A Radar Display for Collision Avoidance

P. C. H. Clissold
1966 Journal of navigation  
It is, I believe, generally agreed that if the aspect of a ship could be seen on the radar screen from a range of 4 or 5 miles down, the information provided by the radar picture would be sufficient to prevent collisions from occurring. The aspect cannot be directly observed on an ordinary 3-cm. marine radar, but I think such a set could be modified in the following way to enable the aspect to be shown.
