Radar and Electronic Navigation, Sixth Edition discusses radar in marine navigation, underwater navigational aids, direction finding, the Decca navigator system, and the Omega system. The book also describes the Loran system for position fixing, the navy navigation satellite system, and the global positioning system (GPS). This comprehensive reference explains the many processes needed for creating radar systems and navigation aids. Selected topics include antennas, radar targets, Doppler radar, atmospheric probing, mathematical preliminaries, hyperbolic navigation, aircraft homing systems, navigation measuring techniques, satellite navigation, and more.

New York, McGraw-Hill Book Co., (OCoLC) Use radar to track and avoid squalls, outmaneuver competitors in a yacht race, and other specialized tasks ; Interface your radar with a digital compass, GPS, or electronic chart "This book will turn you into an expert on small-craft radar operations. It covers everything--radar choice, installation, use, and how to interface with your electronics/5(27).

Pulse radar systems act as the eyes of a ship during periods of reduced visibility and are thus one of the most important navigational aids. Increasingly, information obtained from radar is now processed by computers to create an automatic anti-collision device (Automatic Radar Plotting Aid - ARPA) to give advance warning of potential navigation by: 1. Navigation by Pilotage •Pilotage navigation requires good visibility •With aid of air-borne radar it is called as Electronic-Pilotage •The radar used for this purpose is microwave search radar provided with PPI display on which the terrain is mapped •The PPI picture has File Size: 9MB.

Bhattacharya: Book Summary: During the last few years after the publication of the first edition, new application areas of Radar System and Radio Aids to Navigation emerged and led to phenominal development of these systems in certain directions.5/5(1). Navigating using Radar First, when plotted on the chart, the VRM range will give you a very accurate COP, and the EBL back bearing will allow you to establish a reasonable Estimated Position (EP). However, if you can identify two navigation aids or features on your display, use the VRM values from each object to plot both Size: 2MB.
