Peter Selwyn, Navicom GM, explains what his company does: "We use portable piloting units to put large ships into small places."
Used around the world, the Navicom portable piloting unit consists of a GPS receiver and antenna, with software installed on a notebook PC. Marine pilots board vessels coming into port and assist the captain to dock the ship. Because commercial vessels are enormous and space is limited in port, precision guidance is necessary to ensure the ships are accurately placed to avoid any damage to vessel or docking facilities.
Selwyn explains why Toughbooks are his top choice: "In theory any laptop could do the job; indeed, on occasion, we have supplied our technology in combination with laptops from other manufacturers where customers have requested it."
However, over the course of nearly a decade, he says only Toughbooks have proven their mettle consistently in the most trying of circumstances.
