ANALYSIS OF THE PERFORMANCE OF AIDS TO NAVIGATION

A two-year project is underway to model the relationship between measurable, physical properties of aids to navigation and the accuracy of navigation. The methodology to be used is a Monte Carlo simulation of the closed loop control system consisting of the mariner, the ship, environment and the aids to navigation. In addition to serving as a tool to evaluate aids to navigation, the model will also permit the evaluation of safe ship and environmental characteristics for specific ports.
