Theory of the marine compasses can be understood by applying some imagination and is not that complicated. However, the information contained in most of the books available today lack clarity and it makes the process of understanding a bit more difficult. The author of this volume has made every effort to present the information in a simple way so that it can be understood by all categories of readers, from newcomers to the professional mariners.
The book starts with the syllabus of the STCW 1995 convention, followed by the info on the free gyroscope. Then, there are two chapters dealing with the damped and undamped gravity controlled gyroscopes. The errors encountered in the gyro compasses have been dealt with in a separate chapter. Same applies to the follow-up systems, transmission systems and the associated performance tests.
The author has also included several real life examples of the application of the contemporary compasses. Numerous exercises have been included for better training process and they are all supplemented with the correct answers. We recommend this publication to anyone interested in the construction and working principles of the gyro compasses.
