CAIRO BOOKS's Description
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major maritime navigation centres in the UK, out-dated techniques have been
replaced by an expanded section on the now standard Navstar GPS systems and the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.
Thoroughly revised and up-dated to conform to stricter training requirements
mandated by the STCW-95 amendments.
Expanded section on Navstar GPS systems, the now standard global position
Up-dated and expanded section on integrated navigation.
