NAUT210 - Integrated Navigation 1


Credits: 4

This course integrates theoretical and practical applications of radar and ARPA within the context of safe visual underway navigation. In particular, Midshipmen will learn to adapt system displays to various conditions, understand and apply sensor inputs to radar, analyze digital and graphic information on radar & ARPA, perform radar transfer plotting, acquire and access contact information, and practice contact management using trail maneuver functions and AIS information. Midshipmen will also master the basics of electronic navigation and vessel maneuvering, as well as steering and autopilot control, following helm orders, and responding to operational alarms. Radar & ARPA competencies from STCW, as amended, are satisfied by this course.
