$250,000 Order For Atlas Fishing Systems —Literature Available

Krupp Atlas-Elektronik Division of Krupp International Inc., N. J. announced the delivery of Atlas microprocessor-controlled fish-finding systems worth $250,000, for installation on the Arcturus, a new trawler/crabber vessel built for Jeff Hendricks and Associates of Anacortes, Wash.

Constructed by Dakota Creek Industries Inc., the 40-meter-long vessel has already successfully completed her first operational venture in the Bering Sea, catching Alaskan pollack.

Among the Atlas systems fitted is an advanced 950 sonar with an operating range of 4km and its high-definition 90° sector illumination, and a series of vertical fish-finding systems, the 611, 781 and 871, interfaced with newly developed Atlas 312 color echoscope.

The Atlas Dolog-12D doppler log allows precision monitoring and control of the vessel's rate of turn and longitudinal and transverse speed. Speed measurement is derived with an accuracy of 0.2 percent and used to calculate sea current speed and direction, allowing the skipper to align 'Arcturus' and its gear with the current.
