Raytheon Introduces New
Remote Display For Speed
Log And Depth Sounder —Literature Available
Raytheon Ocean Systems Compa- ny of East Providence, R.I., has introduced an inexpensive, micro- processor-based remote display de- signed for maximum compatibility with the company's established Fa- thometer® depth sounder and speed log product lines.
The rugged display is lightweight and compact for transportability. It features a corrosion-resistant case and has an ac/dc option. It will enhance the performance capabili- ties of Raytheon's DSF-6000 digital survey Fathometer and navigational speed log, and perform well in con- junction with other commercially available marine products featuring a compatible interface.
The new instrument has a large liquid crystal display clearly view- able in surroundings ranging from bright sunlight to complete dark- ness. Software customization is available, and a "daisy chain" capa- bility for multiple display require- ments is built in. A complete inter- nal self-test is accomplished auto- matically each time it is turned on.
Remote installation can, under certain conditions, be as far away as 1,000 feet, with mounting on a bulk- head, tabletop, panel, or overhead.
The unit is engineered to military specifications for vibration, and can function in 100-percent humidity and in temperatures ranging from 0 to 70 C (32-248 F).

Maritime Reporter/Engineering News
The U.S.S. Laffey had been decommissioned and permanently docked at Patriots Point Naval and
Maritime Museum, Charleston, South Carolina.
Sea water and salt air were taking their toll on the deck and superstructure.
It was the job of Maintenance Supervisor George R.
Maynard to restore and then maintain the ship.
To remove the rust and prepare the surface for priming, he received sandblasting estimates ranging from $80,000 to $125,000.
Using $600 worth of CHESTERTON RUST
TRANSFORMER he was able to prepare a rust-free surface ready for primer coat. The problems of sandblasting were eliminated, allowing work to be performed by in-house personnel.
The final coatings have resisted undercutting and the ship is today attractive and easier to maintain.
Daily visitors now tour the decks of this exciting historical attraction.
