Sperry Marine has introduced a new stand-alone ARPA designed to fulfill IMO and SOLAS regulations which go into effect January 1, 1991.

IMO, in its Resolution A.422(XI) "The Recommendation on Perform- ance Standards for Automatic Ra- dar Plotting Aids (ARPAs)," recom- mended staged implementation of mandatory requirements to carry

ARPA. This recommendation has been ratified and is now part of the

Safety at Sea Regulations (SO-


Prior to the IMO resolution, own- ers of many vessels had already installed collision avoidance equip- ment which does not fully meet the new performance standards. These

ARPAs were "grandfathered" until

January 1, 1991.

Sperry Marine's new stand-alone

ARpA is designed to ease the cost and inconvenience of upgrading the noncompliant ARPA systems. The heart of the new stand-alone ARPA is a highly flexible Adaptive Inter- face. This interface module allows

Radar/ARPA display to work along- side almost all existing radar sys- tems.

Owners of noncompliant ARPAs can now upgrade their systems to the same high resolution rasterscan display with the easy-to-use touch- screen controls featured in Sperry

Marine's award-winning RASCAR radar/ARPA. The RASCAR display becomes a fully compliant 20-target

ARPA with the existing radar in- stallation, avoiding the expense of replacing the vessel's radar system.

The Adaptive Interface even ena- bles the RASCAR display to select which radar it is working with in a dual radar system.

The merits of MAN B&W Die- sel's "mini-bore" S26MC low-speed engine are being appreciated by a growing number of designers and operators of small-to-medium sized ships in varied inland, coastal and deepsea trades.

The 260-mm bore/980-m stroke design was introduced to extend the economic and technical advantages of the MC two-stroke engine series to vessels which before had been restricted to geared four-stroke pro- pulsion machinery. The S26MC range consists of 4 to 8-cylinder models offering outputs up to 3970 bhp at 250 rpm, allowing direct cou- pling to a cp or fixed-pitch propel- ler.

The overall operational qualities of the design—notably high reliabil- cations equipment, is a subsidiary of

Newport News Shipbuilding, a Ten- neco Company.

The reference list includes dry cargo ships and tankers, and excellent service experience is reported from the 19 engines already at sea.

Typical applications for the com- pact S26MC-based propulsion plant are illustrated by the following re- cent installations: •Mekhanik Makarin, the first of 10 river/seagoing timber carriers or- dered for the Soviet Union's North- ern Shipping Company from Aus- tria's Oswag yard. Each 2,500-dwt shallow draft vessel is specified with a 6-cylinder S26MC engine develop- ing 2,820 bhp at 237 rpm and driv-
