FROM NEWPORT NEWS—Tenneco's Newport News Shipbuilding,

Newport News, Va., recently delivered the nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser Mississippi (CGN-40) to the United States Navy. With the Mississippi, Newport News Shipbuilding has delivered 11 of the last 14 nuclear-powered ships received by the Navy since 1975. The

Mississippi is the shipyard's third Virginia-class cruiser and the

Navy's eighth nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser. Including the

Mississippi, the Navy now has 11 nuclear-powered surface ships— eight built by Newport News Shipbuilding. The Mississippi is 585 feet long, has a beam of 63 feet, and displaces about 11,000 tons. It carries two twin-armed batteries of antiaircraft missiles and antisubmarine rockets. The Mississippi also has 5-inch guns, long-range sonar, tor- pedoes, electronic warfare equipment, and a helicopter hangar. Its nuclear reactors contain enough energy for 10 years of operation with- out refueling. The shipyard now has under contract or construction 11 nuclear-powered vessels for the U.S. Navy—nine submarines, one cruiser, and one aircraft carrier—and four commercial vessels—two liquefied natural gas carriers (LNGs), and two ultra large crude car- riers (ULCCs).

A marine navigation seminar, jointly sponsored by Nav-Com In- corporated 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, com- mercial fishing interests, area shipyards, and the Corps of En- gineers. 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 con- junction 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 er- ror. 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-perform- ance depth recorders used for navigation and commercial fish- ing. Included among these were such units as the Simard EL, EQ,

EX, etc. Systems employing mul- tiple transducers, digital readouts, depth alarms, and bottom expan- sion were discussed.
