EXPERIMENTAL RADAR DATA COMPUTER, PROTOTYPE NO. 1. TECHNICAL MANUAL, VOLUME 1: THEORY OF OPERATION AND OPERATION

Existing marine radar require augmentation with data measurements, plotting and computation in many navigational situations. Experience has shown that human capabilities are too slow for many situations, that personnel are often unavailable for this effort in the press of other duties and that mistakes are easily made. The experimental Radar Data Computer (RDC), prototype no. 1, is intended to minimize these disadvantages and enable more efficient utilization of the inherent information. The RDC is a developmental tool to be utilized as a navigational aid for ships, especially in collision avoidance, coastwise navigation and piloting. Volume 1 of the technical manual contains the theory of and procedures for operation of the RCD.
