This would a collision avoidance protocol. For example, measure maximum
height of the carrier class unit, compare to minimum height of the
terrestrial routed physical path bridge. If the CCU exceeds the TRPPB, it
must back off and wait until the next measurement cycle or until the
measurement process if manually initiated. Some consideration has to be
made for the potential fluctuation of the media path of the CCU.
There's some discussion of Panama requirements in 'The New New
Not just a lock, but there's a bridge to worry about; passing under
at low tide is your height limit.
i would imagine the problem would be at high, not low, tide.
oops. mea culpa.
Sorry to add yet another post to a pointless thread but...
Lloyd was right the first time. Height limit would be based on low tide.
For ships that are near the height limit, waiting a mean time of 6 hours
for the next low tide is not a big deal.
