Nav-Com And Simrad Co-Host Navigation Seminar

A marine navigation seminar, jointly sponsored by Nav-Com Incorporated of North Lindenhurst, Long Island, N.Y., and Simrad, Incorporated of Armonk, N.Y., was attended by representatives of major shipping companies, tanker fleets, tug operations, commercial fishing interests, area shipyards, and the Corps of Engineers.

The seminar, held on July 20, was presented by Gil Nelson, vice president of marketing for Simrad. Also representing Simrad were Bjorn Carlsen, president, and Walter Perlowski, product manager.

The seminar covered the latest new product advances in Loran-C navigation equipment, including Simrad's new CC-2 Navigation Computer. The CC-2 Navigation Computer may be used in conjunction with any of Simrad's Loran-C receivers to provide a digital direct readout of latitude and longitude, bearing to sail, time and distance to destination, true ground speed, and cross track error.

All information is derived from the Loran-C receiver. The computer may also be used for other navigation computations.

Other products presented in the seminar included high-performance depth recorders used for navigation and commercial fishing.

Included among these were such units as the Simard EL, EQ, EX, etc. Systems employing multiple transducers, digital readouts, depth alarms, and bottom expansion were discussed.
