Micronautics Offers Free Literature On Tide Predicting Software

Micronautics, Inc., Rockport, Maine, a firm which produces industrial grade seagoing software, is offering free literature on "TIDE.l Rise & Fall," a program for IBM PCs that predicts tides over 3,600 locations around the U.S. and Canada.

TIDE.l and TIDE.2, a companion product which predicts floods, ebb and slacks of tidal currents, are in extensive use on ships and in offices around the country, according to Micronautics. Among its clients, Micronautics lists Arco, Exxon, Mobil, Union Oil, Princess Cruises, Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard and numerous federal, state and local agencies. A major segment of its market are independent marine consultants. Port authorities and pilots are also among its users.

Micronautics, which has been selling both software products for two years, has expanded its coverage to South America. Operation Desert Storm has also prompted interest in the Persian Gulf.
