The navigational decision support system supplements the existing range of equipment and systems intended for sea-going ship conduct. One of the basic tasks of such systems is an analysis of a navigational situation and solving collision situations. A well functioning navigational decision support system should feature a decision-maker?s (navigator?s) knowledge representation. This refers to both explicit knowledge - procedural, declarative, heuristic, and tacit knowledge - empirical associations. The article presents assumptions of navigational knowledge base and its realization in the presently designed navigational decision support system.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Safety of Navigation, Collision Situation, Knowledge Representation, Decision Support System (DSS), Ship's Navigational Decision Support System, Neural networks, Decision Tables, Decision Trees} }
