Trimble Navigation reportedly offers the first GPS receiver with a built-in differential receiver. The company also reportedly offers the first GPS receiver with a two-slot card reader, a feature that includes another first: a slot for GPS memory cards. Owing to these developments, mariners no longer have to buy and install a separate beacon receiver to get differential's 33-foot accuracy.

And because of these developments mariners can now record and archive their GPS navigation data.

These developments are featured in Trimble's new NT product line, the company's next generation of big-screen GPS receivers for the marine market. Trimble's NT line comprises three products: the

NT200D GPS, the NT200 GPS and the NT100 GPS. The NT200D pro- vides built-in differential and an

Assure the

Safe Passage of

Ships in Your Port

J. Vre you guessing water current speed and direction when vessels are being maneuvered into port? The

Port and Harbor BroadBand ADCP measures and reports the current speed and direction in your shipping channel, in real-time, without interfering with vessel traffic.

Harbor pilots can use this information to improve safety and to reduce transit time through the port.

The port authority can use the information to better manage ship traffic. You can use directly- measured data instead of interpolating tidal charts, extrapolating off-site data, or just guessing.

RD Instruments

A member of the

BroadBand product line • Display real-time data directly measured in your shipping channel • Avoid interference with vessel traffic by mounting the ADCP on the channel bottom • Assure safe passage at other sites - Port entrance - Platforms - Moorings - Berths

Call RDI today to learn how a Port and Harbor BroadBand ADCP can be used to assure the safe passage of ships in and out of your port.
