The present publication is the first volume of the two-book set giving a fully up-to-date perspective and overview of the contemporary navigational techniques and addressing technically sophisticated navigational equipment that is becoming increasingly available to the bridge team including such equipment as the INS, i.e. integrated navigation systems and IBS, which is the integrated bridge systems.
Although the technological advances are nowadays at the increasing rate, maritime training lags behind technology. This, in turn, c eventually lead to the inappropriate, and in some cases even dangerous use of the available equipment; in other cases, this equipment is not utilized to the best level of effectiveness.
The intention of the author of this two-volume series was to help the users get better understanding of the modern navigation where technically complex equipment is used - such understanding will let them use all equipment in a safe and effective manner which will significantly contribute to safe handling and navigation of the ship.
These books should not be treated as textbooks to be used when preparing for the exams - it is rather good to let the professionals and trainees comprehend all benefits and issues of the equipment installed on board their vessels. The second volume of the set is devoted to the ECDIS and Positioning.
