AN ANATOMY OF PORT DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION: AIDS TO NAVIGATION

This is the seventh article in the series "An Anatomy of Port Design and Implementation." In it, the author stresses that aids to navigation should be progressively updated as new technology becomes available so as to reduce the possibilities of hazards being created by the use of obsolete equipment. He urges decision makers to assign first priority to safety when selecting aids to navigation at the planning and design stage for new port facilities. His discussion covers marks for position finding; the appearance of a port to an approaching ship; international cooperation on buoyage; the design and implementation processes for an aids to navigation system; a brief review of technological developments affecting such systems; and the role of the International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA).
