Merged STN Atlas Elektronik Exhibits Extensive Range Of Products At SMM '94
Following the merger between Atlas Elektronik GmbH and STN Systemtechnik Nord GmbH at the end of August, the new company STN Atlas Elektronik GmbH made its first presentation at the SMM '94 international exhibition in Hamburg. At i ts stand, STN Atlas Elektronik, which combines the products and technologies of both former companies, gave an extensive survey of its range of activities in the maritime sector.
The new Marine Division, which is continuing the activities of the former STN marine technology and Atlas marine electronics divisions within a new market-oriented structure, presented exhibits which highlight the latest trends in the ship supplier industry.
STN Atlas Elektronik exhibited its new Ship Control Center (SCC), a ship control system encompassing the fields of navigation, communication and ship operation technology.
Designed for single-person operation of a bridge and using standardized modules and interfaces, SCC is available in three versions: SCC Standard, SCC Nav and SCC Wl. The Atlas NACOS integrated navigation command systems were incorporated as core components in all versions; in-house communications and automation equipment can also be configured to meet individual, cost-savingbridgerequirements. All three versions incorporate a full range of DEBEG internal and external GMDSS-type communica- tions facilities, such as Inmarsat-C, DSC, radio telephone, telex modem and PC and two VHF units, supported by an integral dual power supply system. Also on display from STN Atlas Elektronik at the show: the high-resolution electronic sea chart ECDIS; the new integrated communication system DEBEG 3020; the high-power automation system Damatic XD; the GEAPAS 10 automatic ship network; the HydroCAD hydrographic measurement system; diesel-electric threephase systems for modern ferries; and WAMA, STN Atlas Elektronik's new winch measurement and automation system. This research winch, which is installed on the Walther Herwig III research ship, makes it possible to operate research and fishing winches more accurately, according to the company, with less personnel and less material wear. The Marine Division covers such diverse fields as electrical propulsion technology, navigation and communication, power supply and automation, integrated ship control and communication systems, as well as fishing and deepsea measurement technologies. As a system management and integration specialist, the company cooperates with shipyards and shipping companies for complex ship projects.
