CHAPTER 1 Introduction to Navigation Introduction In  this  chapter,  you  will  be  introduced  to  the  world  of  navigation.  As  a Quartermaster,  you  will  be  engaged  in  many  aspects  of  navigation.  As you  will  learn,  navigation  is  known  as  both  an  art  and  a  science. Don’t be  put  off  by  the  science  end  though,  a  basic  knowledge  of  mathematics will  suffice  your  needs.    There  is  no  feeling  that  compares  to  knowing that  you  are  part  of  a  team  that  safely  navigates  a  ship  and  her  crew across  vast  expanses  of  ocean. You  will  be  a  highly  visible  member  of  the  ship’s  crew,  after  all,  your work  station  is  on  the  bridge.  The  bridge  is  where  the  captain  spends most  of  his  or  her  time  under  way.  The  bridge  is  where  the  orders  are given  for  the  ship  to  carry  out  her  mission.  QMs  traditionally  maintain the  highest  standards  of  grooming,  pride,  and  professionalism.  You will  become  the  trusted  assistant  of  the  navigator,  bridge  watch  officers, and the captain. Objectives The  material  in  this  chapter  will  enable  the  student  to: Describe  a  dead  reckoned  track. Describe  the  Terrestrial  Coordinate  System. Measure  distance  on  a  Mercator  projection  chart. Interpret  chart  symbology. Plot  and  extract  positions  on  a  chart. Plot  direction  on  a  chart. Determine  chart  accuracy. Find  charts  using  DMA  Hydrographic  catalog. Describe  the  Chart  Correction  System  and  correct  charts  from  Notice to Mariners. Order,  label,  and  stow  charts. l-l
