The bibliography contains citations concerning design, development, and testing of collision avoidance techniques for ships and boats. The techniques cover systems, procedures, and rules. Systems include up-graded or automatic plotting for radars, automatic ship bridge systems, sonar, optical range finders, and data processing techniques. Procedures cover traffic management in sealanes and harbors, and ship maneuvers and time available for maneuvering. Rules include proposals on operating regulations in U.S. waters and harbors, with vessel traffic surveys for some harbors, and guidance on ship dynamics applicable to steering in collision avoidance situations.
