CHAPTER 1 - INTRODUCTIONA. Aids to Navigation Manual.1. Purpose. The Coast Guard operates and administers the United States Aids toNavigation System. The principal policy statements, administrative practices, andtechnical information needed to establish, operate, and maintain those parts of thesystem which have audio, visual, radar, or radio characteristics are presented inthis manual.2. Content. This Manual contains instructions and policies governing the operationand maintenance of federally controlled visual, audio, radar, and radio aids tonavigation, along with administrative instruction for field units and commandsneeded to support the aids to navigation system. Reference material is includedwhere the source documents are not widely distributed. References are also madeto Coast Guard and other Federal publications, various Commandant Instructions,and standard seamanship texts.3. Use. This Manual is intended only for the internal guidance of personnelinvolved in the administration of the Coast Guard's aids to navigation program.The high expectations of performance contained in this manual are intended toencourage public service above and beyond the minimum threshold of due care.This guidance is not a substitute for applicable legal requirements. It is notintended to nor does it impose legally binding requirements on any party.Any requirements or obligations created by this manual flow only from thoseinvolved in Coast Guard aids to navigation administration to the Coast Guard, andthe Coast Guard retains the discretion to deviate or authorize deviation from theserequirements. This Manual creates no duties or obligations to the public tocomply with the procedures described herein, and no member of the public shouldrely upon these procedures as a representation by the Coast Guard as to themanner of performance of our aids to navigation mission. Questions orcomments from the public concerning compliance with any statutory orregulatory requirements referenced in the manual should be addressed toCommandant (CG-5413).4. Organization.a. The Aids to Navigation Manual is published in six separate volumes:(1) Aids to Navigation Manual – Positioning, COMDTINST M16500.1(series).

Pertinent Commandant Instructions and Noticeswill normally be found in the following series: 10500 and 16500.B. Short Range Aids to Navigation Systems.1. Definition. A short range aids to navigation system is a group of interactingexternal reference devices intended to collectively provide sufficient and timelyinformation with which to safely navigate within and through a waterway whenused in conjunction with updated nautical charts and other commonly availablematerial. The system includes all navigation devices within visual, audio, or radarrange of the mariner. The term "aids to navigation system" is also used to refer tothe particular marking scheme used by a system of aids. Most aids to navigationemploy the U.S. Marking System or a variation of this standard system.Complete descriptions of each marking system are contained in Chapters 4 and 5of this manual.2. System Types.a. The U. S. Aids to Navigation System. The U. S. Aids to Navigation System isa predominantly lateral system which is consistent with Region Brequirements of the International Association of Marine Aids to Navigationand Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) Maritime Buoyage System, except U.S.possessions west of the International Date Line and south of 10 degrees northlatitude, which follow IALA Region A.b. The Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) Marking System. This variation of the U.S.Marking System is employed along the Atlantic and Gulf IntracoastalWaterways. It differs from the standard U. S. Marking System by displayingdistinctive yellow bands, triangles, or squares to connote ICW significance.c. The Western Rivers Marking System. This system differs from the U. S. Aidsto Navigation System due to the unstable nature of the river waters andchannels. Chapter 4 outlines these differences in detail. The Coast Guardoperates this system on the Mississippi River, its tributaries, South Pass andSouthwest Pass to the navigational demarcation lines dividing the high seasfrom harbors, rivers and other inland waters of the United States. It is alsoused on the following rivers and waterways(1) Port Allen-Morgan City Alternate Route,CH-11-2

(2) That part of the Atchafalaya River above its junction with the Port AllenMorgan City Alternate Route including Old River.(3) The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway,(4) Tombigbee River,(5) Black Warrior River,(6) Alabama River,(7) Coosa River,(8) Mobile River above Cochrane Bridge at St. Louis Point,(9) Flint River,(10) Chattachoochee River, and(11) Apalachicola River above its confluence with the Jackson River.d. Private Aids to Navigation. Private aids should conform to the existingsystem in which they are placed. Rules for establishing and inspecting privateaids are contained in Chapter 5.C. Coast Guard Authority.1. General Authority. The Coast Guard has authority to:a. Develop, administer, and operate Short Range Aids to Navigation Systems toserve the needs of maritime commerce and the Armed Forces.b.

only inertial navigation system. Objective of the proposal: The objective of the proposal is a combination of the existing inertial navigation system (INS) with global position system (GPS) for more accurate navigation of the launchers. The project's product will be navigation algorithms software package and hardware units.

navigation in rural environments through a novel mapless driving framework that combines sparse topological maps for global navigation with a sensor-based perception system for local navigation. First, a local navigation goal within the sensor view of the vehicle is chosen as a waypoint leading towards the global goal.

the autonomous navigation of these systems. The global positioning system (GPS) is used for external autonomous navigation [1]. Because GPS signals are typically absent or weak indoors, autonomous navigation is difficult [2]. There are various approaches for independent indoor navigation which have been proposed in recent years.
