Read full description of the books Human Factors for Naval Marine Vehicle Design and Operation:

There is a driving need for naval professionals to focus on human factors issues. The number of maritime accidents is increasing and the chief cause is human error, both by the designer and the operator. Decreasing crew size, lack of experienced operators, operations in higher sea states and fatigue worsen the situation. Automation can be a partial solution, but flawed automated systems actually contribute to accidents at sea. Up to now, there has been no overarching resource available to naval marine vehicle designers and human factors professionals which bridges the gap between the human and the machine in this context. Designers understand the marine vehicle; human factors professionals understand how a particular environment affects people. Yet neither has a practical understanding of the other's field, and thus communicating requirements and solutions is difficult. This book integrates knowledge from numerous sources as well as the advice of a panel of eight recognized experts in the fields of related research, development and operation. The result is a reference that bridges the communications gap, and stands to help enhance the design and operation of all naval marine vehicles.

Read information about the author

Ebook Human Factors for Naval Marine Vehicle Design and Operation read Online! Jonathan Ross grew up in St. Thomas, the Mojave Desert, and Cocoa Beach. He remembers St. Thomas from boyhood summer vacations spent exploring the wild bays and mountains of his stepfather's estate, the setting for his novel, "The Jumbee's Daughter." He served in the Navy as an enlisted submariner in the Pacific Ocean and as a commissioned Engineering Duty Officer at Rota, Spain. He was inspired to write "Death in a Carolina Swamp," based on a U-Boat of the same vintage of his submarine. During his career and extensive travel in the US, Europe, and Asia, he was intrigued by the idea of someone who could smell human emotions, from love to loathing, and that idea inspired "The Scent of Death." He speaks fluent Spanish and enough French to order a nice meal and find directions. His passions are writing (eight novels, one non-fiction), music (he plays harmonica, bagpipes, and fiddle), ballroom dancing, and travel. He lives with his wife near Annapolis MD, home of the US Naval Academy. You may contact Jonathan Ross at jonathanrossnovels@gmail.com
