NAUT215 - Integrated Navigation 2


Credits: 4

This course integrates theoretical and practical applications of electronic chart display and information systems (ECDIS) within the contexts of safe visual underway navigation. Midshipmen will learn to adapt system displays to various conditions, analyze digital and graphic chart information, understand and apply sensor inputs, and access contact information using AIS and ARPA. Midshipmen will master additional aspects of electronic navigation, including radar navigation, echo sounder, compass and steering systems, and also vessel maneuvering, responses to MOB, watchkeeping principles and application of COLREGS. Ship positioning and autopilot control competencies from STCW are satisfied by this course. Successful completion of this course satisfies STCW training requirements for the operational use of ECDIS, as amended, and permits a USCG certificate to be awarded upon graduation. Successful completion is required for assignment to the sea second term.
