Summary
Radar and ARPA Manual provides essential information for professional mariners and seagoing marine engineers, including those undertaking electronic navigation system courses and marine operations qualifications internationally. This fully revised new edition serves as the most comprehensive reference on equipment and techniques for radar observers using older and newer systems. Suitable for use both as a professional reference and a training text, the book has been updated to reflect the trend away from independent to integrated equipment and now covers the inter-relationship between radar/ARPA, AIS, GPS and ECDIS. Comprising all aspects of radar, from basic principles through to target detection, operational controls, navigation techniques and collision avoidance, Radar and ARPA Manual is a practical, tried-and-tested guide to radar, ARPA and integrated bridge systems and their role in marine navigation. Covers best practice use of equipment as well as underlying principles, with essential mathematics and complicated concepts illustrated through the use of numerous clear illustrations. Includes excerpts from all relevant International Maritime Organization (IMO) safety and performance standards relating to radar and navigational technology on new and established vessels. Updated to reflect the trend away from independent to integrated equipment and cover the inter-relationship between radar/ARPA, AIS, GPS and ECDIS
