OCIMF: Navigational assessments and audits maintain high standards

OCIMF released the information paper ‘A Guide to Best Practice for Navigational Assessments and Audits’ which will help vessel owners, operators and Masters to identify opportunities for improvement on the safety onboard and the protection of the environment through navigational assessments and audits.

BRM: Avoiding the Single Point of Failure

The fundamental principal in Bridge Resource Management (BRM) is that vessel navigation and operation is not one-man show. BRM makes use of all available resources onboard (equipment, information, human resource) to ensure the safe completion of vessel’s voyage. Likewise in all operating systems, the navigation and handling of vessel should be protected by a single point of failure.

From small steps to giant leaps: digitalisation on the bridge

USCG informs of GPS satellite maintenance on 22, 23 June

The US Navigation Center posted a notice alerting users of the Global Positioning System that there is possibility of a short period with high Horizontal Dilution of Precision (HDOP) / Position Dilution of Precision (PDOP) in certain locations, because of satellite maintenance.

GPS common problems and how to mitigate them

Navigation relies heavily to the Global Positioning System. This is because it is easy to use, accurate and reliable. However, GPS signals can be compromised by both natural and human sources. If that happens it can lead to inaccurate data or complete loss of GPS signal, North P&I Club informs.
