THE CHARACTERISTICS OF NAVIGATORS ON THE MANEUVERS FOR AVOIDING COLLISION

It is the purpose of this paper to deal with the characteristic of navigators on the maneuvers for avoiding collision in connection with the sense of sight or time and the evading distance delta L. Delta L is the remainder of DCPA in the beginning and completion of avoiding maneuvers. It becomes clear by analysis of the radar films that delta L has following connection with R,R, V and m, delta L less than or equal to K(R,R,V,m)th where R, V and and m are respectively the relative distance, relative velocity and DCPA of the two vessels at beginning of maneuver for avoiding collision, and k and h are constant. A navigator is not likely to be sensible of the relative bearing velocity of the privileged vessel and experiments about his sense of distance at sea were also performed.
