Naval Personnel Program Support Activity, Washington, DC.; Bureau of Naval Personnel, Washington, DC.
The subject matter of this training manual is prepared for regular navy and naval reserve personnel. Operations of gyrocompasses and magnetic and magnesyn compasses are discussed with a background of error determination, compass adjustments, and degaussing applications. Navigation techniques are analyzed in terms of piloting, dead reckoning, determination of celestial lines of position, and radar, loran, consol, decca, and omega systems. To train the reader as an assistant to either a navigator or an officer of the deck (OOD) or a junior officer of the deck (JOOD), further explanation is made of ship handling, weather maneuvering, and OOD, JOOD, and navigator duties. Information on rules of the road, publications for navigation use, rating structures, and administration of records and reports is also provided. Besides illustrations for explanation purposes, an edited reprint of the reverse side of the June 1966 pilot chart of the North Atlantic is included in the appendix. (CC)
