LOOP NOT CLOSED – 325.jpg

Although such an order does not exist in IMO Standard Marine Communication Phrases, we would like to encourage ANYBODY involved in bridge operations to take this pool.

Thru connected sensors, it is possible to determine if the ship's Rate of Turn speed matches pre-set Rate of Turn.

This will trigger three short buzzes. We feel that addition of this feature would be beneficial for steering operations due to following reasons:

  • It will alarm if the rate of turn speed does not match pre-set ROT speed when issuing helm orders by course.

  • It will alarm if the rate of turn speed does not match the required ROT speed when issuing helm orders by Rate of Turn.

  • It will provide an early warning if the turn of the ship slows unexpectedly due to rudder position, wind, current, rudder malfunction, etc.

Please take below poll with following options:

  • Useful feature - addition of this feature will increase safety

  • Unnecessary - addition of this feature will not improve safety

  • Dangerous - this feature could cause unwanted distraction
