Navigation Review (continued from page 22) ming. The unit features an easy-to- read LCD display, built-in intercom and P/A and includes all U.S., inter- national and Canadian channels.
Standard's Horizon LH10 loud hailer has an output of 30 watts of power and features listen-back, four fog horns, a four-station intercom, and other alarm signals. Attractive optional flush-mount systems are available for both units.
Racal Marine introduced one of the world's first production type- approved color ARPAs, the model 2690 BT, which provides a 16-inch
PPI equivalent scan on a 26-inch diagonal TV-type display.
Well-suited for deepsea vessels, the 2690 BT series ARPA and TM/
AC display are easy to operate with large, individual function control buttons. The basic radar controls on the upper panel follow standard Ra- cal-Decca layout used in thousands of Master series 20-inch color radars already in use at sea.
The clear advantages of this sys- tem are its exceptionally bright color presentation of radar video, synthetic graphics and tote infor- mation on a 26-inch DSC display.
The 26-inch Racal Decca marine display has been specially designed to meet the requirement for a pre- sentation that can be interpreted quickly and surely under all condi- tions.
Switchable color coding mini- mizes eyestrain by day or night and allows the display to be viewed con- veniently under a variety of lighting conditions.
This easy-to-operate ARPA has a 20-track capacity with manual or automatic target acquisition. The unit's ARPA controls are located on the lower panel, arranged according to function in a logical layout.
In addition to their standard suites of eight video maps, the Ra- cal-Decca 2690 BT series ARPAs can be supplied with an NMEA 0183 proprietary interface to a navi- gation system such as the Racal-
Decca MNS 2000 or Decca Naviga- tor Mark 53. This interface enables the operator to show on the ARPA range scales (1-1/2 to 24 nm) a graphic presentation of the voyage plan.
The same interface also enables the ARPA to receive from the asso- ciated navigation system a defined position in latitude and longitude, preset to correspond to the refer- ence point around which one or more of the video maps in the
ARPA memory has been con- structed. The ARPA can calculate the range and bearing of this point from the ship's position and thus provide automatic alignment of the video map.

Vessel Management Systems
Company, Jeffersonville, Ind., has developed the Vessel Management
System, an onboard and shore-side computerized tool for evaluating and improving towboat perform- ance.
The Vessel Management Sys- tem™ (VMS) is comprised of a set of components that all interface, or may each work independently. One of the basic on-board components is the VMS module. It measures depth, engine rpms, shaft rpms, gal- lons per hour, speed over ground, speed through water, and other data, and computes cost per mile.
Then, using the same data, it calcu- lates optimal gallons per hour. The captain then sets his throttles for that consumption rate and, accord- ing to the company, fuel costs fall.
There is another module (DEMA) that can automatically monitor up to 1,500 internal engine functions, alerting engineers to problems...and averting needless scheduled mainte- nance.
There is the Traffic Applications
Processor—a personal computer and programs for on-board paper- work. When linked with
WATERCOM™, an inland marine industry direct-dial telephone sys- tem, it can give boat and home office modem communications ca- pabilities. WATERCOM also offers credit card calling, reduced night- time and weekend rates, and consol- idated billing.
There is the Traffic and Dispatch
Manager software package, which— on a computer screen—takes barge type, shape, size, draft, pickup and drop-off points, towboat horsepow- er and other information, and helps managers design more efficient, more profitable tow configurations.
And there is the Towboat Opera- tions Evaluation System, which col- lects, processes and analyzes trip information. It can provide facts about the performance of a single boat, a fleet—even the entire com- pany.
Vessel Management Systems Co. is a joint venture of Dundics Enter- prises and Waterways Communica- tions Systems, Inc., and was formed to market the Vessel Management

Warren Offers Free
Screw Pump Brochure
An eight-page, four-color bro- chure detailing Warren's screw pump line is now available from the manufacturer. Designed for easy readability, the brochure contains data on 5 series in the line, including information on capacities, discharge pressures, and materials of con- struction, as well as product photo- graphs.
Warren's screw pumps are ideal for a wide range of applications, including OEM, power, marine, pe- troleum refining, and chemical and petrochemical processing services.
Typical applications include cellu- lose acetate, spinning dope, coal tar, viscous polymers, corn syrup, hy- draulic oil, barge unloading, and cargo pipe flushing. For unusual ap- plications, Warren can develop spe- cial screw pump designs.
Warren Pumps is a leading manu- facturer of rotary, reciprocating, and centrifugal pumps. Located in
Warren, Mass., the company spe- cializes in engineered pumps for the power, marine, chemical, and petro- leum processing industries. Warren is also a leading manufacturer for the U.S. Navy.
