Abstract:

The report deals with the design and use of a Relative Bearing and Target Angle Trainer. The device was successfully used in classroom instruction. The equipment is cheaply and easily made, and its use is recommended to all training stations where basic instruction in relative bearings and target angles is conducted. This trainer presents a birds eye or aerial view of the models to the class and has, consequently, the shortcomings inherent in all such devices. It should be used in the initial stages of training only, during the explanation of the basic principles of relative bearing estimation, since drill in estimating relative bearings and target angles on any such birds eye view trainer will not consistently transfer to skill in reporting the bearing or the target angle of a ship sighted.
