Navidyne Unveils New INMARSAT Ship Terminal —Literature Available
Navidyne Corporation of Newport News, Va., recently introduced the first in a new generation of marine satellite communications equipment, the ESZ-10000.
The new unit is a Standard A, Class 1 INMARSAT ship earth station. It provides instant, clear telephone, telex, and data links between ship and shore through the global INMARSAT network of satellites and coast earth stations.
It is said to be the first ship earth station to meet the new requirements established in Issue 2 of the INMARSAT Technical Requirements Document.
According to Navidyne president A. Clifford Barker, "The ESZ-10000 follows on the success of Navidyne's ESZ 8000 satellite communicator, which introduced numerous innovations in INMARSAT equipment. The ESZ-10000 retains the flexibility, expandability, and unmatched operating ease of its predecessor," said Mr. Barker, "and also offers new features never before available in any INMARSAT terminal at any price." With the ESZ-10000, Navidyne introduces the smallest and lightest INMARSAT antenna on the market today. The antenna radome is only 51.5 inches high and 51 inches in diameter. The entire assembly weighs less than 209 pounds. The below-deck components are also significantly smaller.
The central electronics unit is about the same size as Navidyne's well- GASKETSEAL known ESZ-4000 satellite navigator.
The new unit incorporates lowpowered, solid-state circuits throughout, reducing failures and simplifying on-board repairs, and with a self-contained, uninterruptable power supply, it gives up to 30 minutes of full service in the event of a main power failure.
