The Navigation Brief Purpose Content The  purpose  of  the  navigation  brief  is  to  provide  a  standard  procedure that  all  ships  follow  prior  to  getting  under  way  or  entering  port.  The briefing  is  presented  by  the  navigator  to  the  commanding  officer  and  all key  personnel  and  provides  a  forum  for  discussion  of  the  anticipated ship  movement.  The  joint  Commander  Naval  Surface  Forces  Atlantic and  Pacific  Instruction  3530.2,  Navigation  Standards  and  Procedures, provides  specific  guidance  on  the  minimum  requirements  of  the  contents of  the  navigation  briefing. The  following  table  lists  items  that  may  be  found  on  the  navigation  brief and  is  meant  for  illustrative  purposes  only.  Do  not  rely  solely  on  this table  but  rather  the  joint  instruction  3530.2  when  constructing  a navigation  briefing. Item Description Watch   Assignments All  key  individuals  are  identified  by  name;  for example,  the  OOD,  JOOD,  EOOW,  CICWO, and  helm  safety  officer. Charts All  charts  and  tracks  are  reviewed.  Information briefed  includes  items  such  as  course  and  speed of  each  leg,  all  dangers  and  hazards,  NAVAIDs, port  requirements,  demarcation  lines,  emergency anchorages,  and  turn  bearings. Engineering The status of the engineering plant is reported. Navigation The  status  of  all  navigation  equipment  is Equipment reported. Environmental Tide  and  current  data  is  briefed  for  each  leg  of Conditions the  transit.  Forecasted  weather  is  briefed. Pilot  and  Tugs Pilot  pickup  or  drop  off  is  briefed  along  with  the number  of  tugs  anticipated. Construction The  actual  construction  of  the  navigation  brief  varies  from  ship  to  ship. Some  ships  use  preapproved  forms  while  others  use  word  processors  or data  bases  to  construct  a  navigation  brief.  For  either  case  the  senior Quartermaster  and  the  navigator  usually  gather  all  required  information for  the  navigation  briefing. 12-21
