Abstract:

The report deals with the design and use of a Vessel Length Calculator developed at NTS Recognition, Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. While this device was originally intended to be used in the computation of the length of a vessel sighted at sea, under certain known conditions, it has much broader applications to the field of navigation and surveying which, it is felt, could be of value to the Navy Department. A model of this device is submitted, along with a description of its use.
