1990s by the larger 12 and 16 cylin- der "vee" form models. Providing main propulsion and auxiliary power and spanning the power band 90 bhp - 1,970 bhp, the series are re- portedly noted for their reliability, quality, high levels of power output, low fuel consumption and low run- ning costs. In 1993, Dorman launched its new Sea Prince 6L line of engines, designed for powering vessels within the specialized Euro- pean inland waterways, inshore fish- ing and workboat markets, and the line has reportedly become a popu- lar choice.

PBS Turbo And ABC Engines
Reach Supply Agreement
An agreement has been reached between ABC Gent and PBS Velka
Bites AS for PBS to supply turbo- chargers for all engines of the DXC and DZC series after the successful testing of the turbochargers by ABC.
ABC Gent manufactures super- charged oil engines of the DXC and
DZC series, all of which have been fitted with VTR superchargers of the 0 and 1 series. The PBS turbo- chargers will be manufactured so that no modifications, including adjustment devices and exhaust pipes, will have to be made to the
ABC engines. Testing was carried out at ABC's facilities and it was found that the turbochargers were capable of supplying the required amount of air into an engine of im- proved efficiency at lower exhaust gas temperatures.
GER Corporation Previews
Airborne Imaging System
Geophysical and Environmental
Research (GER) Corp. previewed its new airborne imaging system, the EPS 2100-M, designed to detect oil spills, at the Second Thematic
Conference — Remote Sensing for
Marine and Coastal Environments.
GER scientist Dr. Tod Rubin also presented a paper, "A State-of-Art
Airborne Infrared/Ultra Violet Scan- ner for Oil Pollution Monitoring and
Mapping," authored by B.M.
Sorenson of Intradan, Dr. Sheng-
Huel Chang of GER Corporation, and T.F. Melhuish of the Cana- dian Coast Guard. It describes the principles and capabilities of the new and upgraded scanner, known commercially as EPS-2100M, now ready for use by the Canadian Coast
Guard. Dr. Chang, president and co-founder of GER Corporation, at- tended the opening day of the con- ference. Dr. Chang was instru- mental in organizing the First In- ternational Airborne Imaging Spec- trometer Calibration Workshop to establish industry standards for imaging spectrometry, at which a select group of internationally known experts from academia, in- dustry and government partici- pated.

Raytheon Unit's Minehunter
Imaging Tests Successful
Applied Remote Technology (ART), a subsidiary of Raytheon
Company, has successfuly com- pleted a series of demonstrations using its XP-21 unmanned under- water vehicle (UUV) for mine-hunt- ing in near-coastal waters.
Witnessing the demonstrations, conducted near the Naval Amphibi- ous Base in Coronado, Calif, were representatives from the U.S. Navy's
Mine Warfare and Explosive Ord- nance Disposal program offices and the Naval Special Warfare Office.
The XP-21 was outfitted with a fiber optic tether, forward-looking and side scan sonars, and an underwa- ter television camera. According to
Mark Iwanowski, ART's business development director, the company- funded development activity and demonstrations showed that the 21- inch unmanned underwater vehicle could perform mine-hunting opera- tion in waters as shallow as 10 feet, just beyond the surf zone. The XP- 21 was recently equipped with ART's laser-scan imaging system, a gated laser imaging system, and a con- ventional low-light camera to evalu- ate how each of these sensors would perform in turbid near-coastal wa- ters.

WITH TRUSTWORTHY REFERENCES
IN THE MARKET
The Ulstein Compass Thruster concept has proven its unique flexibility since its introduction in 1978. Today, our thrusters are in operation worldwide in a wide range of applications.
The fixed hull mounted Compass Thruster is suitable for all types of applications, like tugs, supply vessels, diving support vessels, inspection vessels and ferries. For these vessels a precision of manoeuverability and speed of response is of utmost importance, which is often difficult to obtain except with C.P. Compass Thrusters.
Power range 500 - 7000 kW.
