Abstract: THIS PAPER DESCRIBES a new concept for solving the age-old “navigation problem” confronting the conning officer on commercial seagoing vessels. Unlike other navigational devices, this total systems approach stresses the point that in order for a system to be truly effective it, must be capable of (a) collecting all available navigational data rapidly on a continuous basis, (b) weighing and evaluating this data in much the same fashion as an experienced conning officer would, and (c) selecting the best course of action to follow under a given set of conditions.
