INVESTIGATION INTO THE EFFECTIVENESS OF A PORT SURVEILLANCE RADAR THROUGH COMPUTER SIMULATION ANALYSIS. ANALYSIS OF RESULTS OBTAINED. PRINCIPLES OF THE AID PROVIDED TO PORT OFFICERS TO TAKE A DECISION
The paper discusses the three-part investigation, which was aimed at studying the effectiveness of various systems. In one part, the investigation consisted of setting up a simulation model making it possible to compare, for a given port and traffic flow, the consequences of the presence or absence of a port surveillance radar. Once the model is adjusted, an economical study of radar effectiveness requires only making two simulations during a given time, one with estimation functions characterizing the presence of radar, the other with those characterizing the absence of radar; and then comparing the results obtained taking into account the criteria. The third part was aimed at deducing through the simulation model the main principles of a conversational system to be used by the authorities responsible for traffic organization in port and its approaches.
