SOME LIMITATIONS OF MARINE ELECTRONIC NAVIGATION SYSTEMS

What is a dire necessity to one shipowner is a matter of complete indifference to another. Although it is obviously a continuing process the author has tried over 18 months to determine where are the significant areas in which present electronic aids do not yet appear to meet user requirements. He has asked - is the shortcoming due to a lack of specific equipment or to a technical limitation in present equipment? Why has the limitation not been previously removed? Is it due to system complexity, probably combined with unacceptable cost or some factors more fundamental? This paper attempts to identify some of the limitations and to discuss briefly some fo the options that could be available for their reduction and possible elimination.
