man bridge operation. If a radar, ECDIS or Bridge Panel is operated within the select-

an alarm to tell the OOW. If that alarm is not acknowledged at the bridge, the alarm is
then sent to the Cabin Panel in the quarters of the back-up officer and all the Cabin
Panels fitted in public areas. If those alarms are not acknowledged, the alarm is sent
to the quarters of all navigation officers.
