Study on Method of Overcoming Adverse Effects of Radar Blind Zone on Large Fleet in the Three Gorges Reservoir
The completion of the Three Gorges reservoir makes it possible for a fleet with 10, 000 tons or more to proceed directly to Chongqing though the Three Gorges reservoir area. The potential vessel collision risks should be highlighted to large fleets in the Reservoir arising from dead area in the radar blind zones. The analysis of radar blind sectors is of help to overcome the adverse radar conditions and take adequate actions such as piloting, maneuvering, etc. to avoid collisions risks and navigation in radar blind areas.
