Overview

Maritime navigation has rapidly developed since the publication of the last edition of the title with methods of global position fixing for shipping becoming standardized. As in the previous two editions, this edition will provide a sound basis for the understanding of modern navigation systems and brings the student or professional up-to-date with the latest developments in technology and the growing standardization of maritime navigation techniques.


Developed with close scrutiny from the US Merchant Marine Academy and the major maritime navigation centres in the UK, out-dated techniques have been replaced by an expanded section on the now standard Navstar GPS systems and the Integrated Nav. In addition, a new chapter on the application of electronic charts will also be included, as well as problems at the end of each chapter with worked solutions.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Tetley (navigation and communications systems) and Calcutt (electrical and electronic engineering, both U. of Portsmouth) provide navigators a detailed manual covering the principles and applications of modern systems. The earlier editions were published as (1986) and (1991). Here they include many new systems and techniques, especially computer-based ones, and drop some now obsolete systems. Among recent events they incorporate are the loss of the hyperbolic systems Decca and Omega and relegation of the remaining terrestrial network, Loran-C, to backup for the Geographical Positioning System, and allowing civilians the same accuracy of the GPS as the military.
