STN Atlas Offers New Navaid Development- Supplies VTS To Sweden

STN Atlas Elektronik has made new navaid developments which include Chartpilot — a modular integrated navigation console for management and display of all essential nautical data, superimposed on electronic charts via a choice of 17, 20 and 29-in. high-resolution color monitors. Reportedly, in a stand-along mode, it can also be operated with non-Atlas radars using an NMEA interface.

Chartpilot reportedly complements the Atlas NACOS series of integrated navigation command units. Users reportedly include P&O's latest cruise liners Oriana and Sun Princess, both of which are equipped with 45-2 systems. NACOS also forms part of a new series of Ship Control Centers. Communications systems include a full range of Debeg internal and external GMDSS-type systems, inclusive of dual power supply functions for fail-safe operation. Also available is the SP 1600 series of Inmarsat-M digital mobile satellite terminals which reportedly includes interfaces for fax units, laptop computers and GPS receivers.

In addition, the Swedish National Maritime Administration has ordered an STN Atlas Elektronik 9730 Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) system for monitoring and controlling all traffic in the Flintrannan Channel during construction of the new Oresund combined bridge and tunnel link connecting northern Denmark and southwestern Sweden. The radarbased system, due to begin operation in July, is reportedly designed to enhance the safety and two-way flow of an estimated annual volume of more than 20,000 vessels of all types and tonnage. It will comprise two remote-controlled radar stations on the north and south sides of the new link, at Limhamn and Klagshamn, connected to a proposed new VTS center at Malmo pilot station.
