    Abstract

    Command & Control (C2) is required for safe and effective maritime operations. To facilitate effective decision-making and C2, it is essential that the crew can access the required information. It is therefore essential that the appropriate information architecture is used. Navigation, being an essential aspect of C2, has seen a radical change from paper charts and individual instruments to computer systems capable of sophisticated data fusion to provide enhanced situational awareness. The development of the required information architecture is not a software/engineering issue, but rather lies within the human factors domain as it requires an understanding of how humans perceive information, how they use mental models and subsequently make safe and effective decisions
