Literature Published On Navigation Computer System From Trimble

Trimble Navigation recently introduced a powerful new navigation computer system, CS-1 that incorporates graphics display and printout capability. The CS-1 can be used for piloting, position monitoring, trip logging, trip planning, and a variety of special computations including true wind, set and drift, distance, course, time and speed made good to the next waypoint.

The CS-1 stores 500 waypoints, 20 trip plans, and 500 obstructions/ hazards. The unit provides a variety of real time visual graphic displays of ship's position relative to course and hazards.

Audio alarms for cross track error, distance to hazards, and waypoints are user programmable.

The CS-1 stores magnetic variation worldwide and automatically presents magnetic headings for specific locations. Permanent trip records can be printed and/ or stored on magnetic tape automatically at user-selected intervals or on command.

The CS-1 consists of a Trimble Model 10A High Accuracy Loran- C, a Hewlett Packard Model 85 computer, and Trimble-designed software. Users may provide their own HP-85 computer.
