COLLISION AVOIDANCE DEVICES ONBOARD U.S. NAVY SHIPS

This report is a description and concept evaluation of the results of fleet experience with two computer aided collision avoidance devices. Four Atlantic and Pacific ships, including three 1052 class destroyer escorts, and one auxiliary service ship participated in the study. Analysis of at-sea data and observations demonstrate that the collision avoidance concept can enhance shipping safety, reduce peacetime workload of the CIC and can eliminate the need for having more than one radar repeater on the bridge.
