Bates Automatic Course Indicator ever used operationally?

Designed to provide S-shaped courses instead of zig-zags.


Apparently tested by the USN in the vessel USS Gem when attached to the Submarine Defense Association. (Apparently tested quite a few other items.)

Seems interesting and a book by the inventor provides what to me is good data.
