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from the US Merchant Marine Academy and the major maritime navigation centres in the UK, out-dated techniques have been replaced by an expanded section on the now standard Navstar GPS systems and the Integrated Nav.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.... such ships will be taken permanently out of service within two years after the implementation date specified in paragraph 1. 3 AIS shall: 3.1 provide automatically to appropriately equipped shore stations, other ships and aircraft information, including the shipa#39;s identity ... The module has been developed for use with Saab TransponderTechs AIS hardware for which ICAN is the exclusive Canadian agent.
