Abstract
Evaluations were made of closed-circuit television and a Starlight Scope as aids to visual navigation of HMCS Protecteur in Northern waters during Exercise Norploy '73. In general, the television system provided longer range visibility in fog than the human eye, but not quite as long a range as binoculars. Using the Starlight Scope, ships' lights were detected at long range during darkness, and at moderate range hulls and superstructure were resolved. Conclusions and recommendations for further study are presented.
