The operator's guide for the CyScan PRS, i.e. position reference sensor. The document starts with the introduction providing the part names and serial numbers plus software versions, followed by the chapters with the instructions on the proper use of the system including screen layout, navigation, alarms and controls. The other three chapters provide the troubleshooting tips with the possible problems and proposed remedies, alarm codes information on fuses/indicators, valuable technical notes including targets, divergence and operation in low temperatures and technical specifications.
A K-Pos system with Follow Target mode lias one of two available configurations: - Follow Single Mobile Target; - Follow Multiple Mobile Targets. Follow Single Mobile Target enables the ships to automatically follow the moving targets and keeps the vessel within a "position window" relative to the targets. The moving target must be equipped with a mobile reference transponder or laser reflector in order for the K-Pos system to monitor its relative position. If, for example, the moving target is ROV, then the ship shall be equipped with the HPR, standing for the Hydroacoustic Position Reference system. In addition to a mobile reference transponder on the target, an additional fixed position-reference system is required, such as DGPS or a fixed transponder deployed on the seabed. You can define a circle of operation within which the target can move without causing the ship to move. The vessel only moves when the target reaches the boundary of this circle. The radius of this circle (the "reaction radius") can be up to 1000 m.
The Autopilot mode enables the vessel to steer along a selected course by accurately and automatically controlling the vessel's heading. This mode is using the vessel's propellers and rudders or azimuth thrusters. The Autopilot (Heading control system) has a mark of conformity (wheelmark) as per MED requirements. The vessel speed is controlled from the joystick on the operator's panel or from manual levers (requires the K-Thrust thruster control system). Reference made also to these sections of the relevant K-Pos (OS) Operator Manual' - Sensors; Joystick settings; Changing the heading setpoint; Alarm limits dialog box - Position page (heading limits); Heading dialog box - Rate Of Turn page; Thruster Allocation dialog box.
The DP Capability and Motion Prediction Analysis functions are used to analyse and predict operational margins for your vessel and the effects of single-point failures. The basis for the analyses is the PRESENT environmental conditions (relative to the vessel heading) specified by the operator. Due to the cyclic nature of the analysis program, i.e. that the analysis is run automatically at preset intervals, you should evaluate the PRESENT environmental conditions regularly, and input new values if they have changed significantly. Be aware that: - All directions are to be specified relative to compass north (TRUE NORTH); - The sea current amplitude is "real" current and not "DP" current. Both the DP Capability Analysis and the Motion Prediction Analysis functions can be run in On-line or Off-line mode. When On-line Running mode is selected, online DP variables are used to adjust the calculations. Analyses are performed cyclically (usually every five minutes), provided the system has first settled for at least 2.5 minutes in Auto Position mode and with statuses PRESENT HEADING and PRESENT POSITION. These statuses are indicated on the status bar at the bottom of the screen. When the above stated conditions are met. the operator can also start a new analysis at any time.

The system utilizes low power solid state microwave oscillators operating in the 9 GHz band, providing a max range of 30000 m with line of sight. The minimum range is as low as 10 metres. It comprises two identical, user-configurable stations. One station is configured as FIX station, to be set up on a known, fixed location; the other station is configured as MOBILE (MOB) station and is installed on the ship of which the position is to be fixed. Each station consists of an ABS, standing for the Artemis Basic Unit, on top of which a radar-like tracking antenna is mounted, and either a BOP, i.e. Basic Operating Panel or an EOP, i.e. Extended Operating Panel. The BOP is a hand-held size unit and is intended for use with the FIX station. It needs only to be connected to the FIX station's ABU to enter specific station set-up data (e.g., reference azimuth). Once the station is set up it can be disconnected. The EOP is intended for use with the MOBILE station. Functionally it is identical to the BOP, but it facilitates connection of a variety of peripheral equipment. The ABU design reflects the use of a microprocessor to make a large number of powerful features available to the user, yet making the system very friendly to operate. Among the features are: full remote control and monitoring of the counter station (once operational), position data (including heading) available at both stations, selectable microwave frequency pairs and an auxiliary full duplex data channel.

The Outlaws of the Atlantic is one of the most popular publications on the naval history touching so dramatic world of the maritime adventures. Written by the award-winning naval historian, the book literally turns the marine industry upside down - it shows the history from the viewpoint of commoners - pirates, sailors, slaves and other outlaws of the sea from late XVII to the early XIX century. With a keen eye for these characters, the author shows how the maritime actors shaped the history. The reader will know how merchant sailors organize, inspired and maintained the democratic structures both outside and within the laws at the time. It all resulted in the book exploring the maritime history "from below". According to the readers review, this book is really awesome and containing huge number of information that would be very difficult in other ones. A great reading for all people interested in naval history and very informative source from a very well known and world respected historian. The readers will definitely enjoy the background history of the present volume providing them with the detailed information on how the merchant seafarers used to organize, inspire and maintain the democratic structures within and also outside the laws for more than three centuries. In fact, this volume presents an excellent collection of the specific historical papers.
The naval ships of the German Navy fleet that participated in the Second World War are deservedly treated as one of the most popular subjects in the whole naval history, and the present publication compiled jointly by Klaus-Peter Schmolke and Gerhard Koop has been already appreciated by all naval enthusiasts and found to be one of the best collections available. In fact, it is one out of the six volumes prepared by these authors, with each of the volumes dedicated to one particular class of ships. This book addresses the Deutschland class warships. It provides readers with the finely detailed technical description of the warship, outline of the services and numerous informative and perfectly illustrated ship plans, maps of the naval battles and quite substantial collection of photos. Apart from the professional naval historians, the book will be of great use for the ship modelers who are willing to build a model of the Deutschland/Lutzow class and require a good pictorial reference. The texts and statistics presented by the authors are very informative and useful. Note that the drawings included in the book are very correct and the main content starts with some general historical overview, followed by the chapters on the operational life of the vessels and the overview of the overall success of those ships.
