International maritime signal flags ~ Flag Alphabet The system of international maritime signal flags is one system of flag signals representing individual letters of the alphabet in signals to or from ships. It is a component of the International Code of Signals (ICS).[1] Naval flag signalling undoubtably developed in antiquity in order to coordinate naval action of multiple vessels. In the Peloponnesian War (431 -- 401 BCE) squadrons of Athenian galleys were described by Thucydides as engaging in coordinated maneuvers which would have required some kind of communication;[1] there is no record of how such communication was done but flags would have been the most likely method. Flags have long been used to identify a ship's owner or nationality, or the commander of a squadron. But the use of flags for signalling messages long remained primitive, as indicated by the 1530 instruction that when the Admiral doth doth shote of a pece of Ordnance, and set up his Banner of Council on Starrborde bottocke of his Shippe, everie shipps capten shall with spede go aborde the Admyrall to know his will.[2] Several wars with the Dutch in the 17th century prompted the English to issue instructions for the conduct of particular fleets, such as (in 1673) the Duke of York's "Instructions for the better Ordering of His Majesties Fleet in Sayling". Signals were primitive and rather ad hoc ("As soon as the Admiral shall loose his fore-top and fire a gun..."), and generally a one-way communication system, as only flagships carried a complete set of flags. In 1790 Admiral Lord Howe issued a new signal book for a numerary system using numeral flags to signal a number; the number, not the mast from which the flags flew, indicated the message. Other admirals tried various systems; it was not until 1799 that the Admiralty issued a standardized signal code system for the entire Royal Navy. This was limited to only the signals listed in the Signal-Book. In 1800 Captain Sir Home Popham devised a means of extending this: signals made with a special "Telegraph" flag refererred to a separate dictionary of numbered words and phrases.[3] A similar system was devised by Captain Marryat in 1817 "for the use of vessels employed in the merchant service".[4] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_maritime_signal_flags Semaphore Flags : Semaphore Flags is the system for conveying information at a distance by means of visual signals with hand-held flags, rods, disks, paddles, or occasionally bare or gloved hands. Information is encoded by the position of the flags; it is read when the flag is in a fixed position. Semaphores were adopted and widely used (with hand-held flags replacing the mechanical arms of shutter semaphores) in the maritime world in the 19th century.[citation needed] It is still used during underway replenishment at sea and is acceptable for emergency communication in daylight or, using lighted wands instead of flags, at night.[citation needed] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semaphore VIdeo produced and copyright to Robert Nichol 2013
U.S. NAVY SIGNAL CORPS FLAG SEMAPHORE /  BLINKER / MORSE CODE TRAINING FILM  85664
 
25:23
Support Our Channel : https://www.patreon.com/PeriscopeFilm This fascinating 1943 U.S. Navy training film shows "How to Signal" using flag hoists, semaphore, and blinker to present morse code messages. The film was produced by F.H. Hargove of the Prior Motion Picture Company in New York and supposedly narrated by "Radcliffe Hall" (like a pseudonym for a radio announcer). A review in "Motor Boating" magazine noted that "the film shows pictorially how to learn the codes in the International Flag, Semaphore and Blinker systems of Communication. Expert signal men in the U.S. service serve as instructors and demonstrate the correct methods of using these three methods. It is designed so that the film may be repeated again and again until the student becomes familiar with the signal flags and positions of the semaphore, and the light flashes of the blinker…" Flag semaphore is the telegraphy system conveying information at a distance by means of visual signals with hand-held flags, rods, disks, paddles, or occasionally bare or gloved hands. Information is encoded by the position of the flags; it is read when the flag is in a fixed position. Semaphores were adopted and widely used (with hand-held flags replacing the mechanical arms of shutter semaphores) in the maritime world in the 19th century.[citation needed] It is still used during underway replenishment at sea and is acceptable for emergency communication in daylight or, using lighted wands instead of flags, at night. The use of lights for spelling out messages in Morse code dates back to 1867. With the advent of electric lights in the 1890s, the "blinker light" became an effective tool for signaling. Most widely used by naval ships, blinker lights were essential for merchant ships sailing in wartime convoys and observing radio silence. Blinker has remained a useful backup for merchant vessels, and until the late 1980s deck officers were trained in its use. Usually however, blinker work was done by the Radio Officer. Beginning in the 1930s, both civilian and military pilots were required to be able to use Morse code, both for use with early communications systems and for identification of navigational beacons which transmitted continuous two- or three-letter identifiers in Morse code. Aeronautical charts show the identifier of each navigational aid next to its location on the map. Radio telegraphy using Morse code was vital during World War II, especially in carrying messages between the warships and the naval bases of the belligerents. Long-range ship-to-ship communication was by radio telegraphy, using encrypted messages, because the voice radio systems on ships then were quite limited in both their range and their security. Radiotelegraphy was also extensively used by warplanes, especially by long-range patrol planes that were sent out by those navies to scout for enemy warships, cargo ships, and troop ships. Morse code is a method of transmitting text information as a series of on-off tones, lights, or clicks that can be directly understood by a skilled listener or observer without special equipment. The International Morse Code encodes the ISO basic Latin alphabet, some extra Latin letters, the Arabic numerals and a small set of punctuation and procedural signals (prosigns) as standardized sequences of short and long signals called "dots" and "dashes", or "dits" and "dahs", as in amateur radio practice. Because many non-English natural languages use more than the 26 Roman letters, extensions to the Morse alphabet exist for those languages. Each Morse code symbol represents either a text character (letter or numeral) or a prosign and is represented by a unique sequence of dots and dashes. The duration of a dash is three times the duration of a dot. Each dot or dash is followed by a short silence, equal to the dot duration. The letters of a word are separated by a space equal to three dots (one dash), and the words are separated by a space equal to seven dots. The dot duration is the basic unit of time measurement in code transmission. To increase the speed of the communication, the code was designed so that the length of each character in Morse varies approximately inversely to its frequency of occurrence in English. Thus the most common letter in English, the letter "E", has the shortest code, a single dot.

False GPS signals allow Texas university students to take control of ship
 
01:22
FALSE beacons on treacherous headlands. Hijacked lighthouses. Now, a new peril faces those who go to sea faked GPS signals from "wreckers" taking control of their vessels. A group of University of Texas students has demonstrated how easy such electronic "spoofing" is by taking control of an $80m yacht with permission, of course. Professor Todd Humpreys from the department of aerospace engineering and engineering mechanics led the team which created a false GPS signal generator which was able to override the ships navigation computers as it travelled from Monaco to Rhodes in the Mediterranean. The ship - the White Rose of Drachs , a 65m luxury yacht owned by British property magnate Michael Evans - set off an alarm, telling the crew that it had wandered off course. The "correct" course was plotted by the computers for the crew, who saw no reason not to accept the instruction. The ship's automated systems were completely unaware of what was going on. Crew aboard the ship reported there was not a single signal or alarm indicating the new course plot was incorrect. Such spoofing is reminiscent of a long history of "wrecking" where false lighthouses and beacons were established on remote and dangerous stretches of coast. Ships would be lured to their fate on the rocks, where piratical salvage crews sought to recover their valuable cargoes. "I didn't know, until we performed this experiment, just how possible it is to spoof a marine vessel and how difficult it is to detect this attack." Professor Humphreys said. "With 90 per cent of the world's freight moving across the seas and a great deal of the world's human transportation going across the skies, we have to gain a better understanding of the broader implications of GPS spoofing."

Flag semaphore is the telegraphy system conveying information at a distance by means of visual signals with hand-held flags, rods, disks, paddles, or occasionally bare or gloved hands. Information is encoded by the position of the flags; it is read when the flag is in a fixed position. Semaphores were adopted and widely used (with hand-held flags replacing the mechanical arms of shutter semaphores) in the maritime world in the 19th century. It is still used during underway replenishment at sea and is acceptable for emergency communication in daylight or, using lighted wands instead of flags, at night.

According to the defense ministry in Seoul, a South Korean patrol boat contacted a North Korean boat, which responded immediately. Maritime radio communications were shut down in May 2008. The decision to reopen them was based on the Panmunjom Declaration by the leaders of South and North Korea when they met in April... and on recent talks between the two sides' militaries.

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: International maritime signal flags Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ In case you don't find one that you were looking for, put a comment. This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= International maritime signal flags refers to various flags used to communicate with ships. The principal system of flags and associated codes is the International Code of Signals. Various navies have flag systems with additional flags and codes, and other flags are used in special uses, or have historical significance.There are various methods by which the flags can be used as signals: A series of flags can spell out a message, each flag representing a letter. Individual flags have specific and standard meanings; for example, diving support vessels raise the "A" flag indicating their inability to move from their current location because they have a diver underwater and to warn other vessels to keep clear to avoid endangering the diver(s) with their propellers. One or more flags form a code word whose meaning can be looked up in a code book held by both parties. An example is the Popham numeric code used at the Battle of Trafalgar. In yacht racing and dinghy racing, flags have other meanings; for example, the P flag is used as the "preparatory" flag to indicate an imminent start, and the S flag means "shortened course" (for more details see Race signals).NATO uses the same flags, with a few unique to warships, alone or in short sets to communicate various unclassified messages. The NATO usage generally differs from the international meanings, and therefore warships will fly the Code/answer flag above the signal to indicate it should be read using the international meaning. During the Allied occupations of Axis countries after World War II, use and display of those nations' national flags was banned. In order to comply with the international legal requirement that a ship identify its registry by displaying the appropriate national ensign, swallow-tailed versions of the C, D, and E signal flags were designated as, respectively, provisional German, Okinawan, and Japanese civil ensigns. Being swallowtails, they are commonly referred to as the "C-pennant" (German: C-Doppelstander), "D-pennant", and "E-pennant".

AI to power Indian Navy’s Combat Management System in its Indigenous Aircraft Carrier
 
05:45
This video shows you that Artificial Intelligence to power Indian Navy’s Combat Management System in its Indigenous Aircraft Carrier. Indian Navy has achieved advancements to the level of Fleet level planning i.e. the Flag Ship can plan for the fleet ships to efficiently & effectively engage an enemy threat as perceived at a Theatre level. With its own indigenous Aircraft Carrier (IAC), and indigenous Combat Management System (CMS), India has taken a quantum leap in naval warfare in coming decades. CMS fitted on IAC caters for the enhancement of Threat Evaluation & Resource Allocation (TERA) to effectively integrate the carrier borne MiG 29K’s mission planning in the offensive/defensive role. The government is now pushing for a rapid development in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Milind Kulshreshtha, C4I expert says that the CMS are mission critical, real time embedded systems with role of Decision Support System (DSS) for the three dimensional (air, surface & sub-surface) threat perceived by Command at sea. The systems are highly complex and utilize high end processors with RTOS (Real Time Operating System) software. “The CMS completes the ‘sensor to shooter’ loop through an automated ‘Decision’ mechanism achieved via unique warfare algorithms. All Sensors and Weapons systems fitted onboard Own ship and Fleet task force ships are connected at single point at each CMS node through onboard digital data bus and, externally via Data link through On-air protocol,” explains Kulshreshtha, who has steered multiple indigenous CMS programmes including CMS-SNF, CMS-28 & CMS-15A, to Financial Express Online. Indian Navy has achieved advancements to the level of Fleet level planning i.e. the Flag Ship can plan for the fleet ships to efficiently & effectively engage an enemy threat as perceived at a Theatre level. According to him each Task Force ship is capable of seeing Common Tactical Operating Picture for threat engagement. For any naval task force at sea, & TERA capability plays the most decisive role in a sea battle, with TERA being measured through real time “susceptibility and vulnerability” computations for the Task Force battle group. With enemy possessing modern long range Air to Surface missiles (ASM) launched from high speed manoeuvrable fighter aircrafts (possessing radar detection avoidance features), CMS with cutting edge TERA technology for countering these threats is only deciding factor to achieve command on high seas. Efforts to garner the C3I (Command, Control, Communication & Intelligence) capabilities by Indian Navy started in 1980’s with induction of IPN-10, which helped launch an ambitious indigenous project of EMCCA (Equipment Modular Command & Control Assembly).

Light Signal used to Supplement Sound Signal:  Delay in Sound Reaching Observer
 
00:11
Video animation to show the delay between a supplemental light signal being seen and the corresponding sound reaching an observer. The delay approximates to the time for taken for sound to travel a mile at sea level. Sound signals used to indicate a vessel is manoeuvring or is uncertain of another’s intentions may be supplemented by a light signal. On some vessels the light is synchronised with the ship’s sound signal. Full details: http://sailskills.co.uk/colregs/Sailskills_signals_note_light_signals.html

Semaphore flag
 
01:19
Had to write a letter to the statue here at Alfred asking him about the words that were around him and one word that I stuck to was faith and I asked him "faith in what?" What do we as a student body have to be faithful for? We were told to shorten our letters and tell them though using semaphore flag signals.

01:15
Hellenic Navy General Support Ship A470 HS Aliakmon lowering the Flag just before sunset during deployment for Navy exercise Kataigida 2018 in east Aegean Sea. Info from Hellenic Navy webpage: Builders: Bremer Vulcan Launched: 30-7-1968 Commissioned: 19-10-1994 Length (m): 114,4 Beam (m): 13,2 Draught (m): 4,5 Speed (knots): 17 Main machinery: MAYBACH 872 2 x 3.000 PS Transport Capacity: 2442 DIESEL tonnes oil, Fresh Water 203 m 3, 8 Missile ΕΧΟCET The history of name "ALIAKMON", in the HN begins with the Minesweeper, one of the forth-English piscatorial 'Mersey' type which were bought by the Hellenic Government in 1938 and adapted. The second one, which used this name, is the Landing l-104. It was been taken from U.K at 1-5-47 by the Great Lieutenant D.Theodorou and arrivaled in Greece at 2-6-47. It was intensively used for military and national carries at the first antebellum years, but also in trainings. It was surrender at the B.N in 1969. This little ship of backing "SAARBURG" was launched at 1 March of 1966 in the dockyard BLOM and VOSS at the Ambourg. In the Spring of 1976 placed among the G. N. In May of 1994 it was decommissioned and raced Hellenic flag at the Naval station of Grete. It was named H.S ALIAKMON with number A-470. HS ALIAKMON (T.S. SAARBURG) is a General Support ship, type LUNEBERG. HS ALIAKMON, HS AXIOS and HS PROMITHEUS form the General Support Ship Squadron. H.S. ALIAKMON was lain in Blohm and Voss shipyards, in Hamburg, in 1969. It was donated to Hellenic Naνy by the German Νaνy on the 19th October of 1994, as a gesture of friendship towards an allied country. Ιt was named after a Greek river called ALIAKMON. The river ALIAKMON is one of the largest rivers of Macedonia. It has a length of 279 Κm. It derives the mount VΟΙΟΝ and ends in the bay of THERMAIKOS, 20 Km southwest of AXIOS river. The greatest width of the river is 120 m and the depth of the water reaches 1,5 m. The ancient Macedonians worshiped rivers as Gods. Most belieνed that the river ALIAKMON was a son of OCEANOS and TITHIS, a concept conceived by ISIODOS. Some others though that it was a son of PALAISTAINE. The mission of HS ALIAΚMON is to provide with support other warship units (Frigates, Patrol boats etc). As a result, these units are able to maintain operation tasks far from their shore-bases. In order to carry out its mission, she carries a load of 1.500 tons of various materials. HS ALIAΚMON is able to supply the following: Fuel, Ammunitions, Torpedoes, Missiles, Potable Water, Spare Parts, Medical Treatment, Consuming goods. She can deliver these materials, either underway or anchored, due to its up to date means of transport. HS ALIAΚMON can also function as a command ship, due to its high communication capabilities. For self-defence HS ALIAKMON is equipped with two (2) twin guns of 40 mm and two (2) twin antiaircraft guns of 20 mm type RHEINMETAL.
