Blind pilotage means the navigation of the ship through restricted waters in low visibility with little or no recourse to the visual observation of objects outside the ship. The principal non-visual aid to navigation that enables this to be done is high-definition warning-surface radar, but all available nonvisual aids are employed. The organisation to achieve this is called the blind pilotage organisation, comprising a BP team, led by a BP Officer (BPO)
