COURSEMASTER COMPANY HISTORY:   ,,,,  35 Years and Still On Course
 
Coursemaster Autopilots Pty Ltd has been designing and manufacturing quality autopilots in Sydney Australia for 35 years and exporting to Europe, Asia, Middle East and North America. 

In 1974, Coursemaster was incorporated after David Chapman's innovative 'autopilot with unique compass heading sensor' won a John Lysaght Inventors Award and received national coverage
on the ABC Television's Inventors Program.

Coursemaster's R & D has continued this tradition of technical innovation under the direction of
Dr Graham Rigby PHD MSc., achieving another world first for Coursemaster in 1980 with the design of the CM300 autopilot using digital electronics and a fluxgate compass. An interface to enable a Coursemaster autopilot to automatically steer to waypoints from a satellite navigator achieved another world first for Coursemaster in 1984.

Coursemaster's commitment to specialize in innovative autopilot technology continued with the development of the first microprocessor based CM500, the dedicated commercial CM650 pilot, and the innovative software and large LCD graphics display of the CM700 and CM800 range.
The development of the all the Coursemaster models may be seen on our Product History page.
Dr Rigby's Vessel Motion Simulator has been instrumental in the development of the intelligent, self-tuning software in the new CM80i autopilot - primarily designed for smaller powerboats with hydraulic steering and the first autopilot that does not require a rudder feedback sensor. Along with exhaustive sea trials conducted on vessels of differing displacement, the VMS has also
been at the core of the development of the intelligence built into the software of the latest commercial CM880 autopilot - designed to IMO standards for use on work boats, trawlers and freighters of up to 10,000 tonnes
