Description: This book, first published in 1957, was originally written for the purpose of being a text book for students on the Radar Observer's Course. Gradually however, it also became a practical guide on board ships and at present one can find this handbook in many ships. In later editions the author has tried to combine the two requirements: A school text book on one side and a practical guide on the other.
It is very interesting to go through the eight editions and note how radar techniques, operations and interpretation have changed during the last 36 years and how many devices, introduced by manufacturers to facilitate the use of radar on board, have in fact been rejected by the radar operator.
The straightforward revision questions at the end of the book are incorporated for the use of students not studying in British Institutions. The multi-choice questions are useful for all types of students and colleges; their main purpose is for self-testing for which they are carefully selected.
Altogether the book serves many purposes. Its main aim is as a text or reference book for Merchant Navy Officers while under training or on watch. All that it really does is to describe the picture on the radar screen and to help with the interpretation. But it will also be useful for marine managers and superintendents, radar manufacturers and lecturers at Nautical Colleges.
