Brochure Available On Comsat General Marisat Terminal

A versatile onboard communications center, Marisat terminal model 3055M, is described in a new four-color brochure being offered by Comsat General Corporation of Washington, D.C. The 3055M terminal gives a ship or offshore facility at sea many of the same communications capabilities that businesses ashore have enjoyed for years. These capabilities include fast and dependable telex, telephone, facsimile, and data communications.

Compact and simple to operate, this terminal basically consists of an antenna unit installed above deck, and electronics/power units installed below deck, the latter generally in the radio room. The 3055M terminal offers the belowdeck electronics and power units in separate modular form, permitting greater flexibility for installation of the equipment in spacelimited quarters.

The model 3055M has been engineered and built to rigid specifications for reliable operation in a marine environment. It is based on the same proven design used in the model 3055 terminals that Comsat General has provided to the maritime industry since the beginning of commercial Marisat services in 1976. The 3055M also incorporates features designed to further improve reliability and performance.

For a copy of the brochure, write to Karen Creager, Comsat General Corporation, 950 L'Enfant Plaza, S.W., W a s h i n g t o n , D.C.
