Sperry Gets $2 Million In Orders For Collision Avoidance Systems

The Sperry Division of Sperry Corporation recently received orders for 50 CAS II collision avoidance systems, totaling more than $2 million, from several Japanese shipowners, bringing the total number of Sperry collision avoidance systems sold worldwide to more than 500. The CAS II system was introduced by Sperry in September 1979.

Sanko Steamship Co. Ltd. of Tokyo was the largest single purchaser of the CAS II systems, ordering 30 of the 50 units after conducting a three-month at-sea test of the system aboard a 172,- 000-dwt oil tanker. All the systems will be installed on oil tankers.

The orders came through Tokyo Reiki Co. Ltd., an affiliate of Sperry Division in the Far East.

The Sperry CAS II system is a compact cabinet which uses stateof- the-art microprocessor-based electronics, providing simple and reliable operation even under adverse environmental conditions.

The system also uses built-in test equipment (BITE) to allow rapid localization and repair of faults.

Sperry offers training to shipboard personnel on the operation and repair of the system. In addition, Sperry provides a worldwide network of more than 250 service centers with trained engineers for servicing Sperry marine products.
