Abstract
Report describes results obtained during a sea trial in which a system for the control of engines and helm directly from the bridge was systematically compared with the conventional voice-ordered system. Both systems were used aboard a modern destroyer by six experienced captains each of whom performed measured manoeuvres about a frigate during a period of five days.
