Abstract:

The Marine Aids to Navigation ATON System of the United States is an extensive and comprehensive array of devices external to a vessel. It is intended to assist a navigator in determining his position, plotting a safe course, identifying obstructions to navigation, and to promote safe and economic movement of commercial traffic. The United States Coast Guard USCG operates and administers this system which serves the needs of and benefits the maritime commerce, the general boating public and the armed forces. A subgroup of this system is the Short Range Aids SRA to navigate system including navigational devices within visual, audible, radar or low power radiobeacon range. The main concern of the overall project is the buoy platform and excludes the direct and detailed consideration of such related matters as mooring systems, signaling devices, and the much broader consideration of SRA type, arrangement and effectiveness.
