COST REDUCTION OF ULCC CARGO HANDLING SYSTEM USING COAXIAL DATA MULTIPLEXING

Labor and material costs and the time required for outfitting a ULCC, or any ship of equal or greater outfit complexity, can be greatly reduced through the use of multiplexing. This report describes multiplexing using a single, armored, coaxial cable which is wired in a continuous loop in the ship. The system uses frequency modulation and digital techniques to communicate with remotely located control units. Using low power semiconductor circuits, the electronics in the several control units are powered from a central, low voltage regulated source which allows the system to be an inherently safer autonomous working subsystem; totally self-sufficient and able to recover from various network failures that can occur over the life of the ship.
