Magnetic Compass in Modern Maritime Navigation

ABSTRACT: This article looks into the role of magnetic compass in providing the navigational safety of the ship. Existing requirements for the magnetic compass at the presence of satellite navigation are not economically justified. Therefore, a new rational requirement is proposed for the accuracy and frequency of deviation compensation work assuring the safety of navigation and cost-effectiveness. The proposed method has been verified by a lab experiment.
