems in a stand-alone configuration or integrated with systems already utilizing Magnavox satellite navigation.

The principal advantage of Loran- C in bounding position error growth due to unknown ocean currents when operating with the sonar in the water track mode. The overall results are that in good loran coverage regions there is no accuracy degradation in deep water as compared with shallow water systems.
