Simrad. A trusted name at sea.

The Navigation Computer that started it all... from Simrad, naturally.

Simrad's CC-2 Navigation Computer gives complete position, steering and piloting information in an easy-to-use system. It is still the only separately packaged Loran C navigation com- puter. and can accept input data from any Simrad Loran C receiver.

The CC-2 can repeat Loran C time- difference numbers, convert Loran C position to latitude longitude, and will store up to nine "waypoints' or des- tinations. It continuously computes distance, time to destination and bear- ing from your present position to any of the nine selected destinations or waypoints. Italso computes speed over the ground, course made good and off-course "cross track error" for steering adjustments. Lat/Long posi- tion is read out to tenths of seconds (ten feet) and off-track deviations can be read out in hundredths of a nauti- cal mile. The computer is so flexible, you can even use it to solve separate time/course/distance problems while it continues to update actual naviga- tion data internally.

New digital recording sounders meet IMCO requirements.

Simrad now offers two economical navigation recording echosounders that meet IMCO recommendations for merchant vessels. In addition to show- ing a well-defined bottom on re- cording paper, the systems have inde pendent digital depth indicators and depth alarms. The Simrad ED-161 has four recording ranges from 0-25 to 550 fathoms. The ED 162 has 0-30. 0-75, and 0 150 foot recording ranges for navigating in shallower waters, plus a 0-1500 foot deep range. The op tional IR 201 Remote Digital Analog

Indicator displays depth in feet, meters and fathoms.

These systems are also designed as replacements for existing older sys- tems. Due to Simrad's special engi- iTiixij < } ( ) • ;7 i''LLLlJJ. neering, some vessels can be retro fitted from inside the hull without having to dry dock.

Ship's radar from Simrad.

Ten and twenty KVV radar models from

Simrad are building a reputation for extra fine resolution that you can count on. It is natural to think about long range use. and they do have six ranges from '/-m.m. to 48 n.m.. with an addi- tional .'•!() to 78 n.m. setting on the 20

KVV model. However, they really out- perform competition at extremely close distances. At the 'A n.m. range, they provide the unusual resolution vou need to pick out small boats and channel markers in a dense fog. And that's the most critical test for any radar. Choice of four or six foot an tenna. Variable range marker (VRM) w ith digital readout, and early warning target alarm options are available. I-or smaller vessels, Simrad's ONX 6 (5KW) with choice < >f 3 or 4 for it slotted array antenna, and all electronic scope sweep, is recommended.

Loran C means Simrad.

Throughout the world, skippers have learned to trust

Simrad's Loran C reliability and accuracy.. .and to rely on

Simrad's sales,installation and service network in more than 450 ports throughout the world.

Our "New Generation" LC-123 now has many more advanced features, including signal integration that sets a new standard in readout accuracy. With its "touch pad" keyboard, our new LC-112 provides high performance at an economical price. Both models have been designed and manufactured to meet or exceed all Minimum Per- formance Standards (MPS) of the Radio Technical Com- mission for Marine Services (RTCM), adopted 12/20/77, including Addendum #1 dated 7/19/79, as endorsed by the U.S. Coast Guard for use aboard vessels over 1600 gross tons when calling at ports in the Continental U.S.

This is a legal requirement for ship operation in U.S. waters.

Simrad's Loran was recently tested against eleven other receivers by an independent testing laboratory under con- tract to the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

Since the LC-112 had not been introduced yet, it couldn't be included in the test. However, in long range tracking tests, three units were judged superior... Simrad's LC-123,

Simrad's older LC-204 and another manufacturer's re- ceiver that costs over $2,000 more than an LC-123.

Several competitors complimented Simrad by copying our LC-123, but evidently they still couldn't match Simrad's performance and reliability. Our ten years of experience in developing Loran C technology is important to you.
