This Is MM&P Country Cable Ship Long Lines, a unique cable-laying vessel operated by the Transoceanic Cable Ship Company and manned by MM&P officers, ranges the oceans around the world laying sophisticated cable that is able to transmit 4 ,000 simultaneous conversations- more than four times the capacity of the older syste m. Calling upon their considerable skills, the officers aboard CS Long Lines are capable of guiding the ship via a satellite navigational system through receiving equipment able to interrogate the system of transit satellites orbited for purposes of navigation. Thus, the ship can avail itself of the last word in navigatio nal aids no matter where it is. And no matter where the ship is, it is truly in MM&P Country.
