Abstract: INTRODUCTION THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION has assignedto the U. S. Coast Guard, a member agency, the responsibility of studying requirements for aids to navigation used by the maritime community in the short distance environment and to develop a National Plan for Navigation.’ The purpose of this article is to suggest how modern methods of command and control presently in being, or in concept stages, could be considered for use in a future navigation system serving the pilot and continental approach waters contiguous to the U.S. coast lines, and including navigable harbours, rivers and bays, providing access to major port facilities, as well as the Great Lakes and access waterways.
