Paper On Adaptive Steering Module Available From Sperry

The Sperry Division of Sperry Corporation, Great Neck, N.Y., is offering free literature on its new Adaptive Steering Module (ASM), designed to achieve fuel savings on large commercial ships.

The literature is a reprint of a Sperry paper given to the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers meeting in Montreal, Canada. The paper discusses the development, operation, testing and documented benefits of the Sperry ASM.

The ASM is an electronics package which automatically reduces r u d d e r motion under varying speeds, sea states and load conditions, thereby reducing rudder drag and increasing fuel efficiency.

The ASM is used in conjunction with Sperry's Universal Gyropilot, and resulted in fuel savings of up to 2.98 percent, according to the paper.
