Integrated Bridge Systems Vol 1 & 2 - Set [Radar & AIS (2008) & ECDIS & Positioning (2010)]
The Integrated Bridge Systems series gives an up to date perspective on navigational techniques using the increasingly sophisticated equipment becoming available to bridge staff. Technology advances at an ever-increasing rate and provision of maritime training lags behind, leading to ineffective, inappropriate and dangerous use of equipment. These books provide a thorough grounding to help mariners.
“As a master mariner who graduated in the early 1990s, I feel that the two Integrated Bridge Systems books, Radar and AIS and ECDIS and Positioning, are very interesting and instructive. I have been searching for books like this for years. During my education, GPS was in its infancy and AIS and ECDIS were not in the syllabus at all. This has resulted in gaps in my knowledge and I’m very happy plugging those gaps by reading these books.” Robert Bodin, Kullavik, Sweden
