The MX 1102 from Magnavox was the first commercially avail- able satellite navigation system to use a microprocessor instead of a computer. With its advanced built-in program, the MX 1102 is so easy to use that it requires only a few hours of operator fa- miliarization. The receiver, mi- croprocessor, and CRT data dis- play are housed in a single table- top, bulkhead, or overhead mount- ed unit that is no larger than a portable TV set. A small antenna/ preamp mounts above deck in any relatively unobstructed location.

Navigation information is clear- ly displayed in digital form re- quiring no special charts or man- ual computations. Conventional

SatNav data such as latitude, longitude, and Greenwich Mean

Time (GMT) is supplemented with such information as distance trav-

Rust is the cancer.

Fluid Film is the answer. •^•EUREKA CHEmiCAlCOmPflnV eled, heading to steer, great cir- cle and rhumb line courses, dis- tance to destination, and time of next (and future) satellite fixes, all of which may be displayed up- on operator command.

The MX 1102 was the first to have the outstanding feature of programmed tracking. This fea- ture enables the satellite naviga- tion system to distinguish be- tween conflicting satellite signals and to lock only on signals from the satellite offering the best nav- igation fix. The result is about 10 percent more usable fixes, which occur at 40 to 90-minute inter- vals anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. Between fixes, the system automatically dead-reck- ons and compensates for set and drift.

The system self-tests every two hours and, in the event of failure, identifies the easily replaced cir- cuit module responsible for the malfunction. The self-test proce- dure may also be initiated man- ually.

Specifications for Class Nav N certification by Det norske Veri- tas have been met in the design and testing of the MX 1102. These include demonstrated accuracy [static accuracy to 0.05 nautical mile (RMS), and underway to 0.1

NM (RMS)], comprehensive en- vironmental testing, routing self- test of all circuits, continuous monitoring of all functions, fail- ure mode identification, and re- liability analysis.

Micrologic is now delivering the new ML-2000 Loran C Nav- igator, said to represent a major advance in Loran C technology.

The Chatsworth, Calif., company has produced Loran C equipment for commercial vessels since 1974.
