3 IMO Resolutions A.278 (VIII) und A.477 (XII) Performance Standards for Navigational Radar Equipment. Based on IMO Model Course 1.07. 2 The corner reflector (used for measurement), is taken as 10 m 2 for X-Band and 1.0 m 2 for S-Band. PERFORMANCE STANDARDS FOR AUTOMATIC RADAR PLOTTING AIDS. This fully revised new edition covers the complete radar/ARPA installation, including AIS (Automatic Identification System) and ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display & Information Systems). ObjectivesObjectives At the end of the grading period, the students will be able to demonstrates a knowledge and understanding of the following: â¢ Fundamental Principle of Radar â¢ Safe Distance â¢ Radiation Hazards and Precaution â¢ Characteristics of Radar Sets and Factors Affecting â¦ It serves as the most comprehensive and up-to â¦ [As on 01/Jan/97, as per IMO assembly resolution A.823(19)] INTRODUCTION ARPA should in order to improve the standards of collision avoidance at sea : 1. After all, ARPA and AIS only give us CPA / TCPA for a present moment, if ships parameters do not change. Radar and ARPA (Automatic Radar Plotting Aids) are standard systems on all commercial vessels and are widely used in the leisure maritime sector. 1 IMO Resolution A.42 2 (XI) Performance Standards for Automatic Radar Plotting Aids (ARPA).Google Scholar. 3.4.2 The design should be such that any malfunction of ARPA parts producing information additional to information to be produced by the radar as required by the performance standards for navigational equipment adopted by IMO should not affect the integrity of the basic radar presentation.

A trainee successfully completing this course and meeting the required performance standards will recognise when radar should be in use; will select a suitable mode and range setting for the circumstances; will be able to set the controls for optimal performance; and will be aware of equipment limitations in accurately detecting targets. IMO Performance standards for ARPA require ships over 10,000gt to Select one: a. Manually acquire at least 40 targets b. CPA accuracy within 1M after 3 mins of tracking c. TCPA accuracy within 0.3 secs after 3 mins of tracking d. all of above IMO Performance Standards for ARPA - Free download as PDF File (.pdf), Text File (.txt) or read online for free. 1 IMO revised performance standards for radar reflectors (resolution MSC.164(78)) Å Radar Cross Section (RCS) 7.5 m 2 for X-Band, 0.5 m 2 for S-Band. We might think radar plotting is an outdated skill, and ARPA can help us to solve any situation, but statistics say that the majority of collisions happens due to incorrect assessment of the situation or lack of awareness. Radar and ARPA Manual provides essential information for professional mariners, including those on training courses for electronic navigation systems and professional certificates internationally.
