NAUT310 - Integrated Navigation 3


Credits: 4

This required course applies skills formally developed and assessed in the first two levels of Integrated Navigation, and adds several more advanced skills, especially pertaining to ship handling and thruster control. This course applies a high degree of problem solving, detection of ambiguous or conflicting information, risk assessment, decision making and determination of solo watchstanding limitations in a variety of demanding conditions and situations. Situational awareness now encompasses dynamics of watchstanding. Human factors and cognitive processes of solo watchstanding are applied to case studies and exercise analysis. Following in-depth simulation-based practice, the desired training outcome is for each student to satisfy the assessment criteria of a final underway scenario of interacting ownships in which the safety of navigation is maintained amidst subtle yet critical ambiguities between the visual scene and instrument data, where it is reasonable nonetheless to maintain a solo bridge watch, and where there is the possibility of an emergency response prior to augmentation of the bridge watch. This course is required of all Midshipmen and is offered during the First Term of the First Class year for A-split sea year training assignees and Third Term of Second Class year for B-split assignees.
