NASA to show Bluetooth Navtex receiver at METSTRADE
NASA Marine will show its latest Bluetooth Navtex receiver at METSTRADE
Instrument designer and manufacturer NASA Marine has what it believes is the sector’s only Bluetooth Navtex receiver on show at this year’s METSTRADE.
Described by director Tony Kocher as ‘a natural progression from our fixed screen and wired PC connection Navtex receivers’ the compact unit enables messages to be downloaded and filtered directly to a smartphone or tablet.
“As with all our marine products, we design everything to be high-performance state-of-the-art instruments but at a modest cost, representing great value,” explained Mr Kocher.
The firm is keen to maintain its reputation for the provision of Navtex receivers and alongside this addition, visitors to NASA’s stand - 01.634 - can preview the firm’s revamped Clipper, Target and Cruiser wind systems.
With smaller, lighter mast head units they have direct NMEA output via a narrow 3mm diameter mast cable to NMEA input display units.
Also on the stand will be a new electromagnetic speed sensor and completing the line-up will be a preview of one of NASA’s latest Allegro cockpit instruments.
Similar to the Clipper portfolio, they feature new compact enclosures with a negative display mode and NMEA outputs. While the Allegro Wind will be on display, other instruments are under development and due for launch in 2018.
