TARGET TRACKING DEVICES (VIDEO)
|D O W N L O A D|
The present training video film was developed to supplement this training booklet and with the ultimate intention to provide a proper and easily accessible introduction to all major technologies that are making up the Target Tracking Devices; another aim of the authors was to describe to the trainees how exactly subject tracking devices are related to each other.
The technologies that have been dealt with in this training video are the ARPA, AIS and ECDIS. The training is primarily intended for the deck team including both senior and junior ship officers. Radar sweeping the surrounding sea, pinpointing ships, coastlines, every sweep plotting a new situation; by using this information together with the information on the speed and course of your vessel, it has long been possible to make a vector triangle identifying any targets. Of course, taking into account the congestion of the shipping lanes with dozens of vessels showing the same sea space and some vessels travelling at high speeds, calculations need to be swift and accurate.
