Raytheon Anschütz has now introduced new features for its Standard 22 gyro compass. Among the new features the most important improvements are independent transmitting magnetic compass and individual speed error correction functions. Standard 22 will now be equipped with a modified distribution unit, which is enhanced by an independent transmitting magnetic compass (TMC) path. Thus, a failure in the distribution unit or even in the compass system will not affect the processing of the magnetic compass heading. This enhancement ensures that the steering repeater would be switched automatically to magnetic heading in a situation of lost gyro compass heading. With this function, various flag state authorities do not require an optical bypass for the magnetic compass on board of the vessel. According to Olav Denker, the independent transmitting magnetic compass function of Standard 22 will not only increase standards of safety, but will also offer economical benefits: “Thanks to the new feature, no separate TMC unit will be required and the yard does not have to install an optical bypass for the magnetic compass. This saves costs for the ship owner and installation time for the yard.” The new Standard 22 will also offer an individual speed error correction mode. In a double or triple gyro compass systems it will be possible to input speed and latitude information directly into the Standard 22
With the new Horizon MF the German navigation system manufacturer Raytheon Anschütz launches a new generation gyro compass which can be operated free of maintenance. Horizon MF is Raytheon Anschütz’ new strap down compass system which uses Hemispherical Resonator Gyros (HRG) to measure angular rates for heading calculation. In a strapped-down system angular rate gyros and accelerometers are not gimballed but mounted stationary in a housing

THOR is the brain-child of CTruk’s Military and Security team, who between them have amassed approximately 200 years of military experience, skills and knowledge. Realizing that new designs must be right the first time, the company has established a Military Design Advisory Panel (MDAP), which acts as an advisory body, steering design to ensure that vessels are fit for task. The result of all this expertise, not to mention CTruk’s proven offshore support vessel designs, is THOR
Scientists have long known that leatherback sea turtles travel thousands of miles each year through open ocean to get from foraging habitats to nesting beaches and tropical wintering grounds, but how the wanderers find their way has been “an enduring mystery of animal behavior,” says marine biologist Kara Dodge. “Adult turtles can pinpoint specific nesting beaches even after being away many years,” she notes.
BW Offshore has successfully used Miko magnetic patches in a pioneering new repair technique that creates significant time and cost savings. When some cracks appeared in hull plating in the engine room of the FPSO Abo operating off the Nigerian coast, the BW Offshore’s engineering project team chose magnetic patches from a Miko Tanker Kit to quickly seal the leak and make the vessel safe and secure. At that point conventional repair techniques would have required the vessel to
