Abstract : Except for the lack of visibility of the Commanding Officer, the C.O.T. Plot is superior to the Open Bridge in presenting information concerned with the effectiveness of ASW attacks. Because of the lack of visibility, C.O.T. Plot is deficient in presenting information concerned with the safety of the ship during air, surface and multiple ship ASW action. Commanding Officers differ in the extent to which they contribute actively to attack effectiveness. (Author)
