Transas Marine has switched to a new- generation. modern design of hardware for its Navi-Sailor range of navigation systems, new hardware which is avail- able as full-size pedestal mount and desktop consoles. Designed to support the new software technology used in the
Transas Navi-Sailor line, the hardware set comprises a console and built-in RS- 3 marine computer, which will be applicable as the standard Marine Pro- cessing Unit (MPU) for the entire range of the company's navigation products.
The desktop version is designed as a solution for small craft or a retrofit.
When bridge space is limited, the con- sole can be located on the chart table, while the RS-3, as a separate module, can be positioned anywhere else. Anoth- er advantage of the new consoles is that they are pre-cabled and delivered as "plug and play" solutions allowing easy installation onboard the ship. The con- soles are in Transas standard black and dark-gray colors, although other colors are also available upon request.

NorControl Gives River Forth
Forth Ports, PLC, the U.K.'s second largest port handler, commissioned a
Vessel Tracking System (VTS) from
Norcontrol IT in 1998 to replace equip- ment installed in 1984. The system uses four radars to track all commercial ves- sels within the Firth of Forth but it need- ed the back up of a sophisticated Voyage
Management Database to record all associated information such as voyage times, anchorage usage, pilot & tug usage, cargo status etc. Following a requirements specification process with
Norcontrol IT a completely new Voyage
Management Database was designed and installed. "Norcontrol IT have developed this latest product after extensive consulta- tion with Forth Ports, an interactive approach which will now be a key part of the Voyage Management Database development with other customers," said 0yvind Taugl, Manager of
Research and Development in Norcon- trol IT. "It will also ensure future cus- tomers benefit from a solid base product while being assured that their specific needs are incorporated into the delivered application."
The Voyage Management Database is a web-based application designed to be intuitive to use and enable rapid pro- cessing of information. The application manages static and dynamic data and a
Data Administrator can track and man- age a wide range of information about system users, local pilots, tugs, ports, ships and cargoes etc.
