Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling the requirements above.

Course specific prerequisites

Knowledge and skills corresponding to the following learning outcomes:

- Identify and analyse traffic situations in open sea and act according to COLREG
- Describe ARPA function and its limitations
- Describe and compare information from visual observations, radar observations and AIS information
- Evaluate radar targets in relative and true motion
- Use logbooks for navigation

from the following courses:

SJM005 Terrestrial navigation and seamanship
SJM015 Collision avoidance

Aim

The course aims at developing students' abilities to identify, analyse and act in complex traffic situations at sea.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

1 Explain and apply the International collision regulations by identify, analyze and act in traffic situations within traffic separation schemes (TSS), narrow channels and in areas with high traffic density.
2 Use trial function in the ARPA and/or Target Tracking-radar
3 Describe pros and cons with different radar setups
4 Describe and use rules and regulations in Ship's routing and Ship Reporting Systems
5 Describe and use the function of a Vessel Traffic Service (VTS)
6 Use logbooks for navigation

Content

Repetition and in-depth knowledge of the International collision regulations 
Use of radar and ARPA or Target Tracking in complex traffic situations
Ship's Routing, Ship Reporting Systems (SRS) and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS)

Organisation

Lectures, simulator exercises and group work.
