AUTOMATED TACTICAL PLOTTING IN THE ROYAL FLEET AUXILIARY

Tracplot, manufactured by Qubit, is essentially an integrated navigation system that also provides for automatic data logging and real-time plotting of a ship and other contact positions. It consists of a navigational processor that accepts and integrates signals from a number of radio navigation systems and ship's sensors. Based on these signals, the processor mathematically computes an optimum position and generates a dead reckoning solution. Position figures and sensor data are then configured into outputs that satisfy the particular requirements of a given user. The system is described in the context of its testing aboard two Royal Fleet Auxiliary vessels operating in the English Channel.
