The Simrad AP70 Autopilot Pack can be installed as a stand-alone display or network as a second or third station for ultimate vessel control.
Match Your Requirements
The Simrad AP70 is ideal for both simple installations where IMO approval is not required but also can be configured (by matching with an approved computer) to meet the requirements for a Type Approved autopilot. Install as a stand-alone display or network as a second or third station for ultimate vessel control.
The AP70's stunning waterproof design, daylight viewable display, color user interface, intuitive on-screen graphics and option of flush or bracket mount, enable easy operation regardless of the installation requirements. Additionally, dedicated mode, command and turn keys and rotary knob provide quick and unmistakable selection of the required function when the situation calls for immediate response.
Integration with other external on-board systems including interface to central alarm units is achieved by multiple IEC 61162-1, 2 and 3 channels.
The AP70 utilizes the intelligent SimNet protocol, making installation, data sharing and system control easier and more flexible than ever.
AP70 Control Unit Features:
Drive computer for rudder using reversible motor or non-isolated solenoids and frequency rudder angle feedback. Connection for NFU remote control and one channel IEC 61162-1 (NMEA 0183) RX/TX or IEC 61162-1,2 and 3 compatible.

Having just wrapped up its ninth year, the Boise River Watershed Watch program is an increasingly popular citizen science program in Boise, Idaho. It takes interested volunteers and joins them with expert scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) who teach them about the river’s health and sampling water quality using transparency tubes, dip nets and chemical test kits. “Our focus is to educate folks on the parameters that we measure, to give them an idea of the river’s health,” said Tim Merrick, public information officer at the USGS’ Idaho Water Science Center. “So they can collect data on the river’s conditions and get plugged in.Read More
Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California - San Diego have designed and built a diver-operated underwater microscope to study millimeter-scale processes as they naturally occur on the seafloor. The research team has observed coral turf wars, coral polyp “kissing” and much more using the new microscopic technology. Many important biological processes in the ocean take place at microscopic scales, but when scientists remove organisms from their native habitats to study them in the lab, much of the information and its context are lost. In a quest to overcome this challenge, Scripps oceanographers developed the new type of underwater microscope to image marine microorganisms in their natural settings without disturbing them.Read More
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.Read More
