Navigation and Bridge Guide Part 2

The ShipInsight In-Depth Guides have in a very short time become established around the world as a key tool for decision makers and purchasers within ship operation and shipowning organisations.

The ShipInsight In-Depth Guide to Navigation and Bridge 2 completes the set of three guides that cover the command and control centre of ships.

Whereas the earlier two guides centred on bridge layout, navigation communications, alarms and ECDIS, this new volume covers the position fixing, station keeping and navigational awareness systems along with an insight of the navigational aspects of the Polar Code.

It is a useful source of vital information for those on shore and at sea involved in ensuring compliance with escalating regulatory requirements. Chapters include: Regulations, e-Navigation, Position Fixing, Radar and Sonar, Arctic navigation, Signalling, Manoeuvring and Positioning, and Recording and Planning.
