If the time the ships proceed to these latitudes and longitudes is the same the collision of the ships is unavoidable and by the time identified the head-on situation is immediately indicated. If the time is different the ships will not be able to reach the same point and the collision will be avoided. The attempts have been also made to evaluate the minimal admitted inequality of time when the ships' safe passage without maneuvering is considered possible. This method is rather attractive because it does not require any additional measurements and it is not neces-sary to attract the Officer-in-Charge away from his main responsibility ? to control the situation round the ship.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Marine Traffic Control, Automatic Identification System (AIS), Closequarter Situation of Ships, Clearing-up Situation, Collision Avoidance, Ships Collision, Officer-in-Charge} }
