HMS Protector and electronic navaids

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  2. They will still have paper charts on board. Unlike what it stated in the article. It's legal requirement under Solas and MCA. However no where as much as they use to.

    Electronic charts service isn't new on warships, so this is a bit of a non story to be honest.

  3. Quite so and it apears that the RN was something of a pioneer (still yonks after merships and even yachties had ECDIS though :)):
     
  4. Being a Nav's Yeo and also ran a business in this industry. I know a fair bit.

    Paper Charts will still be used in some form for a while to come. As we know technology isn't 100% reliable. It's not used as much in the RN as it used to be. However it still is in the Super/Mega Yacht industry as the majority of owners/captains like to have a full sets of both paper and electronic outfits.
