U.S Navy Returns To Compass & Pencil For Navigation To Avoid Collision At Sea



At least four major accidents have occurred in the western Pacific this year. The U.S. Navy has gone back to using compasses and pencils when it comes to navigating the high seas. New orders were issued earlier this month after a number of deadly accidents this year.

A lack of sleep coupled with a 100-hour working week for many sailors means they're fatigued and placing far too much reliance on automated navigation systems which has led to careless and costly errors in which lives have been lost.
