Abstract:

This manual is intended to supplement the system design guidelines presented in Chapter 4 of the Aids to Navigation Manual - Administration COMDTINST M16500.7. It provides procedures for designing or evaluating systems of aids in restricted waterways navigated by deep draft vessels. As such, it is an appropriate tool for use by the District Aids to Navigation Branch when conducting regularly scheduled waterways evaluations under the Waterways Analysis and Management System WAMS COMDTINST M16500.11. Besides its structured approach to system design and evaluation, the manual provides a measure of quality for candidate aid configurations. This measure of quality is presented as an assessment of risk, providing the District or Headquarters analyst with an objective, quantifiable measure of effectiveness to support operational and budgetary decisions.
