Re: US Navy murder to stop! All US Navy ships must NOW USE AIS!!
Naval vessels already have a fairly good tool under the ColRegs, of course they have to be using that tool, and make others aware that they are using that tool.
Restricted in her ability to maneuver includes, but is not limited to:
(v)*a vessel engaged in mineclearance operations,
(iv)*a vessel engaged in the launching or recovery of aircraft,
(iii)*a vessel engaged in replenishment or transferring persons, provisions or cargo while underway,
(ii)*a vessel engaged in dredging, surveying or underwater operations,
(i)*a vessel engaged in laying, servicing or picking up a navigation mark, submarine cable or pipeline,
Of course, vessels restricted in their ability to maneuver have certain obligations they must meet as well.
