Navigation Sciences Offers VIEWNAV® Master Mariner Brochure

full-color "VIEWNAV® Master Mariner Electronic Chart Navigation System" brochure is available from Navigation Sciences, Inc. of Bethesda, Md. The four-page brochure describes and illustrates the VIEWNAV system used by operators of pilotboats, ferries, tugboats, and others who want to navigate more accurately in difficult harbor conditions.

Using proprietary software, the VIEWNAV system interfaces with onboard radar to provide a bright, true-motion radar display of surrounding activity, super-imposed on full-color, NOS-quality digitized Electronic Charts. Radar land clutter— one of the problems with standard radar displays, which can make target detection difficult—is completely masked out on the Electronic Charts. This makes radar interpretation easier and faster by more clearly defining radar images of vessel traffic, and other targets. Buoys, navaids, and channels are shown in actual chart colors in selected scales from one to 48 NM square.

Precise positioning is accomplished using differential Loran-C, accurate to five yards, and by advanced "radar map matching." The system can interface with onboard radar, gyrocompass, speed log and most Latitude/Longitude inputs, such as Loran, SatNav, Decca, Omega and GPS. The VIEWNAV system can also be interfaced with closed cirucit TV systems such as those found on cruise ships to allow crew and passengers to monitor the progress of the ship.

The VIEWNAV Master Mariner Electronic Chart Navigation System consists of a 14, or 20-inch Full- Color Display Monitor, a Control Console, Main Equipment Cabinet, and any number of remote monitors.
