This is the seventh edition of the Manual prepared and released by the NIMA, standing for the National Imagery and Mapping Agency. The content of the Manual combines some of the sections contained in the previous edition and also several sections of the Maneuvering Board Manual.
The document was compiled by the MSI Center and the NIMA with the intention to be used mainly as an Instruction Manual in navigation schools as well as by both merchant and naval marine people. The authors of the Manual have combined the content of two above mentioned publications in order to provide a practical and useful reference for the mariners sailing on board ships and instructors providing training ashore.
The Manual covers the basic radar principles and their general characteristics, sheds some light on the radar operation giving some fundamental information necessary to understand the rest of the material, provides instructions on collision avoidance and radar navigation, and also addresses ARPA, i.e. auto radar plotting aids.
The last chapter of the volume contains the maneuvering board manual. There are several appendices concluding the book and providing some additional information including extracts from the relevant regulations, compact yet informative glossary of terms, describing the relative motion problems etc.
