OPERATIONAL USE OF INTEGRATED BRIDGE SYSTEMS — IMO MODEL COURSE 1.32
|D O W N L O A D|
The use of the IBS and the INS, standing for the integrated bridge and integrated navigation systems, correspondingly, installed on board modern seagoing vessels, requires sufficient knowledge which would normally be well beyond the regular training scope for the officers. That was the main reason for designing the present model course – the idea was to provide necessary additional training on the operation and use of the subject systems, duly recognizing the fact that their arrangement can significantly differ.
The trainees are expected to have some very essential understanding of the subject and the IMO Model Course 7.03 “Office in Charge of a Navigational Watch” is a pre-requisite. The course will start with the introductory information on the INS and IBS where the main terminology is explained and some insights into the relevant IMO standard are given.
The second section discusses the benefits of using the integrated bridge systems, followed by the chapters where the bridge procedures are covered together with the basic principles of their use. The chapters on the automatic control functions of the integrated navigation systems and familiarization training conclude the course.
