Associated Branch Pilots Choose Raven Industries Marine Navigation

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., April 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Raven Aerostar (Nasdaq:RAVN) is pleased to announce that the Associated Branch Pilots of the Port of New Orleans (Bar Pilots) has selected the Raven Traffic Management System to provide increased situational intelligence for Port of New Orleans ship pilots. Raven Aerostar's marine navigation aid systems are used by ship pilots in over a dozen ports in the U.S. The Bar Pilots recently ordered 35 Raven Traffic Management Systems, including the company's latest rate of turn sensor, Revolve.

Revolve is a marine navigation aid developed by Raven Aerostar to enhance safety by enabling local ship pilots to better predict the future position of vessels as they maneuver waterways and ship traffic safely to dock.

"This is our second purchase from Raven Aerostar," explained Capt. Mike Lorino, president of the Associated Branch Pilots of the Port of New Orleans. "We chose Raven not only for Revolve, an outstanding product, but also for the exceptional service and support their team provides."

"Revolve is an impressive technology that integrates a traditional automatic identification system with a robust, reliable rate of turn sensor," said Lon Stroschein, Raven Aerostar vice president and general manager. "Revolve is a lightweight, compact unit where size and weight of a portable pilot unit are critical. Assisting ship pilots in navigating in and out of port, Revolve supports Raven Aerostar's great challenge of saving lives by enhancing safety of ship pilots and crew members."

Raven Industries is a leader in providing reliable, high-performance marine navigation aid systems, historically and today. In 2001, Raven acquired Starlink, Inc. a company that pioneered many GPS technologies, including developing the industry's first MSK Beacon/DGPS receiver. Along with Raytheon Service Company and Capt. Joseph Bradley of The Pilot's Association for the Bay and River Delaware, Starlink developed the first GPS-based portable pilot unit in 1991. Today, Raven Aerostar continues to foster Starlink's rich tradition of developing innovative GPS solutions for marine applications worldwide.
