This part of ISO 22090 specifies general requirements, construction, performance and testing of Transmitting Heading Devices using GNSS principles as required by chapter V, SOLAS 1974 (as amended). A transmitting heading device (THD) is an electronic device that provides information about the ship's true heading. In addition to the general requirements contained in IMO Resolution A.694 (17) to which IEC 60945 is associated and the relevant standard for the sensing part used, the THD equipment shall comply with the following minimum requirements. Where the IMO performance standards that apply to the sensing part do not specify a geographical operating area the THD shall operate a) at a maximum rate of turn 20°/s; and b) from 70° latitude south to 70° latitude north as a minimum. The THDs complying with the requirements contained in this part of ISO 22090 can be used for heading information as contained in Chapter V of the SOLAS Convention. In addition such THDs should meet the dynamic requirements contained in the HSC Code, chapter 13 for the carriage of a suitable device providing heading information.
