Abstract:

PILOT is an electronic aid for navigation in piloting waters. It consists of an OEM microprogrammable graphics terminal configured to receive Loran and ships gyro inputs. Software in the terminal computes a fix and outputs vessel position in both digital and graphic representation. A number of display modes are available to the operator through a customized 23 key keypad in addition to augmentations such as range and bearing to a point or projection of vessels future position. Procedures are given for installing PILOT aboard a ship and interfacing it to a Loran receiver. Operating instructions are detailed for all of its navigation and piloting functions. Additionally, a product description of the Internav LC404 Loran receiver is included since this is the unit presently used for PILOT. Author
