Navidyne Satellite Navigators Ordered By French Owner

Navidyne Corporation has received an order from Compagnie General Maritime (CGM), Paris, for seven ESZ-4000 satellite navigators for installation aboard CGM's modern container vessels.

The order was placed with Navidyne's French agent, Sperry Marine Systems, France.

The ESZ-4000 was selected by CGM after an extensive evaluation of the equipment at sea aboard the Atlantic Cognac, according to Navidyne president A. Clifford Barker.

Since its introduction to the merchant shipping market in 1978, the ESZ-4000 has been installed aboard more than 1,000 vessels throughout the world. A major reason for the product's widespread acceptance, according to Mr. Barker, is the ESZ-4000's operating simplicity. It provides direct readout of all navigation and routing information simultaneously on a CRT display.

Navidyne Corporation was founded in 1973 and is headquartered in Newport News, Ya. The company maintains a network of sales and service agents throughout the world.
