Litton Marine's ISIS Installed on
Litton Marine Systems is supplying an
ISIS 2500 machinery monitoring, alarm and condition assessment system on a new 259 ft. (79 m) mono-hull twin- screw fisheries protection vessel for the
Irish Navy. The ISIS 2500 provides real- time monitoring of the vessel's twin
Wartsila main engines through a serial data interface with the Wartsila Engine
Control Systems (WECS). The system, which monitors approximately 500 additional channels for shipboard sen- sors and systems, also provides remote control of the vessel's bilge pumps, bal- last tanks, oil transfer pumps and engine room ventilation.

PinPoint Systems International's
SVS/DVS systems have an "open archi- tecture" design, which means all types of computer peripherals can be inter- faced. The self-contained electronic charting systems incorporate a fully marinized Intel Pentium computer and a military specification internal hard drive. The sunlight and daylight view- able screens are precise full-color TFT displays. The software automatically loads charts and accesses positioning data, and automatically finds the best scale chart for the vessel's position.

NovAtel Offers GPS Antenna
NovAtel presented its new GPS 600
Series Antenna recently. Created as the
GPS industry's premiere dual frequency antenna to achieve less than 1 mm offset between L1 and L2 phase centers with- out the aid of a choke ring, the new 600 series antenna can reach this level by replacing conventional patch antenna designs with NovAtel's patent pending
Pinwheel Technology. Measuring 6.5- in. and weighing 600 grams, the antenna is compact — making it ideal for portable applications, such as surveying.
