Target Angle -Continued
As the aircraft shown in figure 8 approaches the ship, the position angle increases. Inform all stations when the angle changes more than 20°. Use the aids shown   in   figure   9   to   help   you   more   accurately determine an aircraft's position angle. Target  Angle Target angle is the relative bearing of your ship from another ship. You may wonder why you should care what your ship bears from another ship, but it can be of great help to the OOD if you include target angle in your report. The OOD uses target angle as an aid in determining the  course  of  action  to  take  when  another  ship  is encountered. Target angle is also useful in gunnery and antisubmarine  operations.  Assume  that  you  are  the starboard lookout and you detect a ship on your star- board  bow  heading  at  right  angles  across  your  course (figure 10). You report to the OOD SHIP BROAD ON THE STARBOARD BOW (OR 045°)—TARGET ANGLE 315. Assuming your course to be due north, the OOD knows the other ship's course is due west. Depending on the speeds  of  the  two  ships,  if  they  continue  on  their present  course,  a  collision  may  result.  Under  the International  Rules  of  the  Road,  this  condition  is known as a crossing situation, and in a crossing situa- tion the ship to port is the give-way vessel and must keep clear of the other (stand-on) vessel. Your target angle  report  has  alerted  the  OOD  that  a  change  of course or speed, or both, may be needed and there is now  time  in  which  to  plan  appropriate  actions.  A 21
