USNS Pecos (T-AO-197)
Christening ceremonies were re- cently held at the Shipyards Divi- sion of Avondale Industries, Inc., for the seventh in a series of seven fleet oilers under construction by the
The USNS Pecos (T-AO-197) is 667 feet long, 97 feet wide and has a maximum draft of 36 feet. Her mis- sion along with her sister ships is to transport bulk products from shore depots to combatants and support forces under way. The fleet oilers also carry and deliver fleet freight, cargo, water, mail and personnel.
Underway refueling of other ships in the fleet is accomplished using transfer rigs with transfer hoses sus- pended by a span wire automati- cally maintained in a constant-ten- sion range. T-AOs are also capable of refueling helicopters from a verti- cal replenishment facility aft of the superstructure.
Powered by a pair of Colt-Piel- stick 10-cylinder, medium speed diesel engines, the Pecos is capable of service speeds of 20 knots. She has a capacity of 183,500 barrels of oil in 18 cargo tanks, and is capable of simulataneously receiving, stor- ing and discharging two separate grades of cargo fuel.

Emergency Rescue Beacon
Introduced By Litton To
Aid Mariners In Distress
Clifton Special Devices division of Litton has developed and is pro- ducing an emergency rescue beacon that can help rescuers locate vessels at sea to within one mile.
Litton's Emergency Position In- dicating Radio Beacon can automat- ically transmit an emergency radio signal to polar-orbiting satellites which relay the data to ground sta- tions for high accuracy calculation of a craft's location.
The rescue beacon is a self-con- tained aid that fastens securely to nautical craft. It comes in two ver- sions. The first is fully automatic, meaning that it will activate and begin transmitting automatically should the vessel sink or capsize.
The automatic deployment mecha- nism releases the beacon before it reaches a depth of four meters.
The second version, which can be deployed manually, is designed for use where automatic activation is not required, such as for use in a lifeboat.
