Considerable interest has recently been shown in the field of marine traffic engineering. Real life data sources made available for maritime studies are often expensive and inconvenient to collect. The marine radar simulator presents the researcher with a relatively inexpensive and readily available source of navlgatlonal data. With the improvement of remote vessel traffic monitoring systems the potential for inexpensive real life data analysis Is enhanced. The work of this study has been to allow the analysis of data archived from the Channel Navigation Information Service Automatic Data Processing system (CNIS AOP) installed at St. Margarets Bay Dover using contemporary digital computer graphical facilities, and to compare mariners' behaviour In a real life and simulator collision avoidance situation. For this comparison certain navigational situations known as encounters have been automatically detected using an extension of the Range to Domain Over Range Rate (RDRR) method (Colley et al 1983), referred to as the RDRR+ technique. A statistical comparison has been completed using non parametric techniques.
