For marine operators of all types,

Cellnet Corporation provides

CallAboard®, a solution for offshore environments where public tele- phone service is desired.

Using state-of-the-art cellular and pay-phone technology, CallAboard reportedly fills a need for many in- dustry companies including opera- tors of ferries, gaming vessels, work barges, marine offshore construc- tion projects, etc.

CallAboard allows callers to dial anywhere in the world and bill the entire call to a major credit or phone company calling card, as well as make collect calls. The vessel or platform operators never receive any bills for user calls. In addition,

Cellnet pays commissions based on percentages of the monthly gross cellular airtime revenue that is gen- erated. The service is provided free of charge to qualified marine opera- tors and is available across the U.S. and in certain foreign markets.

C-Map USA's digitized electronic chart library includes more than 8,500 charts covering all major ar- eas and ports around the world.

C-Map electronic charts are accuruate digitized composites of all pertinent information from gov- ernment charts. Observations made during a trip, like the location of dangerous reefs, may be perma- nently stored in the charting sys- tem or on a C-Map "User-Cartridge."

A C-Map-based system may also be connected to a compatible printer to print a hard copy of each course. All

C-Map-based systems have the ca- pability to convert meters to feet or fathoms with a push of a button.

ComNav Marine has manufac- tured commercial marine autopi- lots since 1982. ComNav introduced the ComNav 2200 Autopilot in re- sponse to customer demand. The 2200's actual heading and com- manded course are continuously shown on a traditional compass rose which is also used for dialing in the course changes. Knobs are used for function control, rudder and turn rate. Automatic Yaw Control con- stantly senses and adjusts for sea state conditions. A DC motor con- troller circuit interfaces the 2200 to most available steering drive sys- tems.
