This book is the essential text for students undertaking an ETO course leading to examinations in electronic principles, navigational aids and radio maintenance.
1. Basic electronics: Insulators and conductors Resistance Capacitance Inductance Semiconductors Signal shaping Operational amplifiers Transformers Amplifiers and oscillators Power supplies Digital devices and systems Displays Measuring instruments 2.Navigational Aids - theory and fault finding: Micro computers Gyro compass Autopilot Steering gear Echo sounder Speed log Automatic identification system (AIS) Long range identification and tracking (LRIT) Global positioning system (GPS) Differential GPS Loran C eLoran Radar Automatic Radar Plotting Aid (ARPA) Electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) Voyage data recorder (VDR) Navtex Bridge equipment system level fault finding 3 - Radio Communications: Radiation and propagation Amplitude and angle modulation Radio transmitters Radio receivers Receiver characteristics Global maritime distress and safety system (GMDSS)
Divided into three sections, the book covers the complete syllabus for Electrotechnology Officers as specified by the Association of Marine Electronic and Radio Colleges (AMERC), with a series of worked examples and self-study questions to assist in student understanding. The book introduces basic electronics, the theory of how a range of navigational aids works, and radio communications including GMDSS. Fault finding to component and sub system level is also included. Importantly, this is the first textbook to be aimed primarily at ETOs, covering the changes to the STCW 2010. An essential buy.
