FURUNO RADAR. £i iff!! ^feffl 1 7 2 0 I R A DOME
Whether your class is sail or power yachts, small commercial vesseb, or even large bass boats, Furuno's Model 1720 is in ycfur class. A small, compact, competitively priced radar, with a dome antenna weighing less than 10 lbs., that puts all other small radar designs to shame.
The Model 1720 has the performance features you expect from Furuno, and would be surprised to see from anyone else.
Ftdl 4-level target quantization and high resolution (490 x 656 pixels) T CRT for the brightest, sharpest radar picture. Stand- ard EBL, VRM and interference rejector.
Seven range scales from VA to 16 n.m., echo stretch for target enhancement, electronic guard zone, on-screen data readout,
Furuno's exclusive microwave IC receiver circuits, fully splashproof display.
If you need a little more performance, there are the Models 1800 and 1900 radars with 9" CRT's, range to 24 n.m. and choice of dome or open array antennas.
See the Model 1720 and our other fine radars at any of our more than 200 autho- rized dealer outlets, or write for complete information today.

SNAME Section Calls
For Papers For
Ice Tech Symposium
The Arctic Section of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine En- gineers (SNAME) has issued a call for technical papers for the fourth
International Ice Tech Symposium, which will be held in Calgary, Alber- ta, Canada, from March 20-23, 1990.
The symposium, which covers ships and marine systems in cold regions, will focus on the following interests: modeling of ship/ice inter- action; model and full scale tests in ice; ice loads and pressures; struc- tural design criteria; marine systems operations; design and construction of vessels; marine systems for trans- portation and resource develop- ment; future developments; marine engineering; and offshore struc- tures.
The deadline for submitting an abstract, which should be approxi- mately 400-500 words, is February 28, 1989. Notice of provisional ac- ceptance will be issued April 15, 1989. After acceptance, a draft man- uscript must be submitted by Au- gust 1, 1989. Notice of final accept- ance will be issued September 1, 1989. The deadline for final manu- script submission is January 1,1990, with submission of audio-visual ma- terial set for February 1, 1990.
Abstracts should be sent to J.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2P 3T3.
Renk Tacke Reports
Over 100 RCF Gears
Sold To Date
The West German firm of Renk
Tacke recently reported that anoth- er six Renk Constant Frequency (RCF) gear installations have been ordered, bringing the total sold within three years to well over 100 installations representing a value of approximately 100 million Marks (about US$56 million).
The RCF system, developed jointly by Renk Tacke with MAN
B&W, is used for economical cur- rent generation aboard ships. Via the RCF gear, a ship generator can be driven by a cheap, low-speed die- sel engine running on low-price lube oil. The installations have been suc- cessfully tested in service, partly in conjunction with TCS-Turbo-Com- pound Systems which converts a part of the exhaust gas energy into power.
According to Renk, the combina- tion of RCF and TCS represents the economical solution for on-board energy generation. The savings in operating costs lead to very short amortization costs. As a rule, the initial costs are recovered as early as after two to four years. Moreover, the RCF/TCS installations need very little maintenance and operate reliably at long (four years) service intervals.
