Free Interface Offered With Texas Instruments' SatNav —Literature Available

Texas Instruments recently announced an introductory offer for its new TI 5000 satellite navigator.

The offer, which is in effect until July 31, 1983, consists of a free interface board with the purchase of a TI 5000. Literature is available on the SatNav.

The interface board, designed to be installed in a TI Loran, allows the user to link the TI 5000 to a TI Loran receiver (TI 9000 series) or navigator (TI 9900 series) . The combination produces TI's LORSAT navigation system.

Present TI Loran owners will be able to upgrade their existing navigation system with the purchase of a TI 5000 and the free interface board. TI Loran units which accept the interface board include the TI 9000A, TI 9000N, TI 9000NS, TI 9000S, TI 9900 or TI 9900N.

The LORSAT integrated navigation system, announced in Oc October 1982, is achieved by combining the TI 5000 satellite navigator with the interface board which accepts external inputs from a TI Loran receiver or navigator.

The new system combines the accuracy and worldwide coverage of satellite navigation with the continuous signal of Loran C navigation. The LORSAT system offers extended range and improved conventional Loran C operation, and worldwide transit navigation.
