Abstract: In response to the identified need for automated coastal navigation and piloting as well as collision avoidance for the NATO hydrofoil, Sperry Systems Management under Navy contract has developed the High Speed Ship Collision Avoidance and Navigation System (HICANS). This system is aboard the USS PEGASUS (PHM-1) and has undergone extensive at-sea testing. This paper describes the system capability for coastal navigation and piloting using both digital charts and TV projection of standard paper charts. It also examines the results to date of the accomplished at-sea system testing.
